By Professor Dr. Irving P. Herman (auth.)

Physics of the Human Body comprehensively addresses the actual and engineering features of human body structure through the use of and development on first-year university physics and arithmetic. issues comprise the mechanics of the static physique and the physique in movement, the fabrics houses of the physique, muscle tissues within the physique, the energetics of physique metabolism, fluid movement within the cardiovascular and breathing structures, the acoustics of sound waves in conversing and listening to, imaginative and prescient and the optics of the attention, homes of the physique, and the elemental engineering rules of suggestions and keep an eye on in regulating all points of functionality. The objective of this article is to appreciate actual concerns about the human physique, partially by way of constructing after which utilizing basic and accordingly extra sophisticated versions of the macrophysics of the human physique. Many chapters contain a short overview of the mandatory actual ideas. There are difficulties on the finish of every bankruptcy; strategies to chose difficulties also are supplied. this article is geared to undergraduates attracted to physics, scientific purposes of physics, quantitative body structure, drugs, and biomedical engineering.
