Sustainable Development Goals
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.
Electrostatic: Electric charge, Coulomb's Law; punctual and continuous distribution; Elec-tric field and Potential; Dipole; Energy, Gauss's Law, Capacity; dielectrics.
Electricity: current, current density; Conductivity Ohm's Law; conductors; Superconduc-tivity; Dissipated energy; e.m.f.
DC circuits; Kirchoff's Law; circuit analysis; RC circuits; Electrical Measuring Instru-ments;
Magnetic Field: Lorentz force; Biot-Savart and Ampere laws; Solenoid; MF in the matter; MF Planetarium.
Electromagnetic induction: Faraday's Law; Displacement Current; Maxwell relations; Electromagnetic waves; Spectrum.
AC current: Generators; sinusoidal currents; Admittance; Impedance; Circuits; Power and Energy; RLC circuits; Resonance.
Magnetic fields in matter
Electric Field Lines, capacitors, experimental Coulomb's law verification
Ohm's and Kirchhoff's Laws
RC, RL, RLC circuits, transformers
Electromagnetic waves/optical fibers
Assessment: The theoretical assessment (75%) can be done continuously involving several tests or through a final exam. There is also the possibility to carry out an exam at the time of appeal. The practical evaluation (25%) focuses on the proposed laboratory modules.
