Modul: physics

Modul no. :n/a
ECTS credits:5
Expenditure of time:54h contact time + 96h self study
Modul type:compulsory module
Duration:1 semester
Supervisor:Prof. Dr. rer. nat. W. Krzyzanowski
Objectives:After successfully completing the module, students have an understanding of the physical aspects of engineering problems. The students are able to analyze and solve problems of mechanics and vibration theory.
The form of the lab course with intensive and autonomous group work requires that the students deal with different communication and working styles in their groups. Accordingly, the students are able to independently apply the basics of classical project management, such as team organization, task planning and division of labor. In this way, they have trained social skills such as teamwork, criticism and communication skills. Furthermore, they have the competence to find solutions to problems and to select the right methods, to conduct research and independent acquisition of knowledge as well as to present and comprehensively document work results.
Contents:Mechanics: Physical quantities and units. Kinematics of masspoint (position vector, velocity, acceleration, inclined throw, circular motion). Dynamics of masspoint (Newtons laws, Force, momentum, equations of motion, collision theory). Work, energy and power (kinetic and potential energy, conservative forces). Rigid body (centre of mass, angular momentum, torque). Gravitation, planetary motions.
Oscillations: Free undamped and damped harmonic oscillator. Forced oscillations. Resonance.
Applicability:Mandatory module for the Mechanical Engineering course and elective mandatory module for other Bachelor courses.
Teaching methods:Lecture, exercises and laboratory work
