Princeton Guide to Advanced Physics

Author: Alan C. Tribble

From classical mechanics to general relativity, the key principles in all areas of physics are surveyed in this one handy volume. Here Alan Tribble addresses the needs of students and practicing physicists alike. He starts with a review of mathematical methods and then summarizes the most widely used concepts in physics, detailing derivations and applications. With its mix of theory, application, and solved problems, Advanced Physics enables a student to grasp quickly the fundamentals of the field while providing physicists, engineers, and mathematicians with an ideal reference for locating critical formulas or reviewing mathematical details. One of Tribble's goals is to help students, particularly those preparing for comprehensive examinations, to develop and retain a broad base of knowledge and an in-depth understanding of the fundamental physical principles. Until now, reaching this goal has been a time-consuming and difficult task for the student, partly because so many texts have omitted key steps in crucial derivations or have assigned these derivations as exercises. By gathering widespread information into one highly accessible format, Advanced Physics will become an invaluable study aid, will serve readily as a text in a review course or as a supplemental text in higher-level courses, and will make for an indispensable reference for professionals throughout their careers.

Wouldn't it be great if there were a physics book that showed you how things work instead of telling you how? Finally, with Head First Physics, there is. This comprehensive book takes the stress out of learning mechanics and practical physics by providing a fun and engaging experience, especially for students who "just don't get it." Head First Physics offers a format that's rich in visuals and full of activities, including pictures, illustrations, puzzles, stories, and quizzes -- a mixed-media style proven to stimulate learning and retention. One look will convince you: This isn't mere theory, this is physics brought to life through real-world scenarios, simple experiments, and hypothetical projects. Head First Physics is perfect for anyone who's intrigued by how things work in the natural world. You'll quickly discover that physics isn't a dry subject. It's all about the world we live in, encompassing everything from falling objects and speeding cars, to conservation of energy and gravity and weightlessness, and orbital behavior. This book: Helps you think like a physicist so you can understand why things really work the way they do Gives you relevant examples so you can fully grasp the principles before moving on to more complex concepts Designed to be used as a supplement study guide for the College Board's Advanced Placement Physics B Exam Introduces principles for the purpose of solving real-world problems, not memorization Teaches you how to measure, observe, calculate -- and yes -- how to do the math Covers scientific notation, SI units, vectors, motion, momentum conservation, Newton's Laws, energy conservation, weight and mass, gravitation and orbits, circular motion and simple harmonic motion, and much more If "Myth Busters" and other TV programs make you curious about our physical world -- or if you're a student forced to take a physics course -- now you can pursue the subject without the dread of boredom or the fear that it will be over your head. Head First Physics comes to rescue with an innovative, engaging, and inspirational way to learn physics!

Advanced Engineering Physics

Author: Harish Parthasarathy

Publisher: Anshan Pub

ISBN: 9781905740031

Category: Science

Page: 679

View: 9640

This book is intended to serve as a textbook for courses in engineering physics, and as a reference for researchers in theoretical physics with engineering applications introduced via study projects, which will be useful to researchers in analog and digital signal processing. The material has been drawn together from the author's extensive teaching experience, interpreting the classical theory of Landau and Lifschitz. The methodology employed is to describe the physical models via ordinary or partial differential equations, and then illustrate how digital signal processing techniques based on discretization of derivatives and partial derivatives can be applied to such models.

A perception exists that physics is a sophisticated discipline accessible only to the brightest students. To dispel this notion, the authors created a program that makes college-level physics attainable to average high school students. Additionally, its distinctive concept-building approach allows high performing student to flourish. Regardless of experience, all physics teachers can confidently prepare students for success with this product. The unique program design also makes it ideal for the home-schooled student. This program has proven, through field-testing, that upon successful completion, students are rewarded with genuine conceptual understanding, a real sense of accomplishment, and the tangible benefit of college credit. What makes this program unique? As opposed to chapter-by-chapter formats of traditional textbooks, it integrates concepts and employs constant review, allowing students to strengthen understanding over time. The 100-lesson format develops concepts in a progressive, spiraling manner. Concepts are introduced at a fundamental level developing further in later lessons, encouraging incremental learning. Problem sets that accompany each lesson represent an important feature that promotes confidence and understanding. Each set includes topics from current and previous lessons, making each set comprehensive. As the course progresses, the problems increase in complexity and depth, enabling students to master and connect concepts. All tests are comprehensive and include multiple choice and free response sections. The tests continuously increase in difficulty, building to AP-level rigor. The scoring rubrics and alternate forms of each test allow teachers and students to diagnose weaknesses and focus learning. The program also includes a set of ten descriptive physics questions after every fifth lesson, which promotes thought and expose misconceptions, while requiring consideration of concepts from a qualitative and conceptual perspective. The Teacher Resource CD contains detailed keys for problem sets, quizzes and tests.
