1000 Solved Problems in Modern Physics

This book is targeted mainly to the undergraduate students of USA, UK and other European countries, and the M.Sc of Asian countries, but are going to be found useful for the graduate students, 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 Tebrez over several years, and is meant to help the scholars in their assignments and examinations.

The book covers a wide spectrum of disciplines in Modern Physics, and is especially supported the particular examination papers of UK and the Indian Universities. The selected problems display an outsized variety and conform to syllabi which are currently being used in various countries.

The book is divided into ten chapters. Each chapter begins with basic concepts containing a group of formulae and explanatory notes for quick reference, followed by variety of problems and their detailed solutions.

The writer of this book “1000 Solved Problems in Modern Physics” is Ahmad A. Kamal

The solutions are neither pedantic nor terse. The approach is straight forward and step-bystep solutions are elaborately provided. More importantly the relevant formulas used for solving the issues are often located within the beginning of every chapter. There are approximately 150 line diagrams for illustration.

Basic quantum physics , elementary calculus, vector calculus and Algebra are the prerequisites. The areas of Nuclear and high-energy physics are emphasized as revolutionary.

It is a pleasure to thank Javid for the majority of typing and suggestions and Maryam for proof reading. I am indebted to Muniba for the line drawings, to Suraiya, Maqsood and Zehra for typing and editing.

I am grateful to the Universities of UK and India for permitting me to use their question papers cited in the text to CERN photo service for the duvet page to McGraw-Hill and Co: for a few of diagrams from Quantum Mechanics, L.I. Schiff, 1955, to Cambridge University Press
