Learning outcomes
The principal objective of this course is to provide a basic education in th field of classical physics with some elements of modern physics and some applications of biophysics. At the end of the course, the student will be able to use the proper terminology to describe the phenomena and a rigorous method to explain the foundamentals of physics.
Course contents
Physical quantities and units, vectors, 1 and multi-dimentional motion, momentum, Newton laws, university gravitation law, work, energy and power, circular motion, harmonic oscillator, waves, statics and elements of dinamics of fluids, electric forces, fields and potential, electric capacity, electric current, circuits with continuous and alternate current, magnetic field, Lorentz force, magnetic induction, electromagnetic waves, elements of acoustics, geometrical and wave optics, elements of ioniozing radiation and of their biological effects. Laboratory: demonstration of Hooke law, measurement with optical microscope, demonstration of Ohm law.
Teaching methods
The theory lessons are frontal and the notes are made available to students in the Kiro platform. The laboratory part requires the realization of the experiments at the presence of a tutor and the compilation of a report with the data analysis

Assessment methods
Written exam, with the possibility of oral integration. The exam consists in two open questions, 10 multiple choice questions, two exercises (scores: 5+5, 10, 5+5). Questions are about the whole program, student must demonstrate to have basic notions, to know how to concisely explain two topics, and to know how to solve numerical exercises applying methods learned during lessons.
