Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Repeat the basic knowledge from grammar school physics Define and characterize the basic physical principles and laws Solve the simple exercises and discuss their results

Teaching methods



Students will deepen their knowledge of foundations of physics in mechanics, thermophysics, electricity and magnetism, optics and atomic physics. Description of physical phenomena is based on observable reality and practical experience. The aim of the course is to reinforce the knowledge of physics for the next development of physical knowledge in theoretical Physics I.
