What do you teach at the University of Freiburg?
Köhler — Prof. Oliver Ambacher offers a lecture on “Mechanics” as well as “Electrodynamics and Optics” at INATECH. During the lectures, I conduct experiments…
Rosenzweig — … and I offer the accompanying tutorials. I calculate tasks on the blackboard so that students can check their own results.
What do the students learn in your lectures?
Rosenzweig — They get an introduction to the basics of physics—on mechanics for instance, including Newton’s Laws, energy, momentum, angular momentum, the effect of surface tension, the theory of relativity and, not to forget, waves.
Köhler — In addition, Oliver Ambacher always dives into quantum mechanics, which follows its own laws; and the module “Electrodynamics and optics” mostly covers charges, currents, electromagnetic waves and, of course, optics.
