Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Provide summary of basic physical facts about bodies, solid bodies, particles and their interaction Collect the basic principles and laws of the selected parts of the classical physics (mechanics, kinetic theory of molecules) Solve simple and more complicated exercises and discuss their results

Teaching methods



Physics I is the first part of the basic physics course that provides comprehensive overview of basic knowledge about physical bodies, particles and their interaction. This course covers the mechanics of particles and rigid solids, mechanical oscillations and waves, molecular physics, kinetic theory of gases and thermodynamics.
