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.

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F


  • 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 - Written 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

TENA - Written examination, 8 credits, Grade A-F

TENB - Written examination, 8 credits, Grade A-F

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

Furthermore, approved oral and/or written presentations of selected assignments can be required, Grade A-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, TENA and TENB.

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination

Ethical approach

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
