PHYS 102 Intro Physics for Life Science

This course provides an overview of topics in physics that are of particular importance to the life and medical sciences. The course is non-calculus based and covers mechanics (units, motion, biomechanics, energy), electricity and magnetism, heat, atomic and nuclear physics, fluids, waves, and instrumentations, all in the context of biological systems. (May not be taken for credit by students who have completed PHYS 201; credit may not be received for both PHYS 102 and PHYS 103.) (1) Lecture: 3 hrs/wk; Laboratory: 3 hrs/wk. 1 Unit
