schedule and series of Fyziklani
At the beginning of the contest at 10:00 CET each team receives 5 tasks. Three from Mechanics, one from Thermodynamics and one from Astronomy. During the contest, other series will become available as shown in the scheme below. At the end of the competition, the teams can have up to 9 tasks available, unless they finish some of the series.
Using the special card Add one problem from a series, another task from chosen series will be revealed and during the rest of the competition, the team will be able to solve one more task in the series. That means that the team still gets another task for solving one of those revealed (unless it is the last one in the series). Choose wisely, which series you use it for. For solving a whole series, you obtain bonus points.
All times are in CET (Central European Time) UTC +01:00. For more information and current time, visit https://time.is/CET.
Friday 12. 02.

Popular science lectures
- will be in Czech and English as well, be followed gradually (without time overlap) in a relevant language
- doc.RNDr. Stanislav Daniš, Ph.D. - 125 years of radioactivity discoveries (in Czech) - A brief but very interesting review of everything that has happened in the world of radioactivity - from the radiation from uranium salts almost to the present. We will try to calculate the decay energy of an alpha particle and find out what amount of heat is released during the process. We will also talk about fission reaction discovery.
- RNDr. Martin Veis, Ph.D. - Magneto-optics and its applications in real life (in English) - Let´s see currently the very progressing and modern branch of physics-magneto-optics, which is on the interface between electromagnetism, optics and the material physics. You will also find that even such a young branch has a lot of practical applications in the world of science, engineering, materials, or medicine.
- FYKOS organizers (RNDr. Karel Kolář, Ph.D./Mgr. Petr Lukeš) - Wolfram Mathematica (in czech/english) - You will learn why, what and (briefly) how to use the popular academic software Wolfram Mathematica already as a high school student, and later during your university study and professional life.
