Chemistry students do only the first part of the course, in fact for them the course is worth 6 credits. Mathematics students complete the program and for them the course is worth 10 credits.

Material provided through the e-learning platform and a text of general physics such as Gettys, "Physics I," Mc-Graw Hill, or S. Focardi, I. Massa, A. Uguzzoni, M.Villa, "General Physics - Mechanical and thermodynamics", Casa Editrice Ambrosiana.

Front lectures (80h).
The exercises are done with the help of Mc-Graw Hill's platform Connect.
