TEACHING MATERIALS AULAWEB

OVERVIEW

The Applied Physics course consists of a selection of the most relevant topics for students in Odontoiatry.
 

It intends to lead students to deal with the solution of problems in quantitative terms.

The course is divided into modules under Aulaweb, each of which contains teaching material related to the topics covered in class and exercises.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

To transfer the methodology of physics as a basis for scientific learning. To explain the basic principles of physics and their implications in the biomedical field. To teach how to solve simple physics problems on topics directly related to the biomedical field and to provide quantitative assessments and estimates of the phenomena analyzed.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The student must learn the main elements of mechanics, thermology and thermodynamics, electricity, wave phenomena and light, with particular reference to the most relevant topics for students of study courses in Life Sciences.

Students will have to learn to correlate the topics of the lessons on the Aulaweb site with the ability to solve simple physics exercises.

Students must be able to apply mathematical and geometric knowledge to the proposed physical problems.

The student will have to acquire the ability to understand and correlate rather than relying only on memory acquisition. Only the ability to correctly interpret the questions proposed in the form of numerical exercises and/or tests can ensure that the student has understood the topics of the lessons.

PREREQUISITES

Basic mathematics

TEACHING METHODS

The course is held through frontal lessons. Students are required to attend the course and can find material related to the topics covered during the lessons on AulaWeb.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Physical quantities. Vectors. Kinematics. Dynamics. Work and energy. Rotational balance and levers. Statics and dynamics of fluids. Ideal and real fluids. Thermodynamics. First principle of thermodynamics. Perfect gases. Second principle of thermodynamics and entropy. Electric and magnetic phenomena. Waves and electromagnetic waves. Laws of electromagnetism and applications in the medical field. Survey on the operating principles of the LASER.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam is written and requires the resolution of Physics exercises and the answer to open theory questions.

During the course, ongoing tests are foreseen which, if all passed with a grade of at least 18/30, allow the exam to be passed.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The Physics exam is a written test lasting 90 minutes and consists of solving problems and answering theory questions to which scores are assigned that take into account the various difficulties. If the mark is between 15/30 and 17/30, an oral exam must also be taken.

The exam focuses on topics of the program carried out in class and has the purpose of verifying the achievement of the training objectives. The student must demonstrate to have understood the fundamental concepts covered during lessons and to know how to apply them. When the educational objectives are not achieved, the student is invited to better verify her/his knowledge by also contacting the teachers for further explanations .

FURTHER INFORMATION

The teacher receives students on any day on e-mail request, he is also available to answer questions about the lessons and the solution of exercises on the cellphone or skype.
