Worked Examples in Physics contains two hundred problems from a wide range of key topics in physics, along with detailed, step-by-step solutions. By guiding the reader through carefully chosen examples and providing worked out solutions, this book will help the student to develop skill in manipulating physical concepts. Topics dealt with include: statistical analysis, classical mechanics, gravitation and orbits, special relativity, basic quantum physics, oscillations and waves, optics, electromagnetism, electric circuits, and thermodynamics. There is also a section listing physical constants and other useful data, including a summary of some important mathematical results. In discussing the relevant factors and most suitable methods of approach for given problems, this book imparts many useful insights, and will be invaluable to anyone taking first or second year undergraduate courses in physics.

Industry Reviews

"...Coherent text, well presented, an ideal introduction to practical and applied physics." The Bookwatch "...general physics students will find the book stimulating and challenging. Recommended." Choice "...an interesting and challenging compendium of 200 problems with solutions which cover the gamut of topics that might be considered 'basic' physics...a worthwhile addition..." Ralph Baierlein, American Journal of Physics
