Cours scientifique - PHY101 : Physics I: Mechanics and Heat

Domaine > Mécanique.


Physics I (PHY101) introduces students
to basis concepts in mechanics and thermodynamics.
It first covers point-like
and simple solids in various coordinate
systems; while providing an overview of
the fundamental law of dynamics, kinetic
and potential energy, linear and angular
momentum; central and conservative
forces and mechanical work. Harmonic
oscillators, resonance, and one dimensional
waves are studied in this context.
Kinetic theory of ideal gas introduces
the basic thermodynamic concepts: heat,
temperature, entropy, efficiency, state
variables for closed system. Upon completion
of this course, students will master
basic equations and principles in classical
mechanics and thermodynamics and will
be able to derive and solve simple models
taken from their environment.
For this course, students can request to have
a Pass/Fail grade instead of a letter grade.
Students who receive a Pass grade still
benefit from the ECTS credits associated
to the course but their grade does not count
towards calculating their GPA. Students
can make such a request for a maximum of
two courses during Semester 1.
