Even More from the Preface

From the preface of the 3rd edition of Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology, written by Russ Hobbie:

"Because the book is intended primarily for students who have taken only one year of physics, I have tried to adhere to the following principles in writing it:

1. Calculus is used without apology...

2. The reader is assumed to have taken physics and to know the basic vocabulary...

3. I have not intentionally left out steps in most derivations....

4. Each subject is approached in as simple a fashion as possible..."
