Course content

The course will give the student the ability to analyse and solve simple physical problems using mathematic modelling and methods. This ability to model practical problems is a basic prerequisite for further studies at CISK, and not least for the professional career as a cyber engineer. Physics forms the basis of several of the electrical and communication technology courses at CISK. The course builds on ING1502 Mathematical methods 1. 

This course is taught by a representative from NTNU/Gjøvik. This representative is responsible for implementing the course in accordance with this course description.

Course topics
• Mechanical oscillations
• Waves
• Electrical charges, forces and fields
• Maxwell’s equations
• Electrical fields and potentials
• Current and resistance
• Magnetic fields
• Induction
• Electromagnetic waves

Special conditions related to the assessments
If the total grade is failed, continuation will be a 5-hour exam that covers everything that is included in the assessment basis. Any appeal censorship on the first part of the total grade will be on all the tests in this part.

Learning outcome

Knowledge
After completion of the course, the cadet is able to:
• demonstrate elementary understanding of Maxwell’s equations
• describe the properties of electromagnetic waves and the electromagnetic spectrum

Skills
After completion of the course, the cadet is able to:
• perform calculations on mechanical/electrical oscillation systems with and without cushioning
• apply the wave equation
• calculate electrical field strength and electrical forces
• calculate electrical potential and voltage
• calculate and describe electrical/magnetic properties of resistors, capacitors and coils
• calculate magnetic fields and magnetic forces
• calculate magnetic flux and induced currents for practical applications

General competence
After completion of the course, the cadet is able to:
• demonstrate understanding of the application and significance of physics for engineering problems
