Goals
The purpose of this course is to expose the students to Newton´s Laws of motion, to show them how these laws can be applied to various problems and to show how the resulting equations can be solved. The students are supposed to have taken the standart math and physics courses in their freshman and sophomore years.
Content
Newton´s law of motion, Momentum, Kinetic Energy, Potential energy, Force and conservative force, Basic force in nature, Harmonic oscilator, resonance, The gravitational force, Central force, Motion under central force, Inverse square law, Planet motion and Kepler laws

Learning Outcomes
1) Knows Newton´s laws of motion, understands and interprets them
2) Knows the kinetic energy, potantial energy and energy concenpts and can use them adequately.
3) Knows the concepts of force and conservative force, the fundamentals forces of nature and the appliacation range of each one of them.
4) Writes down the equation of motion for harmonic oscillators and solves them under various conditions; knows the concept of resonance.
5) Awares of the gravitational force, can calculate the gravitational force applied by a body of certain geometry to a point particle. Knows the gravitational potential and can calculate it for badies of various geometries.
6) Knows the central force and its basic properties.
7) Knows how to solve for the orbital equation of a particle under a central force.
8) Knows the orbit of a particle under an inverse square force field and the properties of the orbit.
9) Has knowledge about the motion of planets and Kepler´s laws of motion.
