Learning activities and teaching methods
Learning outcomes
The course builds on the course Physics I and provides an overview of basic physical phenomena in other areas of physics in relation to technical (engineering) physics. Topics focus on electricity, magnetism, optics and wave physics.
Understanding and knowledge of basic physical principles. Ability to understand and analyze real situations and problems, which is based primarily on experimental observations and quantitative measurements. The ability to find solutions to these problems by a finite number of physical laws, for the formulation of which a suitable mathematical apparatus is used.
