Spring 2013 Course: PHYSICS OF THE HUMAN BODY

Physics of the Human Body
Applied Physics E1300  
Call Number 88283    
3.0 points  (lecture course)
Spring 2013    MW 4:10pm - 5:25 pm   
Prerequisites: Physics “I”, Calculus “I”;
Corequisites: Physics “II”, Calculus “II”
Instructor: Professor Irving P. Herman

This course analyzes the human body from the basic principles of physics.  Principles derived in first-year physics are applied directly or after modest extension.  In each case a simple model of the body organ, property, or function is devised and then applied, sometimes using introductory calculus.  This course is targeted for prospective and current pre-med and biomedical engineering majors, as well as prospective applied physics and other majors.  It is a SEAS professional-level course.

Given the level of the treatment, it is suitable for first and second year undergraduates, as well as for upper classpeople in SEAS, CC, GS and Barnard.
