Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

Mathematics from the first two years of study.

Aim

Highly educated engineer s should have a solid analytical ability based upon knowledge in science and technology. The aim of this course is to establish such a knowledge of matter that the students will be able to understand and communicate in depth information about the behavior and function of a manifold of technical devices and systems.

Goal

To provide insight into the principles and laws behind the arrangemant and motion of matter on the every day life to the microscopic size level.

Content

The course starts by refreshing your knowledge about mechanics and wave motion. Motion is described and explained by the concept of force, energy and angular momentum and basic physical laws.
Then the structure and function of microskopical objects are introduced. The next and major step is to deal with the motion and propagation of particles and waves on an atomic scale. Several applications will discussed.

Organisation

Lectures. Class exercises. Tutorials.

Literature

Examination

Written exam. Passes assignments. Compulsory attendance at 80 % of tutorials.
