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 phenomena. Apply the simple mathematical methods for describing of the physical phenomena. Illustrate obtained knowledge in the frame of the easy applications.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


The subject follows the subject Physics I. It is devoted to the electromagnetic field, electromagnetism, and optics. In the frame of theoretical exercises the models and approaches are applied to the solution of concrete questions.
