Prerequisites:

Knowkedge of elementary notions of mathematics: algebra, geometry, differential calculus,
integral calculus, simple differential equations.
Knowledge of units systems and of the fundamental laws of the
newtonian mechanics.
Basic knowledge of electrology and vacuum electrostatics. 
Target skills and knowledge:

At the end of the course, the student has to acquire basic notions of electromagnetism
and optics based on the experimental method. He/she will know how to deal with
problems related to the discussed topics, by correctly formulating and solving
the proposed exercises. He/she will also be able to provide a critical description
of the physics phenomena by formulating the relevant laws in a correct mathematical way. 
Examination methods:

written text covering theory and exercises. 
Course unit contents:

Electric properties of the matter: insulators and conductors. Dielectric characteristics. Laws of the electric conduction. Electromotive force. Electric current. Drift velocity of the free charges.
