Description : Authors Philip R. Kesten and David L. Tauck take a fresh and innovative approach to the university physics (calculus-based) course. They combine their experience teaching physics (Kesten) and biology (Tauck) to create a text that engages students by using biological and medical applications and examples to illustrate key concepts. University Physics for the Physical and Life Sciences teaches the fundamentals of introductory physics, while weaving in formative physiology, biomedical, and life science topics to help students connect physics to living systems. The authors help life science and pre-med students develop a deeper appreciation for why physics is important to their future work and daily lives. With its thorough coverage of concepts and problem-solving strategies, University Physics for the Physical and Life Sciences can also be used as a novel approach to teaching physics to engineers and scientists or for a more rigorous approach to teaching the college physics (algebra-based) course. University Physics for the Physical and Life Sciences utilizes six key features to help students learn the principle concepts of university physics: • A seamless blend of physics and physiology with interesting examples of physics in students’ lives, • A strong focus on developing problem-solving skills (Set Up, Solve, and Reflect problem-solving strategy), • Conceptual questions (Got the Concept) built into the flow of the text, • "Estimate It!" problems that allow students to practice important estimation skills • Special attention to common misconceptions that often plague students, and • Detailed artwork designed to promote visual learning Volume I: 1-4292-0493-1 Volume II: 1-4292-8982-1

Description : Physics in Biology and Medicine, Fourth Edition explores concepts in physics as they apply to living systems. The discussion is organized into 18 chapters encompassing thermodynamics, electricity, optics, sound, solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and atomic and nuclear physics. Each chapter provides a brief review of the background physics before focusing on the applications of physics to biology and medicine. The book describes biological systems and presents calculations of the forces exerted by muscles, as well as the maximum impact that can be sustained by a body without injury, the height from which a person can jump, the effect of an animals size on the speed at which it can run, and the circulation of blood in the body. Using the theory of fluids, the role of diffusion in the functioning of cells and the effect of surface tension on the growth of plants in soil are also analyzed. Using the principles of electricity, the conduction of impulses along the nervous system is investigated. Each section contains problems that explore and expand some of the concepts, and some of the techniques of physics and engineering are applied to the study of living systems. Moreover, the use of lasers in medical diagnostics and the applications of nanotechnology in biology and medicine are considered. This book will be a valuable resource for students and professors of physics, biology, and medicine, as well as for applied health workers. Provides practical techniques for applying knowledge of physics to the study of living systems Presents material in a straight forward manner requiring very little background in physics or biology Includes many figures, examples and illustrative problems and appendices which provide convenient access to the most important concepts of mechanics, electricity, and optics in the body

Description : Traditionally, the natural sciences have been divided into two branches: the biological sciences and the physical sciences. Today, an increasing number of scientists are addressing problems lying at the intersection of the two. These problems are most often biological in nature, but examining them through the lens of the physical sciences can yield exciting results and opportunities. For example, one area producing effective cross-discipline research opportunities centers on the dynamics of systems. Equilibrium, multistability, and stochastic behavior--concepts familiar to physicists and chemists--are now being used to tackle issues associated with living systems such as adaptation, feedback, and emergent behavior. Research at the Intersection of the Physical and Life Sciences discusses how some of the most important scientific and societal challenges can be addressed, at least in part, by collaborative research that lies at the intersection of traditional disciplines, including biology, chemistry, and physics. This book describes how some of the mysteries of the biological world are being addressed using tools and techniques developed in the physical sciences, and identifies five areas of potentially transformative research. Work in these areas would have significant impact in both research and society at large by expanding our understanding of the physical world and by revealing new opportunities for advancing public health, technology, and stewardship of the environment. This book recommends several ways to accelerate such cross-discipline research. Many of these recommendations are directed toward those administering the faculties and resources of our great research institutions--and the stewards of our research funders, making this book an excellent resource for academic and research institutions, scientists, universities, and federal and private funding agencies.
