Hi All,
	I am a teaching assistant in the Physics Department at UCLA and I am 
teaching a lab to life science majors.  I sense there is a general attitude
among my students like the following "physics is not going to be of use to me
in my future profession".  I would like to be able to give these students a few
examples of where physics is useful in, for instance, biology.  Can anyone out
there give me a few examples where vectors are used in biology?  How about
simple things like conservation of energy?  I realize that this probably isn't
the most common thing among biologists, but perhaps someone has given some
thought to this.
