Learning Outcomes: 

Upon succesful completion of this course, a student will be able to
1. Convert (C) the verbal description of a problem into the language of physics, sketch (a) a diagram to analyze (A) it in terms of the known and unknown physical quantities.
2. Apply (a) the fundamental principles of physics, like the three laws of Newton, Gauss’ Law, Kirchhoff’s rules or the Zeroth law of thermodynamics; expressed as (C) mathematical equations involving the known/unknown physical quantities for any given problem, and then solve (a) them for the unknowns.
3. Recognize (a) differentiation as a tool to evaluate (E) the slope of a curve or integration as a tool to evaluate (E) the area under a curve, respectively, in determining related physical quantities.
4. Evaluate (E) the correct number of significant figures for each parameter in the given problem; perform calculations using estimates of order of magnitudes, and carry out unit algebra.
5. Employ (a) the vector notation in order to identify (C) the components of multidimensional problems and evaluate (E) each independently.
6. Express (C) verbally and in writing the concepts, processes and results in general physics effectively and competently.
8. Bloom’s Taxonomy Levels: (C) Comprehension, (a) Application, (A) Analyze, (E) Evaluate.
