## Area of Study :

Overall aims of the course are: • Enrich students’ knowledge about physical concepts of properties of matter, heat and thermodynamics. • Train student about properties of matter, heat and thermodynamics application related to electrical engineering.

## Physics 1

1) Properties of matter: Units in the SI system and conversion of units-Dimensions –Dimension analysis-Elastic Properties of Matter- Stress-Strain-Young 's Modulus Shear Modulus- Properties of Fluids – Pressure inside a fluid- Bulk Modulus- Buoyant Force - Hydrodynamics- Continuity equation for a laminar flow- Bernoulli's equation- Pilot tube- Venture meter- Torriccilli's law- viscosity – Poiseuille 's law- Viscous drag and Stoke's law. 2) Heat and thermodynamics: Zeroth Law of thermodynamics - Quality of heat – First law of thermodynamics - Heat transfer mechanisms - Entropy and the second law of thermodynamics –some one way processes – Reversible and irreversible processes –Carnot cycle and Carnot engine - The absolute temperature scale – Principles of heat engines and refrigeration.

## a. Knowledge and Understanding:

 1- List units in the SI system of units for the physical parameters used in this course and use dimensions and dimension analysis to find their physical laws. 2- Describe the stress, strain and different elastic moduli for elastic matter. 3- Define pressure inside fluid, identify buoyancy forces for floating and emerged solid object in fluids. 4- Describe the continuity and Bernoulli s’ equations for a laminar flow (Pilot tube Venturi meter – Torriccilli’s law). 5- Recognize the zeroth, first and second law of thermodynamics. 6- Recognize the reversible and irreversible processes Carnot cycle and Carnot engine. 7- Describe the governing laws of thermodynamics

## b. Intellectual Skills:

 1- Think critically and analyze physical problems 2- Evaluate non measurable physical quantities that are not directly measurable. 3- Predict the action outcome of different bodies and systems. 4- Predict the appropriate volumes, areas, or contours that simplifies problems.

## c. Professional and Practical Skills:

 1- Apply Physical laws experimentally. 2- Measure the different physical parameters and perform experiments related to the properties of matter, thermodynamics and heat.

## d. General and Transferable Skills:

 1- Work effectively in a team. 2- Communicate effectively.
