Some Vocations and the Branch of Physics that Applies to them
Anesthetics: Electricity + Mass Transfer(Fluids – Diffusion Rates)
Cardiology/Cardiac Surgery: Fluid Mechanics. Electrical Models of Pumping
Ear, Nose + Throat: Pressure Differentials, Fluid Flow
Endocrinology: Delivery Systems, Mass + Heat Transfer (Homeostasis)
Nephrology/Gastric Systems: Fluid Flow, Electrical Models of Filtration
Neurology/Neuroscience: Electrostatics, Current Flow
Orthopedics: Mechanics (Stress, Strain, Torque, Center of Gravity, Equilibrium)
Plastics: Properties of Materials (Physics based- stress, elasticity etc)
Respiratory: Pressure Systems (Gas Laws), Fluid Flow
Sports Medicine – Biomechanics (Physics)
Construction/Commercial Real Estate – Statics
Tort Law – Slip and Fall, Coefficient of Friction
Medical Malpractice – Take your pick from ‘Medicine’ above.
Patent Law – Many Patent Lawyers have an engineering background. The physics helps understand the technology.
Motor Vehicle Accidents – Kinematics + Dynamics
Orthodontics is built on the Principles of Dynamics. Also the operation of the Jaw, grinding, biting are all concepts that lend themselves to a physics analysis.
Ergonomics – Often Uses mechanics, optics principles
Market Movement – Has been analyzed using an application of the physics concepts of Gravity (Market driver), Friction (Market Drag) and other factors. Useful in the derivatives market. Rational Expectations have also been looked at as friction forces. I know it sounds bizarre.
