Description

Version: 2.0 start 01 February 2020
 

Short description

Physics 3 addresses wave phenomena. Physical and mathematical descriptions are developed for mechanical waves. Electromagnetic waves and electromagnetic phenomena are discussed. Different approaches to optical phenomena are covered. The quantum mechanical description of matter and light is shown.

Learning objectives (competencies)

Objectives Competences Taxonomy levels
Students are able to use qualitative and quantitative descriptions of waves (mechanical, electromagnetic, light) for engineering purposes. F 1-3
Students are able to implement and use numerical methods and computer simulations for exploring wave phenomena and to apply them to engineering applications. M, F 2-5
Students are able to trace electromagnetical phenomena back to the Maxwells' equations. F 3-4
Students are able to choose an appropriate description of optical phenomena and for atoms and the interaction of light with matter. They understand the fundamental concepts of quantum-, atomic- and nuclear physics needed for the specilisation in biomedical engineering and the photonics profile. F 1-3
