Learning outcomes of the course unit

The student is able to:
- formulate the equation of motion and use it to solve the motion of point particles,
- apply the laws of conservation of energy and momentum in the description of physical processes,
- describe harmonic, damped and forced oscillations,
- explain the formation of progressive and standing waves,
- describe the phenomena of superposition and interference of waves,
- describe the formation of electric and magnetic fields and explain the relation between variables.


The student who enrols in the course should be able to use the Cartesian coordinate system and the graphical representation of the functions. He should be able to manipulate physical quantities, units and equations. He should be able to use mathematical apparatus at the level of basic work with vectors, linear equations, trigonometric, exponential and power law functions.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Techning methods include lectures, computer laboratories and practical laboratories. Course is taking advantage of e-learning (Moodle) system.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Study evaluation is based on marks obtained for specified items.
Max. final classification is 100 points.
Student can obtain up to:
- 30 points from laboratories (6 reports and 1 test),
- 10 points from computer exercises,
- 60 points from the exam (a written part of 40 points and a verbal part of 20 points).
Students must obtain at least 15 points in the written part to proceed to the verbal part.
Students must obtain at least 5 points in the verbal part to pass the exam.

Language of instruction


Work placements

Not applicable.


The aim of the course is to provide students with a clear and logical interpretation of the basic physical concepts and laws focusing on areas utilized in the audio technology. There are mainly a particle mechanics, oscillations, waves, electric and magnetic fields. Understanding of these concepts and laws will be strengthened through a wide range of interesting applications. Practical knowledge will be verified in the laboratory exercises.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Laboratory and computer exercises are compulsory, properly excused missed exercises can be compensated after consultation with the teacher.
The content and forms of instruction in the evaluated course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every academic year.
