# Physics A 1200-1FIZA1

The aim of the course is to teach the students of chemistry about the fundamental laws of physics in the field of classic mechanics. The course contains the lecture and classes with calculus. The lecture includes the demonstrations of experiments and theoretical explanation of physical phenomena.

The contents of the course covers the following subjects:

- Vector description of motion

- Fundamental concepts of kinematics, kinds of motion- Newton’s laws of dynamics

- Mutual interactions , the law of conservation of momentum

- Work and energy, the law of conservation of energy, conservative forces

- Forces versus motion paths

- Motion in the central field, angular momentum

- Relativity of motion, inertial and noninertial frames of references

- Many body systems, mass center, collisions, decays

- Rigid body dynamics, moment of inertia

- The law of conservation of angular momentum

- Harmonic forces, harmonic oscillator model

- Normal vibrations of molecules

- Mechanic waves

The classes with calculus are the mathematical illustration to the lecture. The students are taught how to solve the problems, discussed during the lecture, by use of the known mathematical apparatus. The classes take place in small groups of students, which solve the tasks together.

Lecture + classes = 60 hours

Tests, which take place on Thursdays at 17-19 =10 hours

Domestic work 2-4 hours/week = 30-60 hours

Getting ready to tests and exam = 60 hours

Together = 160-190 hours

## Learning outcomes

The student will:

KNOWLEDGE:

1. know how to describe and explain physical phenomena taught during the lecture

2. be able to understand the laws of nature

3. and to describe them in the language of mathematics

ABILITIES:

1. be able to use his knowledge in physics in his work as a chemist

2. be able to formulate problems in physics and to solve them

3. interpret the laws of physics and draw the appropriate conclusions

4. be able to perceive the casual relations in nature

ATTITUDE:

1. cooperate with other students while solving the problems together

2. ask questions dealing with physics

3. explain a problem in physics to his colleagues

## Assessment criteria

Credit classes for a grade on the basis of :

a) activity during the classes, which can be checked on the basis of oral answers or written short tests at the beginning of the classes

b) four 1.5-hour long written tests on parts of the material, and for the students who do not pass these tests, the final test on the whole material.

The condition of passing the classes is to obtain 50% of the points from four tests, with a minimum of 30% of points from each of them. Positive grade at physics classes is required for admission to the exam

Credit the course:- written exam in form of one choice test, in which explanation of answers is demanded. The condition of passing the exam is to obtain 50% of the points from the answers.
