 Course history

Introduction
This course is made of two parts. Both parts give students fundamental scientific knowledge and skills that provide the scientific foundation for working with the two technological courses. The themes are important for enabling computer scientists to participate in discussions about technology and science. In addition, the work in this course will provide training in mathematical software and enable students to run calcuations.
Required preliminary courses
None.
Learning outcomes
After completing the course, the student is expected to have achieved the following learning outcomes defined in terms of knowledge, skills and general competence:
Knowledge
The student is capable of:
 explaining Newton’s three laws of motion and how they determine the movement of objects
 explaining the concept of work as a line integral of power and energy conservation
 explaining the concepts of conservative and nonconservative force and placing them in the context of the first law of thermodynamics
 explaining the oscillation equation and its solutions for simple cases, and describing oscillations
 stating the wave equation and its analytical solutions for simple cases, and describing wave movement
 explaining Fourier’s law for heat conduction and its connection to the heat conduction equation and the second law of thermodynamics
 explaining basic electromagnetic units, concepts and phenomena
 solving the most common ordinary and partial differential equations that occur in physics, analytically and/or numerically, with the help of wellknown algorithms
 explaining and solving important chemical equations in stoichiometry
 explaining basic principles and notions within chemical kinetics and chemical equilibrium
 explaining basic electrochemical principles
Skills
The student is capable of:
 calculating particle trajectories in physics, both analytically and numerically
 solving the oscillation equation for simple cases, analytically and numerically, and visualising the solutions
 solving the onedimensional wave equation numerically, and visualising the solutions
 solving the onedimensional temperature equation numerically, and visualising the solutions
 using mathematical and numerical methods to describe and analyse physical phenomena, including presenting quantitative solutions to problems in mechanics, electromagnetism, thermal physics, the physics of solids, and fluid dynamics
 explaining limitations in the calculations mentioned above
 carrying out simple chemical calculations in stoichiometry
 carrying out simple chemical calculations in electrochemistry such as calculations of cell potential, current, consumption and production of chemicals in electrolysis
 carrying out simple calculations of reactants and products present in gaseous equilibrium, precipitation reactions and acidbase equilibrium
General competence
The student:
 is capable of understanding and communicating physical and chemical principles and methods, issues and solutions, both orally and in writing
 is capable of communicating with other professionals with a natural science background on physical and chemical matters
 has insight into the importance of natural sciences for engineering developments
Teaching and learning methods
Lectures and exercises. The exercises are based on the students’ own work, supervised by the lecturer.
Course requirements
The following coursework is compulsory and must be approved before the student can sit the exam:
 1 individual written assignment in the physics part, based on the use of software
Assessment
Individual digital home exam, 4 hours including uploading and scanning. Physics part counts 70 %, chemistry part 30 %.
The exam result can be appealed.
Permitted exam materials and equipment
All aids are allowed, except communication with others.
Grading scale
Grade scale Pass/Fail.
Examiners
One internal examiner. External examiners are used regularly.
