Present and explain the basic concepts and laws of classical and modern physics in the field of fluid mechanics, heat, thermodynamics, mechanical and electromagnetic vibrations and waves and substance structures 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 emphasising the importance of discussing the solution of the problems. Point out the importance of experimental work, interpretation of measurement results and the discrepancies between theoretical and experimental results in physics by the use of computer simulations of some physical phenomena and by conducting experiments. In this way, students will be able to use physical resources, will be prepared for further upgrading of engineering knowledge and continue education in modern science and technology.

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. distinguish kinematic and dynamic physical quantities in the description of motion of single particles, a large number of particles and rigid bodies and fluids

2. interpret Newton's laws of mechanics and laws of conservation of energy, momentum and angular momentum

3. distinguish thermodynamic physical quantities and explain laws of thermodynamics based on kinetic molecular theory

4. discuss the dependence between physical dimensions represented by mathematical relations and graphical representations

5. integrate basic physical concepts and laws in the field of mechanics of single particles and rigid bodies, fluid mechanics, oscillations and waves, heat and thermodynamics, and electromagnetic phenomena, and structure of matter when solving simple problem

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

7. explain the differences between theoretical results and experiment results
