# Introduction to Physics for Electrical Engineering

7.5 ECTS credits

- Motion in one and two dimensions and laws of motion: Position, speed, acceleration, kinetic equations, Newton's laws, gravitational force, friction, and models of analysis based on Newton's laws.

- Energy and the energy principle: Physical work, kinetic energy, the work-kinetic energy theorem, potential energy, changes in energy levels for conservative and non-conservative forces, effect.

- Electricity: Coulomb's law, special cases of Gauss's law, potential and capacitance, energy in capacitors, current and resistance, the concept of direct current circuits.

- Magnetism: Definition of magnetic fields, magnetic forces on an electric conductor, torque on a current loop, special cases of Biot-Savart's law, Ampère's law, and Gauss's law.

- Electromagnetism: Special cases of Faraday's law, self inductance, mutual inductance, energy in inductors, oscillation in a circuit with condensators and inductors.
