Hours of instruction:

Weekly: four hours of lectures + two hours of exercises + three hours of labwork (4+2+3)

Goals:

The goal of this course is to help students acquire knowledge of the selected areas of physics and to show them through examples how that knowledge is applied in chemistry. Acquiring fundamental knowledge and skills needed to understand specialized courses in the subsequent years of the studies. Developing students’ ability to independently formulate and solve physics problems and to correctly interpret the obtained data and results. The goal of practical classes is to teach students how to use some simple measuring instruments which they will use in their future professional work.

Outcome:

Acquired fundamental knowledge and skills in physics needed for understanding specialized courses in the subsequent years of the studies.

Teaching methods:

Lectures, experimental exercises, theoretical/calculation exercises, term papers, projects.

Extracurricular activities:

Homework assignments, completing experimental exercises, finding information necessary for term papers, projects and information regarding the course subject matter (books, the Internet, etc.).

Lectures:

11 points (4 hours a week)

Syllabus:

  1. Introduction
  2. Kinematics
  3. Dynamics
  4. Gravitation
  5. Energy
  6. Multi-particle systems
  7. Oscillations
  8. Wave motion
  9. Fluid statics
  10. Fluid dynamics
  11. Fundamentals of thermal physics
  12. Electrostatic interaction
  13. Electric potential and voltage
  14. Direct electric current
  15. Magnetic interaction in vacuum
  16. Magnetic properties of materials
  17. Electromagnetic induction
  18. Alternating current
  19. Relationship between electric field and magnetic field
  20. Geometrical optics
  21. Fundamentals of atomic physics

Within this category, a student can be assigned a maximum of 4 points for being active and participating in the lectures and additional 7 points for writing up a term paper or doing a project. Students choose between writing a term paper or doing a project during the academic year. They select a topic from the list showing the units of study within this course. Students write term papers individually, while they can do projects in small groups (2 to 3 students). The maximum length of a term paper or a project should be 8 pages and it has to contain: an introduction, a theoretical/experimental part and a conclusion.

Exercises:

4 points (2 hours a week)

Labwork:

21 points (3 hours a week)

Syllabus:

  1. Physical measurement and measuring instruments.
  2. Determining the density of solid and liquid bodies.
  3. Determining gravity acceleration.
  4. Testing Bernoulli's equation for water.
  5. Determining the coefficient of viscosity.
  6. Testing Charles’ law for air.
  7. Ohm’s law for direct current.
  8. Measuring resistance using the Wheatstone bridge.
  9. Electrolysis.
  10. Ohm’s law for alternating current.
  11. Spectral analysis.
  12. Determining the energy of alpha particles.
  13. Determining the linear attenuation coefficient of gamma radiation for lead.

When students finish experimental exercises (the second or third week of January), they take a test which carries 7 points.

Colloquia:

22 points

Remarks:

There are two tests organized during the semester and each of them carries 11 points. The tests are of theoretical nature, they are very short and most questions are multiple-choice questions. The first test covers the areas of mechanics and thermodynamics and it takes place in mid-November, while the second test takes place in January and covers the areas of electromagnetism, optics and atomic physics.

Written exam:

21 points

Oral exam:

21 points
