College Physics for Students of Biology and Chemistry
by Kenneth R. Koehler
Publisher: Raymond Walters College 2003
Number of pages: 352
This is a physics hypertextbook: it is intended as a vehicle for students in the biological and chemical sciences, enabling them to understand the physical underpinnings of their later studies. As often as possible, the systems under investigation will relate to human physiology, for there is no substitute for relevance to motivate the study of a subject.
