Course detail

Selected Topics in Physics II

FSI-0FKAcad. year: 2019/2020

The aim of course is to aid students understand and practice selected parts of Physics II. The course is the suplement to the lecture, tutorials and home work.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The course develops the knowledge and skills taught in Physics I. Students will learn the definitions of physical quantities, understand and apply physical laws when solving various physical and technical problems.


Students are expected to have basic knowledge of mathematics: solving of linear and quadratic equations, vector algebra, derivation, integration, ...
