PHY 1031   Health Science Physics I   Credits: 3

In this course, students will apply critical thinking and problem solving techniques to relate physics concepts to typical applications in the Health Science field. Concepts studied include one dimensional linear motion; Newton's Laws of Motion and the relationship of force to pressure; work, kinetic and potential energy, and power; temperature, heat and heat transfer as applied to the Health Sciences. Students will apply Pascal's Principle, Poiseuille's Law, Archimedes' Principle, and Bernoulli's Theorem to the circulatory and respiratory systems. This course is mandatory for students wishing to enter the diploma Health Science Imaging programs at Cambrian College upon completion of the Pre-Health program.
