Short description

Physics 1 will first introduce you into the basic scientific methodology and the related mathematical tools by analyzing dynamical processes from the fields of hydro- and electrodynamics. The second part of the course focuses on Newtonian mechanics and basic fluid-dynamics.

Learning objectives (competencies)

Objectives Competences Taxonomy levels
The students will be able to:    
apply the basics of Newtonian mechanics and fluid-dynamics to solve simple problems related to transportation and aviation engineering F, M K1 - K3
develop balance equations for extensive physical properties stemming from the fields of hydro- and electrodynamics as well as linear mechanics (mass, volume, charge, momentum, energy) for defined systems and use calculus to solve those in simple cases. F, M K3
develop and experimentally validate models for simple dynamic systems. F, M K3
recognize and transfer analogies between different fields of physics. F, M K4
