Dr. German Zvi Källbermann

71031: Physics I (advanced)

Instructors: Dr. German Zvi Kälbermann, Prof. S. Nir

Course Level: undergraduate
Course Description: The course presents basic concepts in physics and provides the background which is required for other courses such as chemistry, biochemistry, botany, soil and agricultural sciences. The subjects covered are: A. Mechanics: kinematics and dynamics of particle motion; vectors in space; scalar and vector products; forces and equilibrium; linear momentum; work and energy; angular momentum; rotation of a rigid body in a plane; hydrostatics; surface tension phenomena; simple and viscous flow. B. Electrostatics: Coulomb's Law; electric potential and field; Gauss' Law; capacitors, conductors, dielectrics.

71032: Physics II (advanced)

Instructors: Dr. German Zvi Kälbermann, Prof. S. Nir

Course Level: undergraduate
Course Description: The course, which is a continuation of Physics I (advanced), reviews several areas of physics with an emphasis on biological applications. A. Electricity and Electromagnetism: current and current density; energy and power in electric circuits; membrane potential; magnetism; magnetic forces on moving charges; induced currents; electricity production and transmission; alternating currents. B. Waves: simple harmonic motion and wave characteristics; traveling and standing waves; waves on strings; sound waves; electromagnetic waves; interference and diffraction phenomena; Doppler effect; beats; geometrical and physical optics. C. Elements of Modern Physics: photoelectric effect; particle-wave duality and uncertainty principle; elements of quantum theory; atomic structure and spectra; fluorescence lasers; interaction of radiation with matter; radioactivity and radioisotopes; biological applications.
