Physics with Health Science Applications presents an understanding of basic concepts in physics and prepares students to apply them both professionally and in everyday life. It is intended for the courses in physics with health science applications commonly taken by students majoring in allied health, nursing, physical therapy, kinesiology, and related disciplines.
The publication introduces topics with familiar everyday examples before proceeding to general principles. Numerous examples with step-by-step solutions and applications related to the health sciences and everyday situations are used to illustrate physical principles. This enables the student to understand the general principles and their relevance; the unifying aspect of physical laws and the basic simplicity of nature form the underlying theme of the text.
The publication includes access to a website with step-by-step solutions to numerous homework problems, approximately 30 audiovisual lessons on fundamental topics, and 11 labs that enhance and expand topics ranging from vector addition to radioactive half-life.
