In this course we study the basic concepts of classical mechanics. The course starts from kinematics and dynamics of a single particles and then moves to more complex system of particles and to the dynamics of a rigid body.
1) reach solid understanding of the basic concepts of classical mechanics;
2) develop problemsolving skills in the context of mechanics;
3) acquire the ability to understand and interpret physical phenomena, exploiting both mathematical tools and arguments based on dimensional analysis and order of magnitude approach;
4) understand and recognise the regime of applicability of physical laws.
All topics are discussed with examples and complemented with problems and exercises.

The exam consists of a written test and an oral one about the whole program of General Physics (module I and II). Students that attend the lectures can take intermediate written tests.
The written part of the exam consist of four problems. The first two concern the first module (mechanics), while the second two the second one (electromagnetism). The exercises aim to verify the student’s understanding of the topic as well as their problemsolving skills. The intermediate exams instead consist of two problems each.
The oral exam consists of simple problems or theory questions that aim to verify the student’s knowledge about the various topics of the course. Examples of these questions can be found on aulaweb.
In order to stimulate continuous study, attendance of the lectures and active participation, there will be quizzes during the lectures. If they take part to these quizzes, the students can acquire bonus points.
