General course objectives:
With mechanical physics as a starting point, the course aims to strengthen the students abilities in numerical and symbolic calculations. The most important physical notions are presented and discussed, and are practices theoretically through exercises. There is emphasis on understanding, such that the students are able to analyse and solve simple physical and technical problems.
|A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:|
- Apply the kinematic concepts position, velocity, and acceleration, and recognize important types of motion such as projectile motion and circular motion.
- Identify forces and sketch free body diagrams for simple mechanical systems consisting of particles.
- Apply Newton's laws to simple mechanical systems consisting of particles.
- Compute the work and impulse of a force and apply the work-energy theorem to simple mechanical systems.
- Formulate the principles of conservation of momentum, and mechanical energy and apply these principles to simple mechanical systems.
- Compute electrostatic forces, fields, and potentials in connection with simple and/or symmetric charge distributions.
- Describe the capacitance in connection with electrical energy and describe the influence of dielectrica on capaticance.
- Describe the structure of electrical filters and compute dust particles movement in electrical filter and dimensions of electrical filters.
- Analyse a problem, plan and carry out a solution, and control the results.
