Much of modern medicine requires a knowledge of physics in order to understand and apply it. If you need to know the physics behind a blood pressure guage, an ultrasound doppler scan, or what gives contrast in an x-ray image, then Physics 21 and Physics 22 series are for you.

Physics 21 is the first course of a two semester sequence of calculus based general physics. Recommended for Life Science majors and premedical students. This course uses calculus to analyze and solve problems in mechanics, heat and geometrical optics. Physics 21, 22 are acceptable for all Life Science and premedical curricula.

Transfer Units (UC:CSU): 4

Prerequisites: Physics 11  or high school physics
