Learning activities and teaching methods
Monological explanation (lecture, presentation,briefing)
  • Class attendance - 28 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
The subject uses students' knowledge of secondary school physics and of high school mathematics (differential and integral calculus, vector analyze). It deals basic terminology, basic physical laws and principles. The applications of basic physics in natural sciences are presented.
Basic orientation in application of physics to another nature sciences.
Any one
