This concise, first-year text in physics provides a suitable introduction to the subject for students specializing in physics as well as for those for whom it is a subsiduary subject. The book includes many applications of physics to the human body and to the health sciences in general. The problems require arithmetic and elementary algebra (and a very little trigonometry), but no calculus. Each chapter starts with the more familiar and works toward the more abstract - beginning with a list of questions, which serve as chapter goals, and ending with a summary. Each chapter also contains a list of succinctly defined key terms, each of which appears in an index. This feature makes the book a sort of physics encyclopedia, or quick- reference book. Topics covered range from Force and Motion, Acceleration, and Energy and Power to Fluid Flow, Entropy, and Sound and Vision. Many exercises are included.
