Biophysics : A Physiological Approach, Hardback Book

Biophysics : A Physiological Approach Hardback

Description

Specifically tailored to life science students, this textbook explains quantitative aspects of human biophysics with examples drawn from contemporary physiology, genetics and nanobiology.

It outlines important physical ideas, equations and examples at the heart of contemporary physiology, along with the organization necessary to understand that knowledge.

The wide range of biophysical topics covered include energetics, bond formation and dissociation, diffusion and directed transport, muscle and connective tissue physics, fluid flow, membrane structure, electrical properties and transport, pharmacokinetics and system dynamics and stability.

Enabling students to understand the uses of quantitation in modern biology, equations are presented in the context of their application, rather than derivation.

They are each directed toward the understanding of a biological principle, with a particular emphasis on human biology.

Supplementary resources, including a range of test questions, are available at www.cambridge.org/9781107001442.
