Annotation -
The subject of Physics (B) builds on the subject of Physics (A) and is devoted to selected topics from electromagnetic field theory, quantum mechanics, solid state physics, nuclear physics and elementary particle physics. Content of subject is modified with respect to the needs of downstream courses of the Bachelor's study program.
Last update: Hofmann Jaroslav (11.07.2013)
Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

Explain the essence of selected physical phenomena in the area of electromagnetic fields, quantum mechanics, solid state physics, nuclear physics and elementary particle physics

Apply physical laws in the study of related objects

Separately deal with physical tasks, which are the basis for a follow-up study

To use computer technology with a suitable software (for example. MAPLE) to deal with the more complex physical tasks
