Physics 1

Course Description

Study program: Geology (II semester -OAS), Geophysics (I semester -OAS), Geotechnics (I semester -OAS), Hidrogeology (I semester -OAS)

Name of subject: Physics 1

Instructors: Dr Vesna Damnjanović

Status: Compulsory


Prerequisites: -

Course Objectives: Gaining knowledge about the fundamental quantities and laws of physics, essential for the understanding of complex content related to both classical and quantum physics.

Learning Outcomes: Mastering of the theoretical background needed to follow engineering courses.


Theory teaching
Lectures on: kinematics (determining the position and trajectory of a material point, velocity, acceleration, rotation, inclined impact); dynamics (Newton’s laws, forces in mechanics, action, force, energy, rotational dynamics); mechanical oscillations (harmonic oscillator, damped and forced oscillations); hydrostatics (pressure, thrust, surface tension); fluid dynamics (Bernoulli’s equation, friction in real fluid); thermodynamics (temperature, expansion of solids, heat, ideal gas, laws of hydrodynamics, gas processes, barometric equation); wave motion (elastic and electromagnetic waves); electrostatics (Coulomb’s law, electric field, flux, Gaussian law, action of Coulomb’s force, capacitance); direct currents (intensity, density, Ohm’s law, resistance, conductance, Kirchhoff’s laws)); magnetism (magnetic field, Ampere’s law, Lorentz force, induction); and alternating currents (RLC circuits).

Practical teaching
Calculation and experimental assignments. Laboratory work (two students per instrument).
