Present and explain to the students the basic concepts and laws of classical physics in the field of mechanics and fluid mechanics, mechanical oscillations and waves, heat and thermodynamics, which explain many natural phenomena and processes; Demonstrate the approach to solving physical problems (tasks), which includes relating basic physical (and mathematical) knowledge and skills and the importance of discussing the obtained solution; Point out the importance of experimental work, interpretation of measurement results, and the discrepancies between theoretical and experimental results in physics by using computer simulations of some physical phenomena and by conducting experiments; In that way, students will be able to gain access to physical resources and will be prepared to further upgrade their knowledge of engineering.

Examination methods

Revision exams, written and oral exam.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. determine and differentiate between kinematic and dynamic physical quantities when describing the momentum of a particle, the system of particles, the momentum of a rigid body and fluids

2. illustrate and apply Newton's laws of mechanics and laws of energy conservation, momentum and angular momentum to the real processes and phenomena

3. interpret physical quantites of thermodynamics and thermal laws by means of kinetic molecular theory

4. interpret the dependence between physical quantities presented by mathematical relations and graphs

5. specify and apply basic laws of physics concerning mechanics of particles and rigid bodies, fluids, oscillations and waves, heat and thermodynamics, geometric and wave optics to solve simple problem tasks

6. interpret the results of experimental evaluation of basic laws of physics referring to mechanics, mechanics of fluids, heat and thermodynamics, oscillation and waves, geometric and wave opticsptics

7. explain the differences between theoretical results and the results of experimental research in physics
