PHYS 234 - Physics for the Life Sciences II
The second part of a two-semester course in general physics specifically oriented towards applications relevant for students in biology and pre-medical programs. The course covers basic statistical physics, electricity and magnetism, and optics done in authentic biological contexts. PREREQUISITE(S): PHYS 233 or consent of department. Three hours lecture, four hours laboratory/discussion each week.
4 semester hours
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:
- Explain and use the properties of matter and thermodynamics in biological contexts.
- Explain the role of model building in the interpretation of biological phenomena.
- Solve problems with mixed units in the context of properties of matter and thermodynamics.
- Explain biological effects arising from competitive scaling.
