The Physics II course aims to provide students with operational knowledge (cf. Learning outcomes and competences) in Electrical Circuits and Electromagnetism – areas of knowledge absolutely fundamental to contemporary engineering. In particular, the physical laws to be addressed explain a wide range of technologies, from motors, instruments, sensors, to energy transport networks and information or electromagnetic radiation. They also explain some of the electromagnetic behaviour of materials that have an increasing technological utility.
At a macro level it is expected in this curricular unit:
The curricular unit is essentially integrated in the descriptors "1. Scientific and Technical Knowledge and Reasoning "and" 2. Personal and professional skills "of the CDIO (Conceiving - Designing - Implementing - Operating) quality system. In particular: (a) "1.1. Knowledge of fundamental sciences "; "1.2. Nuclear Knowledge of Engineering (Engineering Sciences) "; (c) "2.1. Thinking and solving engineering problems "; (d) "2.2. Experimentation and discovery of knowledge ". The descriptor "3.1. Group work "of" 3. Interpersonal skills " is partially addressed.
At the level of the EUR-ACE quality system, the curricular unit is essentially integrated into the descriptor "Knowledge and understanding" and, to a lesser extent, the descriptors "Engineering Analysis" and "Communication and Teamwork".
Specifically at the end of the course students are expected to:a) Describe the quantities, concepts and physical laws that govern Electric Circuits and Electromagnetism, with mathematical rigor, making correct use of scientific vocabulary and identifying domains of validity.
Lectures: presentation by the lecturer of concepts; their illustration by solving key problems;
Recitation classes: problem solving by students under the supervision of the lecturer; laboratory experiments.
Moodle site: power-point presentations of the lectures, multimedia resources, problem sheets, self-evaluation tests, general information of the course and evaluation results.
Office hours: personalized tutorship where doubts on the theory and applications are clarified.
|Frequência das aulas||56,00|
Students with a previous inscription in the course obtain frequency if:
- Obtain a mark of 10 valores in the laboratory component.
- The laboratory mark (is larger than 10) is the one of the previous year.
Students with a first inscription in the course obtain frequency if:
- Do not miss more than 4 recitation classes;
- Obtain a mark of 10 valores in the laboratory component.Students without frequency cannot pass the "recurso exam".
The evaluation consists in:
- TI: mid-term test;
- TF: final test;
- L1, L2: two labs in pre-defined dates;
The final mark NF is given by the formula:
IF ((L1+L2)/2 ≥ 10,0) and IF ((TI e TF ≥ 5,0) and ((TI+TF)/2 ≥7,0))
than NF=(TI+TF+L1+L2)/4 ;
Students with NF > 16 might have to pass a special oral examination: POC. For them the final mark is max(16, POC).
For the students that during the present academic year have a working student or military statute both the frequency conditions and obligatory distributed evaluation are optional. The students in the conditions described above and that have decided to opt out from the distributed evaluation scheme or decided not to use the previous academic year distributed evaluation mark are admitted to the recurso exam with the final mark given by the exam mark. The recurso exame might have a laboratory component.
The students with the “dirigente associativo” statute cannot opt out from the distributed evaluation scheme.
Non-portuguese speaking students will follow a tutorial regime (i.e. the standard classes will be given in Portuguese, studets will use the office hours for follow-up). The group laboratory component of the final mark will be kept.
Through the “Recurso” exam, which might include a laboratory component.
Office hours M Helena Braga: Monday, 10h00-12h00, office H314.
It is expected that students dedicate 4 to 6 hours of weekly study to the course, further to the normal attendance to the theoretical and recitation lectures.
The student who can not attend one or two tests for whatever reason can get approval in the final extra exam. The final grade at UC will be the average of the exam with the laboratorial component.
Any fraud attempt during the distributed evaluation process will lead to loss of frequency and non-admission to the recurso exam.
