A minimum grade of 4.5 in the Written Exams Activity is necessary to pass the subject.

 

Ordinary evaluation.

For the ordinary evaluation of this matter, two different facets will be considered: (i) written exams and (ii) work done in the Laboratory Sessions . The marks of these two tasks will be weighted according to the table above.

The attendance to the Laboratory Sessions and lab report are mandatory and the mark cannot be compensated in the Resit exam.

 

 Resit Exam.

The resit exam will consist of a single written exam of all the contents of this matter.

The mark from this resit exam will be 85% of the final mark of this matter.

The remaining 15% will correspond to the marks obtained in the work previously done in the Laboratory Sessions.

Experimental practice program

Laboratory practices

    Calorimetry. Dulong-Petit Law.

    Second Newton Law.

    Rotation Dynamics.

   

These three practices are considered to be essential in order to achieve the learning outcomes. Consequently, the assistance to these three practices is mandatory.

 It will be necessary to submit a practice report after the laboratory sessions for its qualification.
