General Physics I

Code 9088
Year 1
Semester S1
ECTS Credits 6
Workload T(30H)/TP(30H)
Scientific area Physics
Entry requirements Domain of the essential contents of Physics that are contained in several manuals destined to the high school education. Knowledge of elementary mathematical calculus.
Learning outcomes To develop the student's knowledge of concepts, models and physical laws necessary for the interpretation of observed phenomena at various levels of biological organization and intrinsic to various laboratory techniques. It also seeks to provide a basic training in Classical Physics.
At the end of this curricular unit, the student must be able to better understand the world around, their constituent parts and the interactions between them. Develop skills that emphasize understanding of concepts and ideas into play, without giving up the rigor of mathematical analysis. Express ideas in a reasoned manner, through oral and written communication. Develop group work skills. Assume the responsibility for their learning.
Syllabus 1. Introduction of key concepts of Newtonian Mechanics, mathematical formulation of these concepts and training of the students ability in its use in new situations; 2.Understanding of the fundamental properties of the different states of matter important in all sciences, in engineering, and in medicine; 3. Study of wave phenomena, in which a large number of physical systems can be successfully modeled; 4. Fundamental concepts of Electricity and Magnetism, to better understand the operating principle of biological systems and some instruments.
