PHYS 101 – Physics I
PHYS 101 – Physics I; Weekly hours: 2+1, ECTS: 5
In this course we aim to give an introduction to classical physics. The students will be able to learn about the kinematics of systems, Newton’s Laws to describe the dynamics of systems, work and energy, conservation of energy, mechanics of fluids, and the wave motion. The curriculum includes the following themes: Physics and measurement, motion in one dimension, motion in two and three dimension, the Newton laws of motion, Circular motion, Work and kinetic energy, Potential energy and Conservation of energy, Linear momentum and collisions, Rotation of rigid objects, Angular momentum, Static equilibrium, Oscillatory motion, The law of gravity, Fluid Mechanics, Wave motion, and Sound waves.
