AbstractThis course will cover the basic topics in Physics and will show/display/explain with a variety of experiments the most important physical effects. The course will address classical as well as modern physics, and the interplay between basic research and applications.
ObjectiveThis lecture aims to provide an experimental understanding of basic physics concepts, both classical as well as modern. Whenever possible the lecture should allow establishing a link between theory and applications. The overall goals should be achieved via demonstration experiments in the lecture hall and focused exercise classes.
