Reading material

Obligatory literature

Literature developed by the Department

Notes

Course related information can be found on the website of the Department of Biophysics (http://biofizika.aok.pte.hu).

Recommended literature

As a base, any secondary school physics book is useful.

Conditions for acceptance of the semester

Maximum of 25 % absence allowed

Mid-term exams

No midterm exam.

Making up for missed classes

There is no option.

Exam topics/questions

Can be found on the website of the Department of Biophysics (http://biofizika.aok.pte.hu)
The seminar strengthens physics theoretical background and provide further understanding through evaluation of exercises (calculations) hence the written test at the end of the semester includes theoretical questions and exercises.
