Acquisition of knowledge of underlying sciences
At the end of this course unit, students should be capable of:
- Correctly use basic vocabulary of classic mechanics.
- Apply the fundamental laws of classic mechanics in the analysis and resolution of problems.
- Use Newton’s laws to explain natural phenomena and identify similar phenomena in technology and engineering applications, based on the same laws and concepts.
- Develop an attitude of respect towards the laws of nature.
- Develop personal and professional skills and attributes
- Develop skills in the autonomous resolution of problems.
- Develop a critical thinking by testing solutions using tools as dimensional analysis, forecasting quantity orders and estimates and comparison with limit cases.
- Develop their responsibility and ethics.
- Develop their oral and written communication skills.
3. Interpersonal skills
At the end of this course, students should
- Develop teamwork skills.
- Develop oral communication skills.
PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: Students should be familiar with the basic calculus tools given in Mathematical Analysis I and Mathematical Analysis II courses.
1. Classical Mechanics: Measurements and units. Vectors. Kinematics. Newton's Laws. Work and energy. Systems of particles. Conservation laws. Collisions. Rotation of a rigid body around a fixed axis. Statics. Systems with many particles. Statics of a rigid body.
Theoretical-practical (TP) classes: 2 classes/week, 1h30 hour each The concepts and the fundamental are introduced.
Practical (P) classes: 1 classes/week, 1 hour each Students have to prepare and try to solve a set of problems indicated in TP classes.

For students in 1st registration: Number of absences defined by UP regulation.
For students with two or more registrations: For these students there is no criterion of attendance, ie, there is no marking of faults.
With frequency in the previous year: perform the exam to 20 points.
Without frequency in the previous year:
attend the final exams, performing the exam to 20 points.
MN = Max(0,70*E + 0,30*CA, E)
MN – Mark in the normal season
E - Exam;
CA - Continuous Assessment: tests / the CA mark obtained in the previous year.
An exam at the corresponding season.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the evaluation of this curricular unit involves only a final exam. There is no continuous assessment.
Students are allowed to use calculators ( alphanumeric are not allowed) and a form in all tests.
