Description : Each chapter has three types of learning aides for students: open-ended questions, multiple-choice questions, and quantitative problems. There is an average of about 50 per chapter. There are also a number of worked examples in the chapters, averaging over 5 per chapter, and almost 600 photos and line drawings.
Description : Facts101 is your complete guide to Physics of the Life Sciences. In this book, you will learn topics such as as those in your book plus much more. With key features such as key terms, people and places, Facts101 gives you all the information you need to prepare for your next exam. Our practice tests are specific to the textbook and we have designed tools to make the most of your limited study time.
Description : This book provides undergraduate life science students taking a general physics class with physics that is directly relevant to the life sciences. It develops the basic concepts of physics in a manner that they can be directly used to explain the 'engineering' of living organisms, from the operation of the skeleton to the interaction between DNA and proteins. Topics such as the physics of statics, elasticity, fluids, and physical chemistry that are rich in life-science applications are emphasized. A clear understanding of this material should provide students with a solid foundation for future biochemistry, molecular biology, and physiology students. It should prepare life science students for tests, such as the MCAT exam.
Description : This book aims to demystify fundamental biophysics for students in the health and biosciences required to study physics and to understand the mechanistic behaviour of biosystems. The text is well supplemented by worked conceptual examples that will constitute the main source for the students, while combining conceptual examples and practice problems with more quantitative examples and recent technological advances.
Description : The international conference on which the book is based brought together many of the world's leading experts, with particular effort on the interaction between established scientists and emerging young promising researchers, as well as on the interaction of pure and applied mathematics. All material has been rigorously refereed. The contributions contain much material developed after the conference, continuing research and incorporating additional new results and improvements. In addition, some up-to-date surveys are included.
