Credits: 9
Language: English
Course description
The first part of the Physics course covers the fundamentals of classical mechanics, fluid dynamics and basic concepts of thermodynamics. The principles and the physical laws that are studied in this course are the basis for any engineering application and all modern technologies. This is a basic course aimed to give some of the fundamental knowledge needed to obtain the engineering degree. Several mathematical tools are needed to attend to this course, but what is mainly described is the real world that surrounds us and the lessons are aimed to highlight the causal relationship between the observed physical phenomena. In the second part of this course of Physics, lessons are devoted to the phenomenology of electromagnetism: theory and applications. The final lessons are focused on the geometrical optics. Electromagnetism is the basis of the vast majority of the physical phenomena of everyday life, except the gravitational interaction. The consistency of the bodies, not less of their electrical properties in the strict sense, the chemical phenomena (neglecting the quantum mechanics), the colors and many other properties are indeed electromagnetic in nature. All this highlights the importance of this subject matter within the course.
Prerequisites
The student must have a good knowledge of the typical contents of Calculus courses. in particular: derivatives, integrals, vectors, operators of gradient, divergence and curl.
Objectives
Regarding the first part, the course aims to provide students with tools needed to a understanding of the motion of solid bodies and fluids, both in the kinematics and dynamics, and to solve problems related with the heat transfer between systems constituted by a large number of components (thermodynamics). At the end of the course the student will know and understand the properties of simple ideal motions, and he will have acquired the concept of force, momentum, angular momentum, energy; inertia and moment of inertia. Will be able to understand the essential aspects of the interaction between different bodies, both in direct contact with the mediation of the gravitational field. At the end of the first part of the course, students will have acquired the essential methodology to be able to solve simple problems and set the resolution of more complex problems. On the other hand, the objective of the second part of the course is to provide students with a quantitative understanding of phenomena related to electrical and magnetic properties of matter and to the propagation of electromagnetic waves. At the end of the course the student will be able to correctly manage the electromagnetic phenomena for several applications of the modern technologies such as electronic circuits, engines, radio transmission antennas and simple optical systems.

Exercises
The exercises will consist of simplified applications of real phenomena and of laws studied in the course. The focus will be on the methodological aspects and the student should try to learn the procedure to manage general classes of problems beyond the "recipes " to solve single problems.
