Goals To introduce to the basic concept of physics, to develop skills formulating certain physical quantities in areas of the mechanics and solving the problems. To illustrate the necessity and importance of physics for other branches of natural sciences and engineering through applications in real life, and industry and technology.
Contents Physics and Measurement; Vectors; Motion in One and Two Dimensions; Newton’s Laws of Motion; Circular Motion and Other Application of Newton’s Laws; Work and Kinetic Energy; Potential Energy and Conservation of Energy; Linear Momentum and Collisions; Rotation of a Rigid Object About Fixed Axis; Torque and Angular Momentum.
Work Placement(s) Absent

Number Learning Outcomes
1 Gains skills to make vectoral processing,
2 solves problems related to one- and two- dimensional motions,
3 defines motion of bodies in a system by the Newton's Motion Laws,
4 describes work, work-energy, conservation of energy and so, define translational motion of the bodies in the systems,
5 describes linear momentum and conservation of the momentum and solve problems of collisions,
6 calculates mass center and inertia moment,
7 defines motion of the rotating bodies about a certain axis,
8 describes torque and angular momentum,
9 determines circular motion of rigid object about fixed axis.

Mode of Delivery Face-to-Face
Planned Learning Activities & Teaching Methods It is lectured on the board for 3 hours/weeks by an instructor. To consolidate the subject, examples are solved in detailed by the instructor at the end of the each chapter.
Assessment Methods Two midterm exams are made during semester. The students performances are evaluated by the results of the midterm exams and final exam that is made at the end of the semester.
