Course development and history
This is a fundamental course in classical physics. It covers acoustics, electrical fields, magnetic fields, and optics. There are several laboratory experiments.
The first lab.-based bart of the course is early in the year (Sept-Oct). THe main part of the course is later in spring (March-May).
Select the semester and course offering above to get information from the correct course syllabus and course offering.
Electrostatics: Field and potential, Gauss’s theorem, metals and dielectrics, the capacitor, electrostatic energy.
Magnetism: Sources of the field, force and torque, magnetic materials and magnetic energy, technical applications, induction and inductance, mechanical waves.
Electromagnetic waves: Geometrical optics, polarization, interference and diffraction, coherence.
After the course, the student will be able to:
“Physical” in the text above, means that part of physics that is included in the syllabus (se below).

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.
