Course Description

Students study work and energy, potential energy and kinetic energy, momentum, rotary motion of rigid body etc. based on the “Physics 1”
Students can acquire knowledge about DP1 in this class.

Course Objectives

Goal of this class is that students comprehend basic principle of work and energy, potential energy and kinetic energy, momentum, rotary motion of rigid body etc. and solve problems, written in the text, based on the principle in their own force.

Grading Policy

Attendance more than two thirds, midterm exam (50%) and term end exam (50%).
The students will get simple explanations after these exams.

Requirements(Assignments)

Review the Newtonian mechanics students studied in the class “Physics 1”. If students are not good at it, read the text within the contents of the next lecture and write in a notebook (1.5 hours). After the lecture will be ended, solve the exercises in the text in order to review (1.5 hours).

Note

Bring a scientific calculator in case of calculation training in every class.
There is a possibility of change of the contents of class depending on the progress.
