    OVERVIEW

    The course deals with the study of General Physics. It is divided into two modules. The first module, which takes place in the first semester of the first year, is dedicated to the study of the mechanics of the material point and of the rigid body. The second module, which takes place in the second semester of the first year, is dedicated to the study of electromagnetism in vacuum.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Acquisition of the fundamental concepts of general physics and ability to solve simple problems.

    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    The exam consistes in a written test and an oral examination

    Written exam: the written test consists in the solution of four problems: two problems of Mechanics and two of Electromagnetism; duration of the test 4 hours; it is not allowed to consult books or notes, but only the form used during the year (downloadable from the AulaWeb page)

    The student must choose whether to deliver:

    - within 2 hours the solution of the test of Mechanics or Electromagnetism, or

    - within four hours the solution of both tests

     

    The results of the writings for the individual parts are considered valid for one year (up to the same session of the following academic year).

     

    Oral exam:

    1. students who obtain in the two partial tests during the course, or at the exam sessions, an average of 15/30, with a minimum of 12/30 in each test are admitted to the oral exam.

    2. The oral examination consists of an interview concerning the mechanical part and the electromagnetism part. Should one of the two interviews be considered insufficient, the oral exam will be considered as globally invalid and the student will have to repeat it in full (the written tests will still be held valid).

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The written exam will evaluate the ability to: i) interpret the text of the proposed exercise and outline the problem; ii) identify the physical laws involved and the related equations to be applied; iii) quantitatively resolve the exercise; iv) evaluate the reasonableness of the numerical result obtained.
    In order to evaluate the written test, the following parameters will be taken into account: the correct setting of the exercise, the correctness of the literal solution obtained, the congruence of the numerical solution obtained.
    The oral exam will allow to ascertain the ability to: i) introduce the requested topic with language properties; ii) describe simple applications of the physical laws under consideration.
    In order to evaluate the oral exam, the following parameters will be taken into account: the level of understanding of the topic, the quality of the presentation, the correct use of the specialist vocabulary, the capacity for critical reasoning.
