PHY 116 Physics I
3 class hours, 2 laboratory hours; 4 credits
Intended for Biology and Health Science majors. Weight, balance; forces and torques exerted by muscles; introduction to motion and fluid flow; conservation of energy in animate and inanimate systems; energy consumption and metabolism; heat, gravitation, molecular potential energies; energy levels and transitions; binding and dissociation in large and small systems; free energy in chemistry and biology. Articulated experiments include mechanical systems simulating forces and torques in the human arm, energy conversion such as electrical energy to heat.
