PH 2700 - Physics for the Life Sciences I


(3)
An introduction to physics for students majoring in science or interested in medical or therapy-related pre-professional programs. This course will emphasize the scientific method and physical reasoning, particularly a conceptual understanding and the applicability of physics to the students’ major area of study and career interests. Course content will cover concepts of classical mechanics: conservation of energy and momentum, forces, motion and waves. These physical theories support a huge variety of phenomena directly accessible to our senses by improving our understanding of the body, biomechanics, and the relationship of physics to medicine, healthcare and therapy. Students will be expected to demonstrate conceptual and applied understanding of physics principles through class discourse, the design of projects utilizing physics principles, and written assessment.

Corequisite: PH 2710 .
