AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to provide students with tools for addressing the phenomena of classical mechanics and thermodynamic and for resolving exercises and problems, with particular attention to topics of practical and applicative interest. In particular, the aim is to train students in the scientific method at the base of classical physics, and appropriately characterize the observables and the quantities in play and the laws governing their evolution. Students will be able to solve problems of mechanics and thermodynamics of growing complexity, using the mathematical tools they learn during the year.

Teaching methods

Frontal lessons. Exercises. The material used during the lessons is provided to students via Aulaweb and also in paper form, one copy per student. Several exercises are also provided, as well as examples of written exams of previous years

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Introduction: physical quantities, units of measurements, uncertainties.

Mechanics: cinematic laws of the motion of a material point; dynamics and forces. Complex systems. Laws of gravitation.

EXAMS

Exam description

Written and oral exams. The written exams proposed a set of problems and exercises of varying difficulty covering the topics dealt with during the year. Oral exams typically last 20 to 40 minutes with questions aimed at verifying the understanding of the laws of mechanics and thermodynamics. This structure allows the examining commission to evaluate the level of knowledge reached by students. The final note is the average of the written and oral exams.

Assessment methods

To help students evaluate their preparation during the semesters, simulations of exams without notes assigned are organized, with proposed exercises similar to those of the real exams. At the end of each semester, facultative written half-exams are held
