AIMS OF THE COURSE
The course is aimed at
· enforcing the methodology of physics, and the scientific approach to problems.
· conveying the fundamental principles of physics and their implications in the biomedical field, with particular reference to topics of relevance for the following courses: forces and equilibrium, work and energy, conservation principles, mechanics of fluids, surface tension, principles of thermodynamics, basic concepts of electricity and magnetism, electromagnetic radiation.
· teaching how to solve simple problems on topics directly related to the biomedical field and how to give qualitative and quantitative estimates of phenomena.

TOPICS
· The laws of motion as a result of applied forces
· Equilibrium of an extended body
· Work and energy
· Energy conservation
· Static and dynamics of fluids
· Viscosity and flow of viscous fluids
· Interfacial phenomena and surface tension
· Gas and gas law
· Temperature
· Heat as a form of energy, energy balance
· Thermodynamic processes
· Entropy, thermodynamic potentials
· Electrostatics, field and potential, capacity
· Current and Ohm's law
· Electromagnetic waves and radiation spectrum, radiation-matter interaction, absorption coefficients

In the first part of the course mathematics concepts will be recalled, applied to solving physics problems.
