Sustainable Development Goals
Stimulate communication proficiencies that involves the ability to think in physical terms.
Develop skills to analyze, equate and solves problems that involve understanding the concepts and laws studied, applying appropriate mathematical algorithms.
Develop attitudes of responsibility and autonomy in the knowledge construction.
Introduce and apply the fundamental methods and techniques that involve experimental work, in terms of measurement, data processing, interpretation of results and presentation.
Develop simple experimental projects, from conception to execution, including analysis and processing of data and the discussion of results.
Fundamentals of Newtonian Mechanics.
Dynamics of a System of Particles.
Gravitational attraction and movement under the action of a Central Force
Dynamics in Non-Inertial reference frames
PL component experimental study of a set of topics such as:
Movements in nature such as the projectile, exploring the effect of air resistance. The recordings of the positions and times are made with a video camera and/or motion sensors connected to electronic stopwatches;
Newton's 2nd law study with simple mechanical systems
Principles of conservation of energy, linear momentum, angular momentum using low friction systems (air track and rotational dynamics device) or ballistic pendulum;
Study of oscillations (pendulum, springs and forced oscillations).
Determination of the universal gravitation constant with a Cavendish balance
Work guides are provided.
The theoretical evaluation (70%) may be taken or by performing two tests or by a final exam. The practical assessment (30%) relates to the proposed laboratory modules. Final grade= 070*T+0.30*PL
