### Course description and aims

The course offers exercises related to the contents of Fundamentals of Mechanics 1 and 2. Students solve given problems and present their answers. This will allow them to understand mechanics and prepare them to solve more general problems in physics.

### Student learning outcomes

By completing this course, students will be able to:
1) Find mathematical solutions to problems in mechanics expressed by equations and explain the physical meanings of the solutions.
2) Acquire methods and approaches to solve more general problems in physics.

### Keywords

particles, system of particles, rigid bodies, Newton's laws of motion, conservation of momentum, conservation of energy, conservation of angular momentum, moment of inertia, inertial force

### Competencies that will be developed

 ✔ Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills ✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills

### Class flow

This course is conducted every two weeks alternately with Physics Experiment I. Students solve given problems and themselves explain their answers.
