Subject description


  • Enrollment in the study year.

Content (Syllabus outline):

  • Current and voltage, DC electrical circuits. Parts that save energy: coil and capacitor.
  • Calculating the harmonic grandeur, AC circuits. Resonant circuit. Transformer.
  • The longitudinal and transverse waves. Sound and electromagnetic waves. Wave equation. Telegraph equation.
  • Radiation of waves in space, communications equation, direction and surface.
  • Barriers and Fresnel zone ellipsoid, wedge attenuation barriers. Notable area courses and radar.
  • Refraction on the boundary of different materials. Collecting lens and the collecting mirror. Total reflection of waves. Waveguides.

Objectives and competences:

The course deals with the systematic and electrical engineering technology base on which multimedia is based. Awareness and use of material is reinforced with a pronounced shift from practical experiments to the physical phenomenon. The goal is to get a deeper knowledge of high school physics with an emphasis on events that are facing media technologist. The course develops science-oriented analytical-synthetic thinking. Students learn about the basics of classical electrical, sound waves and electromagnetic waves (radio and optics) with an emphasis on treatment and understanding of communication and multimedia systems. The course also shows the physical and technological limitations of broadcasting systems from the standpoint of radio wave propagation and noise. In the lab students are introduced to basic methods of measuring physical quantities. The subject is the basis for practical work and understanding of technical subjects in higher levels of the study program.

Intended learning outcomes:

The course will enable students to:

  • expand the general knowledge of physics;
  • Understanding of technology and the basic laws of (electro) techniques;
  • recognize the technological capabilities of modern multimedia devices;
  • recognize the physical limitations of future multimedia devices.

Learning and teaching methods:

  • lectures,
  • work in pairs in the lab.
