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:

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.

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 fup, betygsskala: P, F
  • TENA - Written examination, 8,0 fup, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
  • TENB - Written examination, 8,0 fup, betygsskala: 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

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.

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

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
