Description:

Units and measurement – Vectors - Motion along straight line - Motion in two dimensions and three dimensions -    Force and motion  I - Force and motion  II - Kinetic energy, work, and power – Electricity

Objectives:

The main objective of this course is to provide the students with a background of basic physics concepts, which allows them to understand the general laws of mechanics and electricity.

 At the end of this course, students should be capable to

Understand the fundamental laws and principles of mechanics and electricity.

Describe the nature phenomena by using the language of physics.

Solve physics problems efficiently through the appropriate use of basic mathematical and physical concepts.

Outcome:

1.      Recognize the fundamental physical quantities and their units.

2.      Describe straight‐line motion in terms of velocity and acceleration.

3.      Define vectors in Cartesian and polar Coordinates and their addition in terms of their Cartesian components.

4.      Identify the concept of force and relate it to the mass and acceleration of the object.

5.      Define Weight, normal force, and contact force.

6.      Recognize the kinetic energy, work and power

7.      Define electric field and electric potential.

8.      Demonstrate the ability to solve basic problems of physics in those practical situations covered in the course.

9.      Use the vector notation in order to separate the two or three dimensional problems into their components along different Cartesian directions and solve each independently.

10.  Apply the gained mathematical and experimental knowledge in any physical related topic.

11.  Analyze and utilize Newton’s laws of motion.

12.  Completing assignments in due time.

13.  Participate in class discussion and think critically.

14.  Acting responsibly and ethically in carrying out individual as well as group projects.

15.  Communicate, listen, negotiate, and evaluate their strengths and weaknesses as members of a team.

16.  Developing the student skills in the usage of computer, network, and software packages relevant to nuclear physics.

17.  Improving student communication skills such as : writing, reading, presenting, negotiating and debating
