Cours scientifiques - MEC_1F001_EP : Physics I: Mechanics and Heat

Domaine > Mécanique.

Descriptif

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, free and forced oscillations, and resonance 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.
