FISI-1018 Physics I
The aim of the course is to help the student develop a critical attitude towards the solution of scientific and practical problems. The student will be introduced to the scientific method through the study of the laws of mechanic, including kinematics in one and two dimensions, Newton´s laws, conservation laws, rotational motion, gravitation and har- monic motion, at a level suitable for beginning undergraduates. The experiments performed during the semester will help the student to better understand the concepts in mechanics acquired in the theory class and to relate real physical phenomena with the models used to describe them.
