Learning objectives

  • Being able to work with symbols (as opposed to numerical values)

  • Being able to apply physical concepts to everyday phenomena

  • Learning to analyse and solve problems associated with the (derived) conservation laws of classical mechanics, fluid dynamics and the thermodynamics

  • Being able to apply the qualities of the simple periodic movement to physical systems


Content
Every technical engineer should be able to explain in a well founded way, the general physical phenomena such as; why don’t I fall out of a rollercoaster. Why are the leaves on trees green, why is the sun red at dusk and is the sky blue? And why does the sea level not rise when an iceberg melts. The engineer should be able to apply knowledge of these phenomena in the design of products or the analysis of the world around us. The basic course ‘Applied Physical Sciences” gives the future engineer the basis to work with physical phenomena in both a conceptual and a more fundamental way. To meet the requirements of the different faculties in abstraction levels, the university has chosen to offer this course in three versions. One version is especially composed for the faculty of Mechanical Engineering with a module of concepts specifically important to that faculty. The concepts treated in the other two versions are the same for both, but will be worked out in different ways.



In this conceptual version the concepts will be introduced via practical examples (broadening). The focus will be on the application of these concepts for the explanation of general physical phenomena.




Week 1

  • longitudinal and transversal waves

Week 6
  • Interference, superposition, standing waves, natural frequency

  • Sound waves, Doppler effect, resonance, ‘beat’ frequency

Week 7

Short promotional description of the course
Dit vak zal aankomende ingenieurs een conceptuele basis geven van enkele fundamentele begrippen in de natuurkunde, waarmee zij zich een 'gefundeerd' idee kunnen vormen over zowel wetenschappelijke als technologische ontwikkelingen op het gebied van de medische-/nano-/energietechnologie, klimaatcontrole, etc. Het belang van de concepten die behandeld zullen worden, zal verduidelijkt worden aan de hand van aansprekende demonstraties en voorbeelden waarbij bovenstaande technologieën van belang zijn
Short promotional description of the course
This course will give future engineers the conceptual basis of a few fundamental concepts of physics, with which they can form a “founded” idea of both scientific and technological developments in the fields of medical, nano and energy technology, climate control etc. The importance of the concepts that will be treated, will be cleared up using engaging demonstrations and examples in which the above named technologies are important.
