a) To present a detailed description of the basic concepts of Classic Mechanics and Thermodynamics with a special emphasis on the most essential aspects, trying to develop intuition and reasoning;
b) To introduce the necessary mathematical tools;
c) To develop the ability to apply mathematics to problems of the real world of physics and engineering; d) To include examples of application in order to show the results
Students who successfully complete this course will:
1- be capable of explaining basic concepts and physical phenomena using appropriate vocabulary in two different areas of Physics: Classic Mechanics and Thermodynamics.
2- be able to use the laws governing the basic phenomena of these 2 areas to calculate relevant physical quantities.
3- be capable to show how the referred concepts explain phenomena observed in everyday life, and how they apply to engineering problems.
4- be capable of team work in solving problems and also be able to solve problems independently.
Prerequisites: vector, differencial and integral calculus.
Corequisites: ordinary diferential equations.
- Classes will be based on the presentation, discussion and problem solving of the themes of the course. Experimental demonstrations will be performed when possible.

► 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:
OR students keep the CA grade obtained last year,
OR students can, irreversibly, choose to submit to the CA in this year, annulling the earlier CA grade.
Without frequency in the previous year:
OR students undergoes CA in the present year,
OR students just attend the final exams, performing the exam to 20 points.
► Regardless the continuous Assessment (CA) grade, all the students can attend the final exams.
► The distributed evaluation will consist of two tests, each with the duration of 1.5h.
► Approximate dates, to be confirmed later, for the midterm tests:
- 1st TEST: 7th week of classes, starting March the 25th;
- 2nd TEST: 12th week of classes, starting April the 29th.
• The final grade of the continous assessment (CA) is given by the mean value of the grades of the two midterm exams.
• If the grade of the final exam (EX) is less than 8,0 (minimum score in the final exam to complete the course), the course final grade will be that of the final exam. Otherwise, the course final grade (FG) will be given by:
FG = Maximum (0,45*CA + 0,55*EX ; EX)
• The final course grade is the grade of the final exam, when exempted from other eligibility for exams criteria.
• Students may take part in the continuous assessment (CA) under the rules for eligibility for exams.
In the written examination periods allowed by the regulations, the final course grade being given by the same calculation formula of the final grade.
– It is strictly forbiden the use of mobile phones or any other comunication device during the exams. They should be turned off. Their use is considered as fraud.
- The formula sheet available for classes will be provided in the examinations.
– According to the course ECTS, the weekly study time is approximately 10 hours.
