IMPERIAL COLLEGE OF SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND MEDICINE DEPARTMENTS OF MATHEMATICS & PHYSICS ANCILLARY  MATHS & PHYSICS PART 1 (MPC1) LECTURE COURSE INFORMATION Client Department: CHEMISTRYChemistry Coordinator: Professor John SeddonLecture Course: MPC1  Mathematics & Physics for Chemists Part 1 Year : First (c. 40 students) Duration : Maths: 20 lectures+10 problem classes. Physics: 20 lectures +10 problem classes Terms : Maths: Autumn (20+10) & Physics: Spring (20+10) Lecturers : Maths: Dr O Makarenkov & Physics: Dr D Colling AIMS : To introduce Mathematics and Physics as logical and structured disciplines; to introduce students to mathematical and physical techniques that will be of value to them as professional chemists. OBJECTIVES: By the end of the MPC1 course, students will be able to:
COURSE TOPICS in chronological order are as follows: TOPICS NUMBER OF LECTURES MATHEMATICS 1 Functions and Limits 4 AUTUMN TERM 2 Differentiation and Integration 6 AUTUMN TERM 3 Polar Coordinates 2 AUTUMN TERM 4 Sequences, Series, Expansions 4 AUTUMN TERM 5 Ordinary differential equations 4 AUTUMN TERM PHYSICS 6 Mechanics 7 SPRING TERM 7 Simple Harmonic Motion 6 SPRING TERM 8 Waves 7 SPRING TERM TUTORIAL ARRANGEMENTS (i) A weekly problem class/tutorial. (ii) 6 Mathematics and 6 Physics problem sheets will be issued regularly. SYLLABUS: Mathematics: Mathematical Methods Functions: General properties (injective, surjective, even, odd, periodic, monotic, increasing and decreasing, inverse), intervals (open, closed), notation, plotting functions, discontinuities, limits and asymptotes. Sequences and Series: Convergence, divergence, ratio test, geometric series, power series, radius of convergence, Taylor series expansions, remainder terms, L’Hôpital’s rule. Differentiation and Integration: Definition, rules, stationary points, extrema, asymptotes, coordinate systems, partial differentiation, total differentials, practice of integration (partial fractions, substitution, integration by parts), improper integrals. Ordinary Differential Equations: First order; separable, linear, integrating factor, homogeneous, exact, second order, trial solution, characteristic equation, particular integral, complementary function, applications. SYLLABUS: Physics: Basic Mechanics, Vibrations and Waves Mechanics: Linear mechanics, Newton’s Laws of motion, conservation of energy and momentum, classical scattering, motion in a potential field, conservative forces. Rotational mechanics; angular momentum, torque, moment of inertia, central forces. Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM): Undamped oscillations, effect of resistive forces, forced oscillations and resonance, coupled oscillations – elementary considerations. Waves: One dimensional treatment of waves; differential form of the wave equation, velocity of waves in strings, gases and rods, wave superposition – standing waves and beating, group velocity and dispersion. Interference and diffraction; elementary considerations – optical interference from slits and Xray diffraction. ASSESSMENT:
Rubric: “Answer 4 questions from section A and 3 questions from section B. Use separate answer books for section A and section B. The same maximum mark is available for section A and section B.” The exam contributes 90% to the course assessment. (ii) Coursework: Either a 1hour progress test at the end of each term or an assessed question in each problem sheet or some combination of these, contributing 10% to the course assessment.
