Objectives
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING: LECTURES ARE INTENDED TO GIVE BASIC KNOWLEDGE ON CLASSICAL MECHANICS, THERMODYNAMICS, FLUID DYNAMICS, ELECTROMAGNETISM, OPTICS, AND ACUSTICS. A HISTORICAL REVIEW OF ALL TOPICS IS ALSO PROVIDED.

ABILITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
TO IDENTIFY THE SCIENTIFIC STRUCTURING CONCEPTS AND THEIR CONNECTIONS, AND PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH SUITABLE MEANS TO ILLUSTRATE, IN A SIMPLE AND RIGOROUS WAY, ELEMENTARY EXPERIMENTS IN MECHANICS, FLUID DYNAMICS, THERMODYNAMICS, ELECTROMAGNETISM AND OPTICS.
Prerequisites
BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF HIGH-SCHOOL MATHEMATICS IS REQUIRED.

Teaching Methods
THE COURSE CONSISTS OF 48 HOURS (8 CFU) OF LECTURES. IT WILL PROVIDE BASIC KNOWLEDGE ON CLASSICAL MECHANICS, THERMODYNAMICS, FLUID DYNAMICS, ELECTROMAGNETISM, OPTICS, AND ACOUSTICS.
Verification of learning
THE EXAM CONSISTS OF A WRITTEN AND AN ORAL PART. THE WRITTEN PART CONSISTS OF SOLVING AND DISCUSSING TEN PROBLEMS ON THE TOPICS STUDIED. IN THIS PART THE STUDENTS IS ALLOWED TO SHOW THAT HE/SHE HAS ACQUIRED SUFFICIENT KNOWLEDGE ON PHYSICS PRINCIPLE. THE ORAL PART CONSISTS IN THE ILLUSTRATION OF A TOPIC, SELECTED IN ADVANCE BY THE INSTRUCTOR. THE FINAL GRADE IS, IN GENERAL, THE AVERAGE OF THE POINTS GIVEN IN THE WRITTEN AND IN THE ORAL PART.
