Course content

Learning activities and teaching methods
Learning outcomes
The course is intended for students who attend the first year of the university as a continuation of the course Introduction to physics (Úvod do fyziky). This calculus-based course focuses on the atomic structure of matter and the interaction that matter undergoes. Main goal of this course is to introduce a small number of basic fundamental principles that underlie the behavior of matter, and that using these principles it is possible to construct models that can explain and predict a wide variety of physical phenomena - from classical as well as relativistic motion to specific heat capacity of a solid (this first semester of the fully two semester course is mainly about mechanics and thermodynamics and molecular physics).

Teaching in English is meant only for erasmus and foreign students. In the case of a small number of students is teaching in a form of individual consultations.
