OVERVIEW

 

The course of General Physics deals with the fundamental laws of Classical Physics, essential in the understanging of any application the student will deal with during ist training.

It is expected that the student be familiar with basic math, the experimental method, the main physical quantities, both fundamental and derived, and units.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course of Physics deals with the basic concepts and the fundamental laws of mechanic and electromagnetism in vacuum. A particular attention is paid to the understanding of the importance and the limits of the employed models.

TEACHING METHODS

Frontal lessons and practice.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Mechanics

Kinematics

Frames of reference. Vectors and vector operations. Material point. Motion of a material point. Trajectory. Equation of motion. Circular motion: angular velocity, centripetal acceleration, Tangential acceleration. Relative motion.

Dynamics of a material point

Forces. Newton laws. Inertial frame of reference. Friction. Central forces. Work. Kinetic Energy. Work-energy theorem. Power. Conservative forces and potential Energy. Mechanical Energy conservation. Collisions: elastic, anelastic and totally anelastic.

System of material points: internal and external forces. Center of mass (CM): motion of CM. Momentum. Momentum conservation. Angular momentum. Torque. Conservation of the Angular momentum

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

 

Written and oral exams.

The exam is unique and will deal with both the first (Mechanics, I semester) and second (Electromagntism in vacuum, II semester) module.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The written part of the exam can be acquired following one of the two methods:

 

a) Complete test

two mechanics exercises + two EM exercises

admission to the oral part of the exam only if the mark is  ≥ 12/30

available only on official dates.

The student is allowed to repeat the complete test but the previous result will then be cancelled 

If the student retires, the previous mark will be lowered by 1/30

 

b) Partial tests

two partial test on mechanics (two exercises, end of first semester) and on EM (two exercise, end of second semester)

admission to the oral part of the exam only if both marks are  ≥ 12/30

 

Oral exam

The first question will be chosen by the student among one of the topics covered in the course (either on mechanics or EM)
