Lecturing, Activating (Simulation, games, dramatization)
  • Preparation for examination - 25 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
The course is focused on mechanical vibrations and waves, electromagnetic waves, thermodynamics, and elementary quantum theory. This course and Physics I course make a complete introductory physics course. The aim of the course is to explain the relationship between physics and ensuing technical and chemical subjects.
The student has basic physical knowledge from vibrations and waves, optics, thermodynamics, modern physics and is oriented in important physical concepts.
Basic knowledge in mathematics, mechanics, electricity and magnetism.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination, Analysis of works made by the student (Technical products), Systematic observation of the student

Attendance: not compulsory. Course credit: winning the required number of points in exercises, winning the required number of points in labs. Examination: knowledge of the topics according to the syllabus. Obtaining the credit before the exam. The result of a subject examination is expressed on a six-point scale: A "výborně" (i.e. "excellent"), B "velmi dobře" (i.e. "very good"), C "dobře" (i.e. "good"), D "uspokojivě" (i.e. "satisfactory"), E "dostatečně" (i.e. "sufficient"), F "nedostatečně" (i.e. "fail").
