Concepts of Physics explains the different theories and concepts in an easy-to-understand way, making it popular among students. H. C. Verma s book is an all-inclusive theoretical and conceptual guide that covers a vast range of topics. It is an ideal book not only for pre-college students but also for those appearing for competitive exams in the field of engineering and medicine. It is a book that aims to comprehensively guide the students in various aspects of physics thus, making them fully equipped to answer any type of questions that may come in the exams. Volume 2 of the Concepts of Physics starts with a chapter on Heat and Temperature. It moves on to explain the Kinetic Theory of Gases. The concepts of Calorimetry, Law of Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, Specific Heat Capacities of Gases are discussed in the subsequent chapters. There are separate chapters on Gauss s Law, Electric Field and Potential, and Capacitors. The book also features chapters and detailed explanations on Electric Current in Conductors, Thermal and Chemical effects of Electric Current, and Magnetic Field. The author also elucidates on the concept of Permanent Magnets, Electromagnetic Induction and Electromagnetic Waves. He further stresses on the Magnetic Field due to a current, Magnetic Properties of Matter, Alternating Current and Electric Current through Gases. In the last chapters of the book, the author details out on Bohr s Model and Physics of the Atom, Photoelectric Effect and Wave Particle Duality, X-rays, The Nucleus, Theory of Relativity and, Semiconductors and Semiconductor Devices. Each chapter has been intricately dealt with in the book. It is an ideal study book for all kinds of competitive exams like IIT-JEE and different types of state level exams for engineering and medicine.

H. C. Verma is a physicist, lecturer and author.He is an experimental physicist, and is also an educationist and lecturer. He frequently gives lectures on India s heritage and cultural values, though his chief areas of interest lies in physics. He obtained his doctoral degree from IIT-Kanpur and began his career as a lecturer at the Patna University. Presently he is a Physics lecturer at IIT-Kanpur. He has also contributed a great deal to improve the quality of education provided to the underprivileged.Review:
verma is considered as one of the most important book in physics for students whoare preparing for iit jee and other competitive exams.the theory related questions are very intersting in verma i was thankful to flipkart for selling this book for cheap price less than the market value --By pavan nath on Dec 21, 2011
The theory in the book is so precise, logical and fun to read that even a beginner can understand most of the concepts by himself. Questions for short answers are a amazing feature of this book,for they touch every minute points of understanding. --By Harshdeep Gupta on Nov 30, 2011
After going through the first part my eagerness to go through the second one made me to purchase this book . this book is just awesome it clears all fundamentals and basics just like a good teacher , it has everything packed inside the 450 pages. I recommend it to all as its necessary for your jee preparation as well as for strength your "concepts of physics. --By amit das on Apr 23, 2012
