Learning outcomes

This course aims at giving the basic knowledge of physics, the physical instruments and the empirical analysis. In particular: the methodologies of mechanics in Newton's form, with elements of atoms and molecules; the laws of thermodynamics and energetic exchanges; the concepts and laws of electromognetism and its technolgical applications.

Syllabus

Velocity, acceleration, force. Newton law. Motion. Gravitation.
Fluids and their laws. Calorimetry, temperatura, gas laws. The principles of thermodynamics.
Charges and electric forces. POtential, electric field. Electric current. Electric circuits. Magnetic field. Magnetic forces. Atoms and molecules. Electromagnetic waves. Variable current circuits. The laws of optics. Refraction, reflection, interference and diffraction. Geometric optics

Assessment methods and criteria
