PHYS 003L. General Physics I: Motion, Forces, and Energy with Biological and Medical Applications
This course discusses the topics from the first semester of introductory physics with the greatest biological, biochemical, and medical relevance, namely motion, forces (both statics and dynamics), torques (primarily statics), work, conservation of energy and momentum, oscillations, fluid statics and dynamics, and thermal and statistical phenomena. A core goal is to develop connections between physics and the other sciences. The course addresses the appropriate medical school competencies (in conjunction with PHYS 004L ) and includes a weekly laboratory.
Prerequisite: MATH 015 (may be taken concurrently).
Natural sciences and engineering practicum.
Includes one laboratory weekly.
