LEVEL: This book covers waves, fluids, sound, heat, and light from trig-based physics at the university level. (If instead you¿re looking for a calculus-based physics book, search for ISBN 1941691196.)DESCRIPTION: This combination of physics study guide and workbook focuses on essential problem-solving skills and strategies: Fully solved examples with explanations show you step-by-step how to solve standard university physics problems. Handy charts tabulate the symbols, what they mean, and their SI units. Problem-solving strategies are broken down into steps and illustrated with examples. Answers, hints, intermediate answers, and explanations are provided for every practice exercise. Terms and concepts which are essential to solving physics problems are defined and explained.VOLUME: This volume covers waves, fluids, sound, heat, and light, including simple harmonic motion, standing waves, the Doppler effect, Archimedes¿ principle, the laws of thermodynamics, heat engines, principles of optics, Snell¿s law, thin lenses, spherical mirrors, diffraction, interference, polarization, and more.
