Learning outcomes

The teaching course of Physics I with Laboratory contributes to the achievement of the training objectives of the three year degree in Applied Mathematics by providing: - the basic elements of the scientific method, even with the help of laboratory experiments, in order to show that physics is a quantitative science based on the measurement of physical quantities; - the basic knowledge of classical mechanics of the particle, of the particle systems and of the rigid body; - the guidelines useful for the resolution of exercises and problems of classical mechanics; achievement of the fundamental principles of thermodynamics, heat and thermal conductivity.

At the end of the course, the student must demonstrate to: - have adequate abilities to analyse and to abstract typical physical situations of the particle mechanics, of the particle systems, of the rigid body and of thermodynamics; - be able to produce rigorous proofs, and mathematically formalize problems of the particle mechanics, of the particle systems, of the rigid body and of thermodynamics formulated in natural language; - have the ability to build and develop mathematical models for physics and analyse their application limits. - be able to set up and perform some simple experiments for the measure of various physical quantities and the subsequent representation (histograms and graphs) as well as the analysis of the collected data.


The teaching course of PHYSICS I with Laboratory consists of two distinct modules:
- Theory module (9 CFUs)
- Laboratory module (3 CFUs)
delivered in a coordinated and functional way to ensure the student learning within the lesson schedule.

The Theory module provides basic knowledge of classical mechanics through the derivation of the laws and principles governing the motion of the bodies, as well as the elements useful for resolving exercises and problems of the particle kinematics and dynamics, of the dynamics of particle's systems (and of the rigid body), as well as bascis of calorimetry and the principles of thermodynamics.
The main topics covered within this module are:
Kinematics of the particle: reference frames, displacement, velocity and acceleration vectors. One- dimensional motion. Motions in two and three dimensions. Relative motions. Principle of classic relativity. Circular motion.
Dynamics of the material point. Newton's laws and applications. Forces existing in nature. The fundamental forces. Friction and resisting forces. Apparent forces. Work and Energy. Principle of conservation of mechanical energy.
Dynamics of particle systems. Conservation of momentum. The reference system of the center of mass. Impact dynamics. Elastic and inelastic collisions. Dynamics of the rigid body (hints).

The Laboratory module aims at providing the essential elements of the experimental method, demonstrating that physics is a quantitative science based on measurement of physical quantities and on the evaluation of the measurement uncertainties due to instrument resolution and random errors. The main topics covered in this module are the basics of the experimental method and the theory of measurement errors applied to the analysis of experimental data related to some simple experiments (such as measurement with different length tools, oscillation period of a pendulum simple, verification of elastic stretching law).

The didactic methods of the teaching course of Physics I with Laboratory are differentiated for the two modules.

The Theory module, which is articulated in lessons and frontal exercises, is entirely delivered in the classroom. In order to help the student in the understanding and learning of the laws and principles presented, a systematic reference to phenomenology will be made during the frontal lessons. The course is supplemented by the solution in classroom of exercises and problems (kinematics and dynamics) to help the student to face and pass the written test of the final exam.
In addition to the hours of the theory module, a tutorial activity is provided frontally in the classroom and specifically devoted to recalls and complements of analysis and vector geometry as well as to resolution of additional exercises and problems.

The Laboratory module is divided into a part of lessons at the chalkboard about the experimental method and theory of the measurement errors, and a second part consisting of the experiments carried out by the students, for which there is a requirement for frequency. Laboratory sessions concern the execution of simple experiments involving the measurement of physical quantities, the analysis of the collected data and the processing of the related errors as well as the elaboration of a report with the discussion of the experiment results.

Examination Methods

The examination of the teaching course of Physics I with Laboratory consists of a series of independent knowledge verifications for the two modules of Theory and of Laboratory, for each of which the evaluation is in thirty and will contribute to determining the overall rating according to the weight criterion based on the CFUs number of the specific module.

A) Theory Course:
The final exam consists of both a written test and an oral interview, to which the student is admitted after having overcome the written test. The written test is considered to be overcome when the related vote achieved by the student is not less than 18/30. Examination methods for the theory module are the same for attending and non-attending students.
The two written and oral tests are aimed at ascertaining the level of knowledge acquired by the student within the theory teaching module:
The written test concerns the resolution of some typical problems of mechanics of the particle, of particle systems, which include the application of laws and derived principles (both enunciated and demonstrated) during frontal lessons and systematically recalled during classroom exercises.
The oral examination consists of an interview with questions about the classroom developed program related to the derivation of physical laws and the demonstration of the theorems and conservation principles of the particle dynamics, of particle systems and about laws and principles of thermodymanics and calorimetry.
For the theoretical module, a cumulative evaluation is obtained by making the arithmetic mean of the evaluations obtained in both written and oral tests exceeded.

B) Laboratory Course:
For the lab module, an ongoing and a final group’s report on the simple pendulum experiment is evaluated, the evaluation being also expressed in thirty and a test at the end of the course that will evaluate the learning status of what done in the Laboratory.

The overall assessment of the examination of the teaching course of Physics I with laboratory will be the average, weighted on the number of the module CFUs, of the marks achieved in the assessment tests for each of the two modules (Theory and Laboratory).
