Description

Version: 2.0 start 01 February 2021
 

Short description

In the first part of Physics 2 we deal with basic rigid body mechanics before switching to the basic thermodynamics of ideal gases, heat and entropy transport phenomena and thermodynamic cycles for the second part of the semester.

Learning objectives (competencies)

Objectives Competences Taxonomy levels
The students will be able to:    
apply the basics of rigid body mechanics to solve simple problems related to transportation and aviation engineering F, M K1 - K3
apply the basics of thermodynamics 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 rigid body mechanics and thermodynamics (momentum, angular momentum, entropy, 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
