Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to: 

  • to describe the basics of special relativity theory and to solve simple calculation examples from the subject area: Simultaneity, time dilation, length contraction, Galileo and Lorentz transformation, relative velocity, relative momentum, relative mass, relative energy.
  • to explain in the field of electrostatics and magnetostatics the basic terms and apply the most important principles: charge, field, dipole, charge transport, capacitor, insulator, energy density, direct current, alternating current.
  • to solve tasks from the field of electrodynamics with regard to the following topics: Force between moving charges, field concept, Lorenz force, induction field, magnetic field, magnetic dipoles, electromotive force, magnetic flux, Faraday induction, Lenz's law, self-induction, energy stored in coil, magnetic influence, plate capacitor, susceptibility, Maxwell equations, components in the circuit (ohmic, capacitive and inductive resistance; transformer; electric oscillating circuits). 
  • to calculate the velocity and wavelength of electromagnetic waves in different media and to predict the influence of different geometric optics (mirrors, lenses, reflection, refraction) on the beam path. Understand the propagation of sound waves, the Doppler effect and standing waves (e.g. in musical instruments). Describe basic effects of wave optics such as interference and experiments with single or double slits, mathematically.

Examination modalities

A written examination on the lecture contents. The exam lasts 90 minutes and consists of 5 tasks. These tasks are chosen randomly from the subject areas and consist of calculation examples (problems given in words) that test logic, comprehension and mathematical skills.

A total of 100 points are awarded for the exam; 88-100 points correspond to a "Sehr Gut", 75-87 points to a "Gut", 62-74 points to a "Befriedigend", 50-61 points to a "Genügend" and less than 50 points to a " Nicht Genügend", which means that the exam would have to be repeated.

Allowed aids in the examination are: self-written formulary and help sheets (2 A4 sheets of paper written on both sides) and a non-programmable calculator.

Special features: If the UE Physics II (successor of the PS Physics Proseminar II 138.081) is completed successfully, you will receive 10 bonus points in the written exam.

Literature

We roughly follow "Physik für Bachelors", J. Rybach, Hanser Verlag

Some fields, as for example relativity are oriented more at "Physics for Scientists & Engineers with modern Physics", D.C. Giancoli, Pearson International. The latter book is rather comprehensive and suited very well as a reference with many exercises related to practical problems.
