## Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to:

• to describe the basics of special relativity theory and to solve simple calculation examples from the subject area: Simultaneity, time dilation, length contraction, Galileo and Lorentz transformation, relative velocity, relative momentum, relative mass, relative energy.
• to explain in the field of electrostatics and magnetostatics the basic terms and apply the most important principles: charge, field, dipole, charge transport, capacitor, insulator, energy density, direct current, alternating current.
• to solve tasks from the field of electrodynamics with regard to the following topics: Force between moving charges, field concept, Lorenz force, induction field, magnetic field, magnetic dipoles, electromotive force, magnetic flux, Faraday induction, Lenz's law, self-induction, energy stored in coil, magnetic influence, plate capacitor, susceptibility, Maxwell equations, components in the circuit (ohmic, capacitive and inductive resistance; transformer; electric oscillating circuits).
• to calculate the velocity and wavelength of electromagnetic waves in different media and to predict the influence of different geometric optics (mirrors, lenses, reflection, refraction) on the beam path.

## Subject of course

Introduction to physics II:

• Special relativity
• Electrostatics and magnetostatics
• Basics of electrodynamics
• Basics of optics and wave mechanics

## Teaching methods

## Examination modalities

A written examination on the lecture contents. The exam lasts 90 minutes and consists of 5 tasks. These tasks are chosen randomly from the subject areas and consist of calculation examples (problems given in words) that test logic, comprehension and mathematical skills.

A total of 100 points are awarded for the exam; 88-100 points correspond to a "Sehr Gut", 75-87 points to a "Gut", 62-74 points to a "Befriedigend", 50-61 points to a "Genügend" and less than 50 points to a " Nicht Genügend", which means that the exam would have to be repeated.

Allowed aids in the examination are: self-written formulary and help sheets (2 A4 sheets of paper written on both sides) and a non-programmable calculator.

Special features: If the UE Physics II (successor of the PS Physics Proseminar II 138.081) is completed successfully, you will receive bonus points in the written exam.

## Curricula

Study CodeSemesterPrecon.Info
033 290 Technical Chemistry 2. Semester
Course belongs to the introductory and orientation phase ("Studieneingangs- und Orientierungsphase")

## Literature

We roughly follow "Physik für Bachelors", J. Rybach, Hanser Verlag

Some fields, as for example relativity are oriented more at "Physics for Scientists & Engineers with modern Physics", D.C. Giancoli, Pearson International. The latter book is rather comprehensive and suited very well as a reference with many exercises related to practical problems.
