Physiological Physics

Session: Fall 2014 (9/02-12/10)
Instructor: John Broadhurst (e-mail: broad010 @
Time: 1430 MWThF
Location: KHKH 3115

This is a fourteen week course, during which we shall cover chapters one through seven of the text (Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology, Hobbie et al 4th Edition). This implies that we shall spend approximately two weeks on each chapter. It is however intended that the course will be taught in a flexible manner, with more time devoted to certain topics, and less to others, so as to maximize the usefulness of the available time. A web questionnaire will be available in the first week to collect information about your individual interests. This means that you will need to skim over the first seven chapters of the book in the first week, and before the first class, you should have read the first chapter carefully. All required work will be conducted by e-mail and web access. A short problem set will be e-mailed to you at the end of weeks two, four, six, eight, ten, and twelve.
