Course Description

Code4 EXX8140
NamePhysics for Engineering
Credits5 cr
Credits in Foreign Language5 cr
ObjectivesThe general objective of the course is the introduction to the basic methods of physics. This includes the use of the SI system of units and a systematic mathematical way of analyzing physical systems.

The more specific topics of the course are the basics of temperature and thermal energy, and the Newtonian mechanics. The former includes phenomena like thermal expansion of solids, liquids and that of gases within the framework of the ideal-gas law. The student will also get to understand the energetics of the temperature changes and phase transitions.

The Newtonian mechanics is preceded by treatment of kinematics in one and two dimensions. Newtonian mechanics is about the Newton’s laws and the student will learn to apply them to fairly simple systems in one and two dimensions. The student will learn to make use of the concepts related to the definition of work done by a force, i.e. energy, energy principle, and power. After having completed the course, the student is able to apply the conservation law of linear momentum for collisions. He/she will also learn to treat impulsive forces in terms of impulse of a force.

Finally the student will learn dynamics of circular motion.
ContentInternational System of Units (SI)
Thermal Expansion
Thermal Energy
Ideal Gas Law
Mechanisms of Heat Transfer
Newton’s Laws
Work, Energy, and Power
Linear Momentum

RequirementsThe student needs to pass the exams and test during the course. Solving some problem sets may be required as well. The problem sets or some of them can be computer based.
MethodsIn lessons the theory is presented and applied into various practical cases. There will be some examples presented by the teacher but the emphasis is on the students own effort and solving given physical problems.
Grading Scale0 - 5
