College Physics for Students of Biology and Chemistry

From Ken Koehler, Associate Professor of Physics at Raymond Walters College, this physics hypertextbook is intended "as a vehicle for students in the biological and chemical sciences, enabling them to understand the physical underpinnings of their later studies." With a focus on the activities of measurement and prediction as they apply to the study of physics, the lessons are intended for serious students with a working knowledge of algebra and some college level biology and chemistry. The chapters cover mechanics, fluids, electricity, magnetism, atomic physics, nuclear physics, thermodynamics, and wave physics. There is a short list of links for further research. Some of the problems may require Java or Mathematica. While the site is has a basic, text-only look to it, this is an excellent resource for physics, chemistry, and biology students.
