Course objectives
The aim of the course is to obtain knowledge of Mechanics and Molecular Physics at the university level. The emphasis is on the logical structure of this discipline and to acquire the knowledge and skills needed for teaching physics at primary school. For these reasons, an exercise contains a greater number of tasks with emphasis on the relationship of the topic to practice, nature, household, technical applications, etc.
