Multi-electron systems. Angular momentum and magnetic momentum of electrons in the electron shell. Nuclear physics. Nuclear reactions. Nuclear energetics. Dosimetry.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming)
Learning outcomes
This course follows the basic course FI. It tryies to enlarge its sylabus slightly, deepen it in certain fields and precise it but not at the cost of higher complexity, if possible. Analogies and connections across the covered physical areas is being stressed. In the discussion sections students solve selected and illustrative physical problems.
Students learn the basics of physical thinking. They will learn to understand precise meaning of the basic physicical quantities including the feeling for their quantitative properties. They will learn to solve even more complicated problems dividing them into smaller steps in the sence of basic physical laws with the validity of which they are certain.
Prerequisites
Course FI completed by an examination. Interest in physics.
