Contribution of Course to Meeting the Professional Component Engineering Topics: 70% Math and Science: 30% Biomechanics aims to explain the mechanics of life and living. From molecules to organism, everything must obey the law of mechanics. (Fung 1990) Those laws which are just mathematical definitions (say, fundamental law of mechanics - second Newton's law ), …… - are absolutely correct (simply by definition). They are extremely useful - because they can not be violated nor
