Fisica 2 (MECC) (A/L)
PHYSICS 2 Paolo Mengucci
Basic concepts of trigonometry, vector and differential calculus. Laws of mechanics of rigid bodies and fluids.
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
This course gives students the fundamentals of the experimental method, typical of each scientific subject, and the fundamental laws of electromagnetism and optics. 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 problemsCAPACITY 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 electromagnetism and optics 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.
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

Development of the examination
LEARNING EVALUATION METHODS
Learning evaluation is assessed through written and oral exams. In the written examination, students must solve problems of electromagnetism and optics using methodologies and mathematical tools discussed during lectures. In the oral examination, students must discuss their written report, explaining the fundamental concepts of electromagnetism and optics.
LEARNING EVALUATION CRITERIA
Learning evaluation consists to prove to have acquired necessary autonomy and skill to outline and solve problems concerning electromagnetism and optics by using properly the fundamental concepts, methodologies and tools presented during lectures. Ability to schematize typically complex phenomena in their essential elements is also evaluated.
LEARNING MEASUREMENT CRITERIA
Marks are expressed on a scale of 30/30. Highest mark value (30 cum laude) is attributed to students that in both written and oral examinations demonstrated full independence to set and solve problems and complete mastery of methods, models and tools of electromagnetism and optics. Lowest mark value (18) is given to students able to solve problems with sufficient knowledge of the methods, models and tools of electromagnetism and optics.
FINAL MARK ALLOCATION CRITERIA
Final mark is obtained by the arithmetic average between the marks of the written and oral exams.
