Short description: 
Basic knowledge of physics dealing with electricity and magnetism, necessary for the student of Chemistry, skills of simple problems solving and performing the appropriate calculations. 

Full description: 
The aim of the course is to teach the students of chemistry about the fundamental laws of physics in the field of electricity and magnetics. The course contains the lecture and classes with calculus. The lecture includes the demonstrations of experiments and theoretical explanation of physical phenomena. The contents of the course covers the following subjects: Electrostatic field of systems of electric charges,  electric dipole: permanent and induced.  Gauss's law. Dielectrics, polarization. Conductors, capacitors, electric circuits, Kirchoff's laws. Magnetic field, due to moving charge, due to wire with current. Magnetic moment. Motion of a charge in magnetic field. Magnetic properties of matter; diamagnetism, paramagnetism, ferromagnetism. Electromagnetic induction law, selfinduction, alternating currents. Maxwell's equations, wave equation, electromagnetic waves. Maxwell's equations in a material medium. Propagation of electromagnetic waves in a material medium; reflection, refraction, diffraction, interference, coherence, state of a wave polarization.  Interaction of an electromagnetic wave with molecules; emission, absorption, index of refraction The classes with calculus are the mathematical illustration to the lecture. The students are taught how to solve the problems, discussed during the lecture, by use of the known mathematical apparatus. The classes take place in small groups of students, which solve the tasks together. Class attendance is compulsory. Three absences subject to excuse are allowed. Lecture + classes = 60 hours Tests = 10 hours Domestic work 24 hours/week = 3060 hours Getting ready to tests and exam = 60 hours Together = 160190 hours
