After completing the course, the student should be able to
account for the meaning of Newton's equations and solve model problems based on these.
define basic quantities in electrostatics and solve problems in electrostatics of relevance for chemistry.
account for the basic concepts and the relationships in wave physics and apply these on model problems.
discuss the basic relationships in fluid mechanics and solve related model problems of relevance within chemistry.
Mechanics: Newton's equations, linear momentum, angular momentum, work, energy, rotational motion. Electrostatics: Coulomb's law, electric field strength and potential, electric dipole. Capacitors, electrostatic energy. Periodic movement, vibrations. Basic wave physics, diffraction, interference. Basic fluid Mechanics.
Lectures, problem solving sessions and laboratory work.
Written tests are organised at the end of the course and correspond 4 credits. The laboratory sessions correspond to 1 credit. All subparts must be passed in order to receive a pass grade on the course. The final grade corresponds to a joining of the weighted average of the written examination and the laboratory sessions.
