|Abstract||Introduction 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.|
|Objective||The 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.|
|Content||Mechanics (motion, Newton's laws, work and energy, conservation of momentum, rotation, gravitation, fluids)|
Periodic Motion and Waves (periodic motion, mechanical waves, acoustics).
|Lecture notes||The lecture follows the book "Physics" by Paul A. Tipler.|
|Literature||Paul A. Tipler and Gene P. Mosca, Physics (for Scientists and Engineers), W. H. Freeman and Company|
|Prerequisites / Notice||Prerequisites: Mathematics I & II|
