Learning outcomes The objective of this curricular unit is that students acquire theoretical and practical knowledge of physical concepts useful in Biochemistry, notably concerning mechanics and electromagnetism.
A student completing this course should be able to identify, interpret and analyze elementary physical phenomena involving classical mechanics and classical electromagnetism.
Syllabus 1) Mechanics:
Kinematics in one dimension.
Kinematics in three dimensions.
Relative motion.
Newton motion laws.
Collisions and linear momentum conservation
Work and energy.
Rotational dynamics.

2) Electromagnetism:
Electric interaction.
Magnetic interaction.
Electric circuits.
Electromagnetism Maxwell laws.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The course is structured with theoretical classes – T (exposition of the subjects of the course and presentation
of small practical examples and computational simulations) and practical classes – TP (application of theoretical
concepts to solve practical problems).
- Evaluation will consists in two theoretical and practical tests during the semester.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
