Course Description:
STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO HAVE COMPLETED The students should know Elemental Physics about Electricity and Magnetism at level of High School. COMPETENCES AND SKILLS THAT WILL BE ACQUIRED AND LEARNING RESULTS. Basic knowledge of the physical fundaments to be able to resolve problems in Engineering related to Electromagnetism- Necessary skills for the development and resolution of problems. - Necessary skills for the mathematical tools. - Mesearuments and experimental anlysises of magnitudes related to Electromagnetism. DESCRIPTION OF CONTENTS: PROGRAMME Coulomb law. Electric field. Gauss law. Electric potential. Conductors. Capacitors, dielectric and energy. Electric current. Magnetic forces and magnetic fields. Sources of magnetic field. Magentic materials. Faraday-Lenz law. Electric oscillations. Electromagnetic waves. LEARNING ACTIVITIES AND METHODOLOGY Magister and practical teaching sessions. Also, it is necessary the attendance of students to laboratory sesions. ASSESSMENT SYSTEM The grade consists in 60% of the final exam and 40% of the continuum evaluation. The attendance at laboratory sessions along with the practises delivery are obligatory in order to pass satisfactorily the subject. The students have to obtain a remark of 3 over 10 in the final exam to make the median value of all evaluations. % end-of-term-examination: 60 % of continuous assessment (assigments, laboratory, practicals…): 40 BASIC BIBLIOGRAPHY - P.
