Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Collect the basic principles and laws of the chosen part of the classical physics Describe, clarify and interpret the particular natural phenomenaApply the simple mathematical methods for describing of the physical phenomena Illustrate obtained knowledge in the frame of the easy applications

Teaching methods



Students get broader knowledge of mechanics, oscillations, waves and acoustics. The secondary school mathematics and basic knowledge of vectors, differential and integral calculus are used for presentation of basic physical laws and relationships. The description of physical phenomena and laws is based on the observed reality as well as practical experience. The aim of the subject is to fix basic knowledge of the mentioned physical spheres being followed by further broadening of physical knowledge in theoretical subject Physics II and technical subjects of the study.
