Course detail

Proseminar in Physics III

FSI-0FOAcad. year: 2017/2018

Proseminar in physics III complements the lecture General physics III given within the frame of the speciality Physical engineering. Students taking this seminar can practise and acquire basic knowledge of oscillations and waves in suitable form to be able to solve some physical- and technical problems. These abilities are necessary to understand fundamentals of many technical branches.
Oscillations. Kinematics, dynamics, energy. Dumped oscillator. Forced oscillations and resonance. Anharmonic oscillations.
Waves. Wave equation. Superposition and interference. Sound- and electromagnetic waves. Optics.

Learning outcomes of the course unit
