Algebra, analysis , elementary trigonometry and integral and differential vector calculus.
Students are expected to familarize themselves with the fundamental laws of dynamics and be able to think rationally, applying it to concrete physical situations, obtaining , analyzing and understanding the various results and their validity limits.
1 - Units, dimensions, dimensional analysis, trigonometry, elementary algebra and vector (taught simultaneously with other matters).
2 - Relativity of motion, speed, speed, kinetic energy, momentum, acceleration, force, momentum, power and labour. Law of universal attraction. Types of forces. Principle of superposition. Newton's Laws.
3 - Implementation of the 2nd Newton Law
Students engaged in ongoing assessment who solve an exercise per week and attend most classes will be able to take the intermediate test comprising all taught topics and to use the formulae.
