9780132273596: Physics for Scientists & Engineers Vol. 2 (Chs 21-35) (4th Edition)

Key Message: This book aims to explain physics in a readable and interesting manner that is accessible and clear, and to teach readers by anticipating their needs and difficulties without oversimplifying. Physics is a description of reality, and thus each topic begins with concrete observations and experiences that readers can directly relate to. We then move on to the generalizations and more formal treatment of the topic. Not only does this make the material more interesting and easier to understand, but it is closer to the way physics is actually practiced.

Key Topics:

ELECTRIC CHARGE AND ELECTRIC FIELD, GAUSS’S LAW, ELECTRIC POTENTIAL, CAPACITANCE, DIELECTRICS, ELECTRIC ENERGY STORAGE,  ELECTRIC CURRENTS AND RESISTANCE,  DC CIRCUITS, MAGNETISM, SOURCES OF MAGNETIC FIELD, ELECTROMAGNETIC INDUCTION AND FARADAY’S LAW, INDUCTANCE, ELECTROMAGNETIC OSCILLATIONS, AND AC CIRCUITS, MAXWELL’S EQUATIONS AND ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES, LIGHT: REFLECTION AND REFRACTION, LENSES AND OPTICAL INSTRUMENTS, THE WAVE NATURE OF LIGHT; INTERFERENCE,  DIFFRACTION AND POLARIZATION,

 Market Description: This book is written for readers interested in learning the basics of physics.
