Fisica Sperimentale (CA)
Experimental Physics Liana Lucchetti
Good basic knowledge of mathematics
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
This course gives students the fundamentals of the experimental method, typical of each scientific subject, and the fundamental laws of classical mechanics. It represents a basic link between the secondary school knowledge and the university teaching. The acquired knowledge allows students to get the necessary instruments for a scientific approach to the analysis of engineering problems. CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The acquired knowledge and physic methods will allow students to understand, analyse and sketch engineering problems. In particular, students will have to acquire the ability to outline complex phenomena into their essential elements and to apply the classical physics laws to describe them. To this aim, the proposed exercises are usually derived from the common experience. Such knowledge and methods can be applied to many of the university courses the student will attend and, in the following, to the problems he will face during the working career. TRANSVERSAL SKILLS:
The methodological approach acquired and the exercises proposed during this course will contribute to improve the judgement ability, the learning skill and that of drawing conclusions.
The scientific method. Cinematic of the point particle. Dynamics of the point particle. Examples of force. Galileian relativity. Non-inertial reference systems. Energy and work. Systems of particles. Conservation laws. Collisions. Cinematic and dynamics of rigid bodies. Scalar and vector fields- Gravitation. Cinematic and dynamics of fluids.
