Content and learning outcomes
-Working methods, density, forces and equilibrium, torque, pressure, Archimedes’ principle, energy, mechanical work, power, general gas laws, thermodynamics, electric charge, electric energy, voltage, current, linear motion, force and motion, momentum and impulse
Intended learning outcomes
The course should promote a scientific view and give an understanding of basic physics concepts and quantities and give a good basis for further studies within physics and technical subjects that are included in the 3- and 5-year engineering programs.
After completing the course, the student should be able to:
Conduct, describe, analyze and report experiments to investigate the physics phenomena dealt with in the course.
Apply basic physic models and concepts, to identify, analyze and solve physics problems, within the context of the course content, and present the solutions in a structured way.
Literature and preparations
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TENA - Written examination, 7.5 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
