Language:  Polish 
Type of course:  obligatory courses 
Prerequisites (description):  The basic knowledge of physics and mathematics at the high school level 
Short description: 
The aim of the course is to teach the chemistry students about the fundamental laws of physics in the field of classical mechanics. The course contains the lecture and classes with calculus. 
Full description: 
The lecture includes the demonstrations of experiments and theoretical explanation of physical phenomena. The lecture covers the following topics: types of the fundamental interactions in nature; coordinate systems; conservative and dissipative forces and interactions; structure of the matter; vector description of motion; rules of dynamics; conservation laws of energy and momentum; Gallileo transformation; inertial and noninertial reference systems; gravity center, reduced mass; equations of motion; potential energies of various interactions; central forces; oscillating motion, resonance; normal mode vibrations of simple molecules; spectrum, elements of Fourier analysis; dynamics of rigid body; inertia moments of molecules; waves, wave equation, dispersion, diffraction, coherence, interference; elements of relativistic mechanics. 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. Lecture + classes = 45 + 30 hours Tests (on thursday 17 19 h) 10 hours Domestic work 24 hours/week = 3060 hours Getting ready to tests and exam = 60 hours Together = 175190 hours
