Learning outcomes of the course unit

To obtain the theoretic knowledges, examples solving and practical skill and habits in these fields of physics: waves and acoustics, thermics, thermal conduction, electricity.

Prerequisites

Knowledge physics and mathematics of bachelor study.

Co-requisites

Applied mathematics: vectors, derivatives, integrals and multiple integrals, second order homogeneous differential equations with constant coefficients.

Recommended optional programme components

no

Not applicable.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations. Rules for Studies and Examinations. The method is based on a series of lectures (two two-lesson lectures per each week) and laboratory exercises (two-lesson measurement per each week). In addition, students have to solve a series of numerical problems. The solutions of these problems are checked by the teachers in the laboratory exercises.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Minimum requirements
The student´s condition for gaining a credit is measurement of nine
laboratory excercises and creating lab reports on-the-fly. Further,
students must calculate twenty examples given by the teacher. The last
condition is a successful pass of the final test in the form of examples.
The exam consists of written part, which contains four examples and oral
part with four theoretical questions. All topics come from the lectures.
Both parts must be successfully fin
