Each topic is developed quantitatively using high school-level algebra (linear equations, simultaneous equations), trigonometric functions, and vectors. Applications focus on typical situations--e.g., the need for and proper use of a cane- the need for heat transfer from the body to the environment during exercise and the relative contributions of the various mechanisms (convection, radiation, evaporation of sweat)- the relation between energy ingested as food and energy expended during exercise- etc. Motion- Force- Vectors- Newtons Second Law- Momentum And Impulse- Angular Motion- Torque- Shoulder- Knee- Lower Back- FHP- Heat And Energy- Conservation Of Energy- Work- Chemical Energy- Elastic Energy- Nuclear Energy.

For premedical students, Physical Therapists, and Occupational Therapists.
