Physics (FUN131)


This course covers full range of introductory topics in Physics giving theoretical and practical background in the field. Students completing introductory Physics courses are expected to show a mastery of basic material, both in terms of concepts and problem-solving skills, especially in mechanics, thermodynamics, electricity and magnetism, optics, all needed for continuing success in life science disciplines or engineering or physics.

Aim of the course

To provide students with knowledge about classical and modern physics and form their practical abilities to apply fundamental nature laws.

Learning outcomes

  • Have a working knowledge of classical mechanics and its application to "standard" problems such as linear and rotational kinematics and dynamics.
  • Have a working knowledge of basics of oscillations, waves and sound.
  • Have a working knowledge of basic thermodynamic principles and relation with molecular kinetic theory.
  • Have a working knowledge of basic electrostatics, electrodynamics, and magnetism.
  • Have a working knowledge of atomic material structure of solids, liquids and gasses and radiation interaction with matter.
