Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Description of the basic physical phenomena, basic physical laws of general physics, applications of the physics laws in technique, solving of simple mathematical problems, especially problems suitable for the automotive industry.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The goal of this subject is to obtain general overview about basic physical laws for the bachelor study at the technical university. It deals with mechanics, thermodynamics of perfect gases, physical fields, particularly gravitational field a electrostatic field, basis of optics.

Compulsory literature:
