### Objectives

Introductory Course on Mechanics and Waves where fundamental physical principles in these areas are presented.

### Learning outcomes and competences

Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:

- Analyze physical quantities in terms of units and dimensions.

- Analyze elemental problems of motion in one, two and three dimensions. Analyze, in particular, the motion of projectiles and circular motion.

- Apply Newton's laws and the work-kinetic energy theorem in common introductory problems.

- Understand introductory concepts involved in the conservation of linear momentum and energy.

- Apply the basic principles relating to simple harmonic motion.
