Physics with Answers contains 500 problems covering the full range of introductory physics and its applications to many other subjects, along with clear, step-by-step solutions to each problem. No calculus is required. Students often have difficulty in solving practical problems after a subject is introduced in class. This book bridges that gap - it contains every type of problem likely to be encountered at this level, so by attempting these exercises and learning from the solutions, students will gain confidence in solving class problems and improve their grasp of physics. The book is split into two parts. The first contains the problems, together with useful summaries of the main results needed for solving them. The second part gives full solutions to each problem, often accompanied by thoughtful comments. Subjects covered include statics, Newton's Laws, circular motion, gravitation, electricity and magnetism, electric circuits, liquids and gases, heat and thermodynamics, light and waves, atomic physics, and relativity. The problems are drawn from many fields, including physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, medicine, and architecture.
The book will be invaluable to anyone taking an introductory course in physics, whether at college or pre-university level.
'A high standard of questions and answers is maintained throughout the book ... one of the best features of this book is that it reinforces the physics rather than just the maths. it draws on applications from other disciplines and demonstrates the use of physics in real life rather than just the physics classroom.'
