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



Subject is outlined as a subject of theoretical base of the technical bachelor study. Students get deep and broad knowledge in all parts of classical physics in continuity of the topics discussed in Physics I course, so that the attained knowledge can be used for deeper understanding of the topics of the technical subjects. The Physics II course utilizes differential and integral calculus of the one variable functions and vector algebra. The aim of the course is to complete the knowledge of classical physics for further study necessary in master programmes.
