• Practical experimental work is a fundamental part of science. It provides a way of verifying and disproving theories. An experiment usually involves, setting out an objective, establish a valid procedure of how to go about achieving it, performing the experiment and getting the results, interpreting the outcome and finally presenting the work undergone. Each and every setup is bound to have errors that need to be identified and counteracted for by adequate precautions. The validity of the results of an experiment depends on how well such errors have been addressed. There is no standard method that can be used to determine all the sources of errors that can be encountered. It is up to the student to develop the observational and analytical skills that are required to achieve a reasonable level of accuracy.
  • This course deals with salt and water transport: applying theoretical methods for membrane processes to analyse transport in the gut. It also deals with how to observe and analyse internal body organs using non-invasive techniques and concludes by looking at various theories on the origin of living matter.

  • This is a service course by the department of Physics for students of Microbiology, Medical and Pharmaceutical sciences. Basic concepts in thermodynamics, sound and optics are treated
