Here is a new edition of one of the first texts specifically designed to provide students of medicine and biology with a treatment of physics related to their fields of study. Assuming a basic understanding of physics, it carefully develops ideas from first principles, using calculus and statistics when necessary but avoiding complex mathematics. Coverage includes translational and rotational equilibrium, with a description of the forces in the hip joint as a clinical example; exponential growth and decay, giving examples from pharmacology and physiology; nuclear physics and medical applications; X-ray production and their biological effects; diffusion and transport of solute in an infinite medium, and much more. Most chapters have been revised, and new material has been added on charged membranes, biomagnetism, image reconstruction, and magnetic resonance imaging. The text also contains computer programs on numerical integrations, Fourier series, and image reconstruction.
