Department assigned to the subject: Department of Physics

Type: Basic Core
ECTS Credits: 6.0 ECTS


Branch of knowledge: Engineering and Architecture

Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Mathematics and Physics corresponding to the two sciences courses of the Spanish high school level.
Acquire the knowledge of basic physical phenomena related with engineering. Understanding the mathematical models involved in general physics. Understanding and using the scientific method, and scientific language. Development of reasoning strategies and techniques for analysing and solving problems (PO a). Analysis and interpretation of experimental data (PO b.). Dealing with laboratory instruments (PO b).
Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
Topics covered: Particle kinematics. Particle dynamics. Coulomb¿s law. Electric field. Gauss law. Electric potential. Conductors. Capacitors, dielectrics and field energy. Magnetic forces and magnetic field. Sources of the magnetic field and magnetic materials. Faraday's induction law. Wave propagation, acustic and electromagnetic waves.
Learning activities and methodology
Online lectures on the specific topics together with a simple guide for problem solving. Provide a theoretical background on physics. (3 ECTS). Recitation classes, discussion of specific concepts previously addressed, and solving assigned problems. (3 ECTS). Practical laboratoy sessions, the pupils must carry out experimental meassurements and analyse the results. As in previous years, there will be group tutorials scheduled at the beginning of the course after discussing the proposal with the students. These tutorials will take place once the students' school hours finished, usually from 19.00 to 20.00.
