Newton's Laws of Motion and Static Equilibrium

A self-contained course on Newton's laws applied to conditions of static equilibrium. The course starts by developing the appropriate background in Newton's first law introducing the concept of inertia. The concept of acceleration is defined and Newton's second law relating net force to acceleration is presented. The conclusion of preliminary material is Newton's third law on the symmetry of forces. Newton's second law is formulated for the first condition of equilibrium and used to solve equilibrium problems satisfying the appropriate conditions. Necessary mathematical concepts are introduced during the solution of problems. The concept of torque is introduced and Newton's second law formulated for the second condition of equilibrium and used to solve problems involving equilibrium of rigid bodies. Level: This is an upper level high school course, requiring knowledge of algebra. Time: approximately 6 hours

The Physiology Module is a self-paced and self-guided module designed to ensure incoming student pharmacists have a foundational knowledge of physiology in preparation for the pharmacy curriculum. Physiology underpins pathophysiology (Pathophysiology of Human Disease), pharmacology (Foundations of Clinical Pharmacology), and pharmacokinetics (Foundations of Pharmacokinetics) which are directly related to pharmacotherapy and patient care. As such, this module provides you with a foundation upon which more advanced therapeutic concepts will be built within the therapeutic modules during the next three years. The module specifically focuses on the following seven physiologic systems: cardiovascular, renal, hematology, central nervous system, respiratory, endocrine, and gastrointestinal.
