Partial contents:
Viscous Fluids -- Rotational Motion -- Special Relativity and Quantum Physics - Newton’s Laws of Motion for a Particle Moving in One Dimension -- Work and Energy in One Dimension -- Geometrical Optics -- Electric Forces and Fields -- Electric Energy and Potential -- Sound -- Magnetic Fields -- Electromagnetic Induction and Radiation -- Optical Lenses and Devices -- Momentum -- Motion, Forces, and Energy in More Than One Dimension -- Ideal Fluids -- Applications of Newton’s Laws of Motion in One Dimension -- Imaging Using Wave Optics -- The Structure of Matter -- Thermodynamics: Beyond the First Law -- Electric Current and Cell Membranes -- Waves and Resonance -- Thermal Energy -- Electromagnetic Waves -- Nuclear Physics and Medical Applications.
Abstract: Originally developed for the author's course at Union College, this text is designed for life science students who need to understand the connections of fundamental physics to modern biology and medicine. Almost all areas of modern life sciences integrally involve physics in both experimental techniques and in basic understanding of structure and function.
