AbstractThis course is an introduction to classical physics, with special focus on applications in medicine.
ObjectiveObtain an understanding of basic concepts in classical physics and their application (using mathematical pre-knowledge) to the solution of simple problems, including certain applications in medicine.
Obtain an understanding of relevant quantities and of orders of magnitude.
ContentGeneral introduction; Positron-Emission-Tomography as appetizer, including ionising radiation; kinematics of a point mass; dynamics of a point mass (Newton's axioms and forces); physical work, power and energy; conservation of linear and angular momentum; oscillations and waves; mechanics of a rigid body; fluid mechanics; introduction to electricity.
Lecture notesWill be distributed at the start of the semester.
