Learning outcomes of the course unit
After completing this course student knows the fundamental laws of fluid mechanics and thermophysics, can describe phenomenona by using quantities and their dependences and make justified solutions of related problems, can calculate pressure, force and buoyancy in a fluid, can analyze fluid flow and effects of fluid resistance, knows the main laws of thermophysics and can predict the natural behaviour of a thermal system, can determine the state of a system in a basic thermophysical change, and can apply heat transfer in practical situations.
