This book,1000 Solved Problems in Classical Physics by the same author and published by Springer Verlag in order that bulk of the courses for undergraduate curriculum are covered. It is targeted mainly at the undergraduate students of USA, UK and other European countries and therefore the M.Sc. students of Asian countries, but will be found useful for the graduate students, students preparing for graduate record examination (GRE), teachers and tutors.
This is a by-product of lectures given at the Osmania University, University of Ottawa and University of Tebriz over several years and is intended to assist the students in their assignments and examinations.
The writer of this book “1000 Solved Problems in Classical Physics” is Ahmad A. Kamal
The book covers a wide spectrum of disciplines in classical physics and is especially supported the particular examination papers of UK and therefore the Indian universities. the chosen problems display an outsized variety and conform to syllabi which are currently being used in various countries.
The book is divided into 15 chapters. Each chapter begins with basic concepts and a set of formulae used for solving problems for quick reference, followed by a number of problems and their solutions. The problems are selected and are managed in chapter-wise. The solutions are neither pedantic nor terse. The approach is straightforward and step-by-step solutions are elaborately provided. There are approximately 450 line diagrams, one fourth of them in colour for illustration. A subject index and a problem index are provided at the end of the book.
The areas of mechanics and electromagnetism are emphasized. No book on problems can claim to exhaust the variability within the limited space. An attempt is made to include the important sorts of problems at the undergraduate level. I am grateful to the universities of UK and India for permitting me to use their question papers; to R.W. Norris and W. Seymour, Introduction to Theoretical Mechanics, McGraw Hill Book Co. Inc, 1954, for one problem; and Google Images for the cover page.
