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.
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.

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