### Physics 2R

#### Course Description

#### General Competencies

Students completing this course will: understand, appreciate and utilize basics of optics, wave theory and atomic physics in modern technologies and its devices; understand the fundamental principles of physics to prepare students to continue education in modern science and technology, as well as forming a foundation for life-long learning.

#### Learning Outcomes

- Analyze mechanical oscillatory systems.
- Apply the linearization technique to equations of motion of the oscillatory systems.
- Explain the wave equation in non-dispersive medium.
- Derive the electromagnetic wave equation from the Maxwell’s equations.
- Explain the phenomena of interference, diffraction and polarization of light.
- Explain the law of black body radiation by the Planck’s quantum mechanics.
- Analyze one-dimensional quantum mechanical systems.

#### Forms of Teaching

**Lectures**Lectures are delivered to groups of approximately 120 students using electronic presentations, detailed derivations on the blackboard and demonstration experiments.

**Exams**Written mid-term exam and the final exam consist of four excercises and a number of multiple choice questions.

**Laboratory Work**Students perform six laboratory experiments, carry out the analisys of the measured data and write the final report for each experiment.

**Experiments**Lectures are supported by demonstration experiments that illustrate the concepts of physics. Approximately 30 mins / week.

**Consultations**At least once a week each professor is available to the students for consultations.

**E-learning**During the semester homework assignments are delivered to the students through the e-learning system Merlin (Moodle).

**Other Forms of Group and Self Study**In approximately 4 terms per semester additional exercise-solving skills are demonstrated by assistants.
