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



The lecture is the first part of basic course. This course offer summary main physical knowledge about electricity and magnetism, oscillations and wave motions, geometrical optics, introduction to special theory of relativity. It lay emphasis on make sense of primary fundament and method solution of physical problems. Theoretical practices have the same thematic with lecture and it is range to apply theoretical knowledge in concrete problems.
