Scientific Disciplinary Sector (SSD)

FIS/07 - APPLIED PHYSICS

Courses Single

Not Authorized

The teaching is organized as follows:

##### Fisica

##### Matematica

## Learning objectives

The course aims to provide a knowledge of the basic elements of mathematics necessary for the study of science and to introduce the student to the knowledge of the main physical laws and their applications, particularly in the biomedical field.

Objectives Mathematics Unit

The teaching is aimed at the acquisition of knowledge and understanding of fundamental tools for mathematical analysis and geometry, at the understanding and elaboration of application models based on mathematical structures.

Applying the skills acquired, the student must be able to interpret and solve equations related to the mathematical modeling of natural phenomena.

Objectives Unit of PHYSICS

The teaching is aimed at acquiring knowledge and understanding the main theoretical models of physics and the hypotheses on which they are based; the ability to understand and apply these models to real cases, evaluating the reliability of the results obtained in connection with the measurement errors and the limits of validity of the models themselves.

The student will have to acquire a correct use of the procedures of abstraction, of formalization of the quantitative language, of understanding of the experimental method. At the end of the course the student will have to know the main laws of Physics, in particular in the fields of the mechanics of the material point, of the rigid body and of the fluids. He must have learned the basics of electrostatics, magnetism and electrodynamics.

## Bibliography

## Didactic methods

Lessons take place face to face. During the lessons the theoretical topics are dealt with and immediately afterwards many exercises are carried out for the application of theoretical concepts and for preparation for the final exam.

## Learning assessment procedures

Written exam, including both modules, with open question exercises. Indicatively there will be two Physics exercises for each Mathematics exercise. Duration 2 hours maximum. No books or notes are allowed. Bring calculator and pen and ID. The sheets will be distributed by the teacher. Write your name, surname and serial number on all the sheets delivered. It is possible to make a draft. All the sheets (even the draft) must be returned at the end of the exam. The text written in pencil will not be considered in the evaluation. The exercises can be carried out in a different order from that indicated in the text but the number of the exercise to which it refers must be clearly indicated before the exercise. Two or more different solutions of the same exercise are not allowed.

**Students with disabilities or specific learning disorders (SLD), who intend to request the adaptation of the exam, must follow the instructions given HERE**

## Evaluation criteria

The correctness of the procedure adopted by the student to solve the exercises and the use of units of measurement will be taken into account. Alternative solutions are welcome, as long as they are correct. Calculation errors that lead to solutions that are incompatible with the problem are considered serious. The clarity in the mathematical passages and in the order of the paper will also be taken into account.

## Criteria for the composition of the final grade

The final grade will be given by the weighted average for the CFU credits of the grades obtained in the Physics and Mathematics sections separately.
