Synopsis: This text will strengthen a student's ability to apply the laws of physics to practical situations and problems that yield more easily to intuitive insight than to complex mathematics. These problems, chosen almost exclusively from classical (non-quantum) physics, are posed in accessible nontechnical language and require the student to select the right framework in which to analyze the situation. The book will be invaluable to undergraduates preparing for "general physics" papers. Some physics professors will even find the more difficult questions challenging. The mathematical prerequisites are minimal and do not go beyond elementary calculus. This intriguing book of physics problems will prove instructive, challenging and fun.

Book Description: This book will strengthen a student's grasp of the laws of physics by applying them to practical problems that yield more easily to intuitive insight than brute-force methods or complex mathematics. The two hundred questions are intriguingly posed in non-technical language. The level of sophistication needed to tackle most of the problems is that of the exceptional school student, the good undergraduate, or the competent graduate student. It is hoped that all students of physics (and even some physics professors) will find the problems fascinating, challenging and fun.

Book Description Cambridge University Press, 2015. Softcover. Condition: New. 5th or later edition. 200 Puzzling Physics Problems is aimed at strengthening a student`s grasp of the laws of physics by applying them to situations that arc practical, and to problems that yield more easily to intuitive insight than to brute-force methods and complex mathematics. The problems are chosen almost exclusively from classical (i.e. non-quantum) physics, but are no easier for that. For the most part, these problems are intriguingly posed in accessible non-technical language. This requires the student to select the right framework in which to analyse the situation and to make decisions about which branches of physics are involved. The general level of sophistication needed to tackle most of the 200 problems is that of the exceptional school student, the good undergraduate, or the competent graduate student. The book should be valuable to undergraduate preparing for `general physics` papers, either on their own or in classes or seminars designed for this purpose. It is even hoped that some physics professors will find the more difficult questions challenging. By contrast, the mathematical demands made are minimal, and do not go beyond elementary calculus. This intriguing book of physics problems should prove not only instructive and challenging, but also fun. Printed Pages: 272. Seller Inventory # 12382
