SCI 250 - Applied Physics w/ Lab


This physics-based course explores the mechanical and anatomical principles of human movement. Students examine the interaction of the body with the environment through sports, performing arts, and everyday activities. Areas of study include stability, stress and strain, mechanical properties of connective tissue, therapeutic application, practice of preventive health and disease control, and the formulation of public health policy. Lecture, problem solving, and laboratory experiments serve to strengthen the understanding of classical mechanics, and its applications to occupational therapy, physical therapy, sports medicine, epidemiology, and education.
