Book Description

23 Jun 1994 0521445140 978-0521445146 illustrated edition
Physics by Example contains two hundred problems from a wide range of key topics, along with detailed, step-by-step solutions. By guiding the reader through carefully chosen examples, this book will help to develop skill in manipulating physical concepts. Topics dealt with include: statistical analysis, classical mechanics, gravitation and orbits, special relativity, basic quantum physics, oscillations and waves, optics, electromagnetism, electric circuits, and thermodynamics. There is also a section listing physical constants and other useful data, including a summary of some important mathematical results. In discussing the key factors and most suitable methods of approach for given problems, this book imparts many useful insights, and will be invaluable to anyone taking first or second year undergraduate courses in physics.

Review

"...Coherent text, well presented, an ideal introduction to practical and applied physics." The Bookwatch

"...general physics students will find the book stimulating and challenging. Recommended." Choice

"...an interesting and challenging compendium of 200 problems with solutions which cover the gamut of topics that might be considered 'basic' physics...a worthwhile addition..." Ralph Baierlein, American Journal of Physics

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent help for physics students 18 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I am a first-year undergraduate physics student, and find that while I can understand some concepts taught, I have difficulty in applying them to problems I meet in question-sheets and exams.
This book has really helped me. It contains 200 problems on a variety of subjects that I have met, and provides (unlike some other solution books) step-by-step easy to follow solutions to them all.
The book reinforces theory, and by showing full solutions allows you to understand the physics better.
I would recommend this book to all 1st year physics undergraduates.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great book to really learn Physics! 21 July 2011
Format:Paperback
This is a great book to really learn Physics.

As a previous reviewer has said, the standard is that expected on a Physics course for a 1st Year student at a UK University. However, it has the added utility in that, given the broad range of subjects covered, there will be plenty here both for second and third year students as well as for the interested reader in the sixth form.

Subjects covered include: Classical Dynamics, Gravitation, Special Relativity, Optics, Electromagnetism and circuits, and Thermodynamics. The author has also included problems on Dimensions and basic Statistics as applied
to experimental Physics.

What I like best about this book is that you can "dip into it at will" and find something of interest. One worth keeping even after you are done with the exams to which it is geared.

3.0 out of 5 stars Conventional 25 Mar 2009
By Fox
Format:Paperback
This book presents rather conventional problems. Some are of moderate difficulty.
If you are looking for not so usual problems see: 200 challenging physics problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly enlightening review of all that is physics. 26 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The role of a physicist as a problem-solver is probably among his most important roles. In fact, anyone having endured and possibly suffered through a college level physics curriculum must realize that success as a physicist depends crucially on the individual's ability to solve challenging yet practical problems on paper. It is to this end that I recommend a truly enlightening book by W.G. Rees titled Physics by Example: 200 Problems and Solutions. Covering all major areas of an undergraduate physics curriculum, with clear exposition and creative solutions to challenging problems, this book is bound to make its reader a problem-solver of the first rank. The problems have been selected to illuminate the most fundamental concepts in physics. The solutions are presented in a systematic and rigorous fashion that does not rely on intuition alone. The examples presented are typical of problems on final examinations for undergraduate courses. For those seriously pursuing the study of physics, this book serves beautifully to both solidify your understanding of physics and to test your preparation for exams.
