Eastwick College | Evaluated Learning Experience
Conceptual Physics (PHYS 101)
May 2022 – Present
Upon successful completion of the learning experience, students will be able to: identify the concepts of physics as they pertain to their application in the allied health field and cardiovascular technology; explain how waves and sound are directly associated with medical sonography; apply Bernoulli’s principles as it pertains to normal blood flow through vessels; discuss the scientific significance that Newton’s laws have on modern civilization; explain types of energy and how they are related to ultrasound machines; analyze and understand sound waves and properties of waves applicable to medical ultrasound; illustrate frequency, wavelength, and amplitude of waves and apply these concepts to diagnostic ultrasound procedures; and use scientific and qualitative reasoning to convert mathematical values from the English system into the metric system, and vice versa.
Textbook readings, lectures, worksheets, exams, lab activities, research and PowerPoint presentations by instructor and students.
In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 4 semester hours in Principles of Physics, Conceptual Physics, or Introduction to Physics, and 1 semester hour as a Lab (5/22).
