Learning outcomes

The course aims at giving the basic knowledge of physics, of the physical instruments and of the empirical research. In particular: the methods of the machanics of bodies in its classical version, with mention to atoms and molecules; the physical bases of thermodynamics and of the energetic exchanges; the concepts of electromagnetism and its applications to technology
