Includes 640 solved problems.

This book is intended to provide students of applied physics with help in mastering those physical principles that underlie modern technology. A wide spectrum of topics is covered, so that the reader may select those which correspond to his particular needs. Both SI (metric) and British units are used.

Each chapter begins with an outline of its subject. The solved problems that follow are of two kinds: those that show how numerical answers are obtained to typical questions, and those that review important facts and ideas. The supplementary problems give the reader both a chance for practice and a means to gauge his progress.
