The author obtained his Doctoral degree from University of Bristol, U.K. under the supervision of Emeritus Professor Dr.D.H. Perkins, FRS. The author has worked in high-energy physics for a number of years using photographic emulsions exposed at CERN. He has also used low-energy facilities at Nuclear Science Center at New Delhi. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Ottawa, visitor to CERN, visiting professor at the University of Tebrez. He has published 40 research papers in International Journals and gave lectures on Nuclear physics, particle physics, quantum mechanics, classical mechanics, mathematical physics, atomic and molecular physics and relativity at undergraduate and graduate levels at various universities for several years. He was a Professor and Head of the Department of Physics and Chairman, Board of studies at the Osmania University.
Do you have a handle on basic physics terms and concepts, but your problem-solving skills could use some static friction? Physics I Workbook For Dummies helps you build upon what you already know to learn how to solve the most common physics problems with confidence and ease.
Physics I Workbook For Dummies gets the ball rolling with a brief overview of the nuts and bolts of physics (i.e. converting measure, counting signification figures, applying math skills to physics problems, etc.) before getting in the nitty gritty. If you're already a pro you can skip this section and jump right into the practice problems. There, you'll get the lowdown on how to take your problem-solving skills to a whole new plane—without ever feeling like you've been left spiraling down a black hole.Easy-to-follow instructions and practical tips Complete answer explanations are included so you can see where you went wrong (or right) Covers the ten most common mistakes people make when solving practice physics problems
When push comes to shove, this friendly guide is just what you need to set your physics problem-solving skills in motion.
How to Solve Physics Problems will prepare you for physics exams by focusing on problem-solving. You will learn to solve physics problems naturally and systematically--and in a way that will stick with you. Not only will it help you with your homework, it will give you a clear idea of what you can expect to encounter on exams.400 physics problems thoroughly illustrated and explained Math review for the right start New chapters on quantum physics; atoms, molecules, and solids; and nuclear physics
