LEARNING OUTCOMES SPECIFIC FOR THE COURSE:
Upon passing the course, the student will be able to:
1. Introduce and explain concepts that are relevant for the kinematics, including displacement, velocity and acceleration
2. Specify and explain Newton's laws of motion.
3. Introduce and explain concepts that are relevant for the mechanics, including work, energy, impulse and momentum as well as the elasticity of materials.
4. Describe and explain forces and pressures that fluids exert when they are at rest and when they are in motion.
5. Introduce and explain concepts that are relevant for temperature and heat.
6. Describe and explain the nature of waves.
7. Introduce and explain electric forces, electric fields, electric potential energy, magnetic forces, magnetic fields and electromagnetic waves.
8. Describe reflection and refraction of light.9. Specify and explain elementary particles, radioactivity, and ionizing radiation.
Goals of the course are: helping students develop a conceptual understanding of physics principles; helping students to improve their reasoning skill; showing students a wide range of applications of physics principles, many of these applications are biomedical.
