Essential Calculus-based Physics Study Guide Workbook: Waves, Fluids, Sound, Heat, and Light (Learn Physics with Calculus Step-by-Step) (Volume 3)

Essential Calculus-based Physics Study Guide Workbook: Waves, Fluids, Sound, Heat, and Light (Learn Physics with Calculus Step-by-Step) (Volume 3) Lowest new price: $18.08
List price: $18.99
Author: Chris McMullen

LEVEL: This book covers waves, fluids, sound, heat, and light from physics with calculus at the university level. (If instead you're looking for a trig-based physics book, search for ISBN 1941691188.) Note that the calculus-based edition includes all of material from the trig-based book, plus coverage of the calculus-based material. In this volume, the calculus is mostly limited to thermal physics.

DESCRIPTION: This combination of physics study guide and workbook focuses on essential problem-solving skills and strategies:

  • Fully solved examples with explanations show you step-by-step how to solve standard university physics problems.
  • Handy charts tabulate the symbols, what they mean, and their SI units.
  • Problem-solving strategies are broken down into steps and illustrated with examples.
  • Answers, hints, intermediate answers, and explanations are provided for every practice exercise.
  • Terms and concepts which are essential to solving physics problems are defined and explained.
VOLUME: This volume covers waves, fluids, sound, heat, and light, including simple harmonic motion, standing waves, the Doppler effect, Archimedes' principle, the laws of thermodynamics, heat engines, principles of optics, Snell's law, thin lenses, spherical mirrors, diffraction, interference, polarization, and more.

AUTHOR: The author, Dr. Chris McMullen, has over 20 years of experience teaching university physics in California, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Louisiana (and has also taught physics to gifted high school students). Dr. McMullen currently teaches physics at Northwestern State University of Louisiana. He has also published a half-dozen papers on the collider phenomenology of superstring-inspired large extra dimensions. Chris McMullen earned his Ph.D. in particle physics from Oklahoma State University (and his M.S. in physics from California State University, Northridge).

Dr. McMullen is well-known for:
  • engaging physics students in challenging ideas through creativity
  • breaking difficult problems down into manageable steps
  • providing clear and convincing explanations to subtle issues
  • his mastery of physics and strong background in mathematics
  • helping students become more fluent in practical math skills
SOLUTIONS: The back of the book includes a detailed section of hints, intermediate answers, final answers, and explanations to help you solve each problem one step at a time. It's like having a physics tutor in the back of the book. (However, if you would prefer complete solutions, search for ISBN 1941691218.)

USES: This study guide workbook can be used to:
  • learn how to solve fundamental problems in physics with calculus
  • find fully-solved examples of standard physics problems
  • develop fluency in physics via practice exercises that include answers, hints, and explanations
  • quickly find the most essential physics terms, concepts, and formulas
  • prepare for the AP physics exam
  • review for standardized exams, such as AP Physics or the fundamentals of the GRE.
CALCULATOR: Every problem in this book can be solved without the aid of a calculator. This is handy for students who will take a standardized exam like the GRE Physics, which doesn't allow a calculator. (It's also a handy skill to be able to estimate an answer without relying on a calculator.)

Light: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)

Light: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) Lowest new price: $6.49
Lowest used price: $7.78
List price: $11.95
Author: Ian A. Walmsley
Brand: Walmsley Ian A

Light enables us to see the world around us. Our sense of sight provides us with direct information about space and time, the physical arrangement of the world, and how it changes. This almost universal shared sensation of vision has led to a fascination with the nature and properties of light across the ages. But the light we see is just a small part of the whole spectrum of electromagnetic radiation, ranging from radio waves to gamma rays.

In this Very Short Introduction Ian Walmsley discusses early attempts to explain light, and the development of apparently opposing particulate and wave theories by scientists such as Isaac Newton and Christiaan Huygens. He shows how light was recognized as an electromagnetic wave in the 19th century, and the development of the quantum mechanics view of wave-particle duality in the 20th century. He also describes the many applications of light, domestic and scientific, such as microwaves, DVDs, and lasers. We now use the whole range of electromagnetic radiation to peer both into the human body and deep into space. Turning to the future of optics, Walmsley concludes by looking at some of the most exciting new developments using quantum light sources in communications and computing.
