Physics and statistics

A.Y. 2020/2021
Overall hours
FIS/07 MED/01
Learning objectives
The aim of this course is:
-To provide the basic notions and the methods of biomedical physics;
-To provide the principles of mechanics and their applications to human locomotion;
-To provide the principles of fluid dynamics and thermodynamics and their applications to human physiology.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course, the students:
- will be able to use, in a rigorous manner, the language and the units of Physics;
- will be able to describe quantitatively the mechanics of locomotion and some key physiological processes.
