* can define and explain the most important concepts within basic classical mechanics, fluid mechanics, wave physics, and chemistry

* is familiar with relevant applications in physics and chemistry


The candidate can

* formulate and solve, with analytical and numerical methods, mathematical models for given problems related to classical mechanics, fluid mechanics, wave physics, and chemistry

* associate variables, used in idealized models, with real quantities in physics and chemistry

* conduct measurements, and analyze, interpret, and document the results

* perform calculations with quantities and units in the SI system, and is able to make transformations between different unit systems

* describe atoms and bonds between atoms

* find and use data from relevant tables

General competence:

The candidate

* can motivate and justify professional choices and convey this to others in terms of basic physics and chemistry

* participate actively in group work and professional discussions

Learning methods and activities

Lectures, exercises, laboratory work. Expected work load in the course is 300 hours. (Lectures: ca 75 hours. Exercises: ca 25 hours. Laboratory work: ca 20 hours. Self-study: ca 180 hours.)Compulsory activities: 6 of 8 physics assignments; 2 of 4 chemistry assignments and a report from laboratory work must be handed in and approved for exam admission.
