Learning outcomes

Module: Fisica
-------
This course aims at giving the basic knowledge of physics, of the physical instrumentations and of the empiric studies. In particular: methodology of mechanics of bodies in the form given by Newton, with indications on atoms and molecules; the physical basis and the law of thermodynamics and energetic exchanges; the concepts and laws of electromagnetism and its applications to technology


Module: Fisica (laboratorio)
-------
The laboratory is part of the course. It aims at giving the knowledge and methods of empirical studies. In particular for: motion, fluids, energy transmission, the laws of electricity, the magnetic forces, the data analysis and treatment.
