Intended learning outcomes *

Overall goal

The course should promote a scientific view and give an understanding of basic physics concepts and relationships and give a good basis for further studies within physics and technical subjects that are included in the 3- and 5-year engineering programs.

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:

Carry out, describe, analyse and present experiments to examine physical phenomena which are discussed in the course.

Apply the working methods of physics, physics concepts and units, and basic physics models.

Identify, analyse and solve physics problems and present them in a structured way.

  • LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 2.0 credits, Grading scale: P, F
  • TENA - Examination, 8.0 credits, Grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
  • TENB - Examination, 8.0 credits, Grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Other requirements for final grade *

TEN1 - Written examination, 8 credits, Grade P/F

TEN2 - Written examination, 8 credits, Grade P/F

LAB1 - Laboratory exercises, 2 credits, Grade P/F

Furthermore, approved oral and/or written presentations of selected assignments can be required, Grade P/F

For final grade, it is required that all examination parts are approved. The final grade is based on the total number of points from both written examinations, TEN1 and TEN2.
