The goal is to create a physical pillar for further study. In the course of reciting the basics of mechanics, relativistic physics, basic electricity and magnetism, basic geometric and wave optics.


Credit will consist of written part of the contents of lectures given and independent study. In the test, the student may use literature, Internet, mobile phone or consult with other students. The oral part of the credit is only in the case of an ambiguous test evaluation.

The written test is part of the combined credit of:

- ABC-type answers (possibly more correct answers) - correctly answered question 1 point

- The answer when it is necessary to respond in writing (very important issues) - 5 points

- The answer when it is necessary to respond in writing (conversion relationships, etc.) - 1 point

- The answer when it will be necessary to demonstrate the mathematical and physical knowledge (examples, etc.) - 5 - 15 points depending on the complexity of the issue

Students can reach the maximum number of 80 points, with the successful execution of the credit is necessary to achieve 60 points or more (75%).

Rating ECTS:

A good 100-90 (excellent)

B 89-80 very good (very good)

C 79-70 well (good)

D 69-60 satisfactory (satisfactory)

E 59-50 enough (sufficient)

F 49-0 failed (failed)
