Course content

The course consists of two parts: introductory mechanics, and electricity and magnetism.

Introductory mechanics

  • Measurements, units, significant digits
  • Kinematics, position, velocity, acceleration, equations of motion for constant accelerations. 3D motion, projectile motion, circular motion.
  • Forces and Newton's laws. Tension, spring forces, friction and drag.
  • Mechanical energy and work, conservative and non-conservative forces, energy conservation, the work-energy theorem, power.
  • Momentum, conservation of momentum, linear collisions.
  • Rotational kinematics and dynamics, equations of motion for constant angular acceleration, connection between linear and rotational motion, moments of inertia, Steiner's theorem, torque, Newton's second law for rotational motion, work and power for rotational motion.
  • Rolling motion.

Electricity and magnetism

  • Electrical charge (Coulomb's law), electric fields and field lines.
  • Electric potential, electric potential energy og potential differences.
  • Capacitors and capacitance
  • Current and resistance, electric conduction in metals, resistivity and resistance, field description of Ohm's law, electric energy and power
  • DC circuits, electromotive force, resistors in series and parallell. Kicrhoff's laws, RC circuits.
  • Magnetic forces and magnetic fields, magnetic forces on moving charges and currents in magnetic fields, torque on current loops.
  • Sources of magnetic fields, Biot-Savart's law, magnetic field around a long, straight conductor, magnetic forces between parallell currents.
  • Induction, Faraday's law, Lenz' law, induced electromotive force.

Learning outcome

Knowledge

The student

  • can show knowledge of theories and concepts in classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism.can define and explain central terms from classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism.
  • has knowledge of the laws of physics and how they are used to model observable phenomena, and be aware of a theory's domain of validity.
  • is aware of relevant applications of physics.knows how to use relevant digital tools.

Skills

The student is able to

  • interpret problems in classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism using etablished physical models, and solve these using analytical and numerical methods.
  • identify variables in idealized models with real physical quantities.
  • perform calculations with quantities and units in the SI system, and perform unit conversions.
  • measure, analyze, interpret and document results.
  • explain basic physical phenomena.
  • have basic laboratory skills, including reporting and presenting results

General competence

The student is able to

  • Make reasoned decisions and communicate these to others by using basic concepts from physics.
  • Participate in group activities in physics and communicate physics orally and in writing to others using relevant physics terminology.
  • Describe the role of physics in technological advancement and general development of society. Have insight into environmental and ethical challenges in the present and in the future.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures, exercises, laboratory work. Expected workload in the course is 225 hours (Lectures: Approx. 60 hours. Exercises: Approx. 20 hours. Laboratory work: Approx. 20 hours. Self studies: Approx. 125 hours).
