PHYS E-1AX Physics I (Lecture): Mechanics, Elasticity, Fluids, and Diffusion
This course is an introduction to classical mechanics, with special emphasis on the motion in fluids of biological objects, from proteins to people. Topics covered include momentum and energy conservation, kinematics, Newton's laws of motion, oscillations, elasticity, fluids, random walks, and diffusion. Examples and problem set questions are drawn from the life sciences and medicine. This course does not include a lab; students who need a physics lab should enroll concurrently in PHYS E-1axl.
