The global aim is to teach the theoretical physical principles necessary to analyse mechanical problems and introduce the general principle of Physics and Engineering in real problem analysis through the use of logic and simplifications. The strategy to consolidate the knowledge of Physics will be based on the resolution of Engineering problems applying physical principles, trigonometry, vector algebra and calculus (differentiation and integration), crucial to the qualification of the future engineers. The specific aims are the learning of basic mechanical concepts, namely: force, momentum, mechanical equilibrium and conservation theorems(of energy, linear momentum and angular momentum). The students should get familiar with the application of vector algebra to statics, cinematics and dynamics.
At the end of this course, the student should be able to:
- Properly use the laws governing the phenomena studied;
- Use appropriate vocabulary to explain technical concepts and phenomena studied, as well as describe some of its applications;
- Have a critical attitude towards the final results obtained using dimensional analysis, estimates of expected orders of magnitude, study of the interdependence between the quantities involved and the study of the behavior of the solution in borderline cases.
The skills that are the subject of the assessment process (assessment test and final exam distributed) are as follows:
- Correct use of the laws governing the phenomena studied.
- Critical attitude towards the final results.

Theoretical-Practical (TP) classes – Expositive classes where concepts and models are introduced. Practical (P) classes – Tutorial and expositive classes where representative problems are discussed and solved. Proposed problem resolution by the students. Three Laboratory sessions throughout the semester.
- THE MINI TEST IS MANDATORY;
- THE PERFORMANCE OF THE 3 (THREE) LABORATORY PRACTICAL WORKS IS MANDATORY.

- The student will not have frequency if his final continuous classification (distributed evaluation) is less than 3.0 (in 7). - Independently of student’s last continuous classification, if the student is obliged to have frequency to the discipline, he should not exceed the absence limit to the practical classes (25% of the number of previewed classes). Otherwise the student will not be allowed to the final exam. - Students who, in previous years, were inscribed in the discipline are not obliged to have frequency in practical classes.
1 - New students : CF = EF + AD CF (0 - 20 valores) – Final classification EF (0 - 13 valores) – final exam AD (0 – 7 valores) – continous classification where AD = (TPL + Q + P) TPL (0 – 4,5 valores) – Laboratory work Q (0 - 1,5 valores) – multiple choise quiz questions P (0 - 1,0) - solved problem 2 – "old" students ( 2017/2018) : CF = EF + AD18 CF – final classification (0-20 valores) EF – final exam (0-13 valores) AD18 - (0 – 7 valores) – continous classification (2017/2018)
Classification improvement can be done in the re-sit examination period, accordingly to the rules.
