TextbooksMain source: F.W.Sears, M.W.Zemansky, and H.D.Young “University physics”, 7th edition, Addison-Wesley, 1992.
Earlier editions (authored by F.W.Sears and M.W.Zemansky) are OK; from later editions (authored by H.D.Young or H.D.Young and R. A. Freedman) some material has been removed but generally they are OK too.

Course policyThe exam will cover all of the material that was given in class and in home work. A biweekly problem set will be given to solve. You are required to submit on time at least 5 homework assignments (from 6 ones) via the electronic submission system in the website. In case you submit less, there will be a reduction of 2 points for each missing assignment. There will be no delays in submissions. Anyone who has justifiable reasons not to submit (as recognized by the university - miluim, hospitalization etc.) will receive a PTOR for the relevant assignment and it will not be calculated.
