# GENERAL PHYSICS I

Acquire knowledge of mechanics enough to be able to formalize problems

related to simple mechanical systems. Deepen some essential

knowledge, first of all that related to the conservation principles and the

concept of energy in mechanics. Extending the concept of energy to the

thermal case. Acquire basic knowledge on thermal machines. Knowing

how to formalize simple problems related to thermodynamic processes.

More generally, improving the skill in the problem solving. Getting used

to apply mathematical tools in exemplificative circumstances: some

these tools are assumed known, some others are acquired in this course,

some others are acquired in parallel courses.

Basic knowledge in algebra, and elements of Euclidean geometry (at a

high-school level ). Some essential elements of the introductory courses of Math. Analysis, derivatives and integrals.

tutoring available (see below)

Remote teaching is foreseen, at least for the duration of covid-19 restrictions (see below)

218/5000

Written exam, followed, if passed and if deemed necessary, by oral exam. The written test can be structured in various ways, but normally consists of a certain number of elementary exercises and one or two problems.

In the covid-19 restriction time, the above described examination method is replaced by apposite tests in the moodle platform, wit remore surveillannce. Those tests ae designed in such way to be as similar as possible (in terms of contents and required abilities) to the traditional exams.

If available, tutoring personnel can help in diverse activities

Remote teaching will take advantage from the moodle-unisi platform. Diverse materiale will be made avaialable in the moodle repository.

Direct contacts based on google-meet platform will enable students-teacher reciprocal communication.
