AbstractIntroduction to the concepts and tools in physics with the help of demonstration experiments: mechanics of point-like and ridged bodies, periodic motion and mechanical waves.
ObjectiveThe concepts and tools in physics, as well as the methods of an experimental science are taught. The student should learn to identify, communicate and solve physical problems in his/her own field of science.
ContentMechanics (motion, Newton's laws, work and energy, conservation of momentum, rotation, gravitation, fluids)
Periodic Motion and Waves (periodic motion, mechanical waves, acoustics).
Lecture notesThe lecture follows the book "Physics" by Paul A. Tipler.
LiteraturePaul A. Tipler and Gene P. Mosca, Physics (for Scientists and Engineers), W. H. Freeman and Company
Prerequisites / NoticePrerequisites: Mathematics I & II

Typesession examination
Language of examinationGerman
RepetitionThe performance assessment is offered every session. Repetition possible without re-enrolling for the course unit.
Admission requirementPhysik I wird zusammen mit Physik II in einer gemeinsamen 180-minütigen schriftlichen Prüfung nach dem Frühjahrssemester geprüft.
Mode of examinationoral 25 minutes
Additional information on mode of examinationIn besonderen Ausnahmefällen kann Physik I mündlich geprüft werden. Ob eine gerechtfertigte Ausnahme vorliegt entscheidet der Dozent. Eine mündliche Prüfung von Physik I ist in den ersten zwei Semesterwochen beim Dozenten zu beantragen.
