I have no idea... Most pre-meds I knew had to take the intro physics classes that the physics majors did. You typi...

A story of my own. In high school physics, we were talking about the lens equation: 1/f = 1/d_i + 1/d_o; f = focal length, d_i = image distance, d_o = object distance. Specifically, we were talking about solving the equation for f. Some students wanted to say f = d_i + d_o. The teacher pointed out ...
