CODE 111555 2023/2024 6 cfu anno 1 FARMACIA 11673 (LM-13.) - GENOVA FIS/07 GENOVA 2° Semester AULAWEB

## OVERVIEW

The course provides the student with the basic notions of classical physics.

## AIMS AND CONTENT

### LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to introduce students to the principles of classical physics with specific reference to medical physics and provide them with a methodological approach to solving a series of elementary problems.

### AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to provide students with the necessary basic tools for the study of fundamental phenomena of physics, from mechanics to thermodynamics, electromagnetism and optics.

Further, the course aims to provide students with a method that allows them to deal with new topics gradually encountered in subsequent studies.

## EXAMS

### EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam consists in a written examination (problem solving), compulsory for all the students. The written exam is followed by an oral examination, optional for students who obtained a mark ≥ 18/30 in the written test. The oral examination is compulsory for students who got a mark lower than 18/30.

### ASSESSMENT METHODS

The written exam consists in problem solving: students are allowed to use notes downloaded from Aulaweb. The oral exam focuses on the discussion of the written exam and on the program content. Correction of the written test, together with the oral exam, allows the teachers to judge the achievement of the learning outcomes. When these goals are not achieved, the student is invited to deepen the study and to exploit further explanations by the teacher.
