We'll explore a number of "everyday" phenomena, such as heat, fluids, and optics (the focussing and control of visible light) from the quantitative vantage point of physics. Much of the material in the class is particularly useful for people intending careers in Life and Health Sciences. Also, the sections on energy and thermodynamics form the basics of energy science which, as we all know, is coming into greater and greater focus these days.
