Physics is the branch of science that focuses on the study of the fundamental and physical properties of matter and energy. Physics was among the first, if not the first, areas of thought to stem from philosophy under the umbrella term of natural philosophy. Since its inception, physics has been closely associated with mathematics. The ultimate goal of this branch of science is understanding the universe in quantitative and objective terms. Today, physics is a diverse field with multiple branches, such as classical, nuclear, atomic, and mechanical physics, among others.
In this course, students will be introduced to methods of calculation in physics along with discussions on different energy types such as force, work, momentum, and equilibrium; electrostatics, circuitry, and magnetism; light and sound; thermodynamics; and thermochemistry. A physicist's understanding of the atom will also be touched upon. For optimal comprehension, students are required to have a high-school–level understanding of physics, chemistry, and calculus.
Several concepts of physics are used in the modern world and constantly leveraged to fuel innovations. For a medical student, a solid understanding of physics is an important cornerstone for grasping the applied concepts of biophysics commonly used in human physiology. Examples of these concepts include the fluid mechanics of blood flow, bioelectricity in membrane potentials, bioenergetics and thermodynamics in the packaging of energy in the form of ATP, and exothermic reactions that break down ATP.
Straight to the point explained well. I have had a time trying to study physics. this makes stuff way easier
I am engineer I have studied this long time ago I was also University Professor 7 years I do know how to recognise a good teacher when I see one He is really good
man, i was so confused about this topic but now I'm clear , I'm very pleased
Very good explanation. I thank Lecturio for making this true.
