Fully Solved Examples from Physics with Calculus (Waves, Fluids, Sound, Heat, and Light)
Chris McMullen, Ph.D.
Learn physics from a university instructor with over 20 years of experience teaching calculus-based (and trig-based) physics in California, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania.
How does this book help you learn physics?
Clear explanations; communication is vital toward learning physics.Explaining key steps in the math.Explaining concepts as they relate to the problem. Designed to help students.
Each example is fully solved with explanations.Examples were selected to illustrate important problem-solving strategies.
Topics covered in Volume 3: simple harmonic motion, springs, pendulum, waves, Doppler effect, shock waves, standing waves density, pressure, Archimedes’ principle, fluid dynamics, Pascal’s law, Bernoulli’s equation heat, temperature, thermal expansion, ideal gas, van der Waals fluid, thermodynamics, heat engines light waves, reflection, refraction, Snell’s law, total internal reflection, rainbows, prisms thin lenses, spherical mirrors, diffraction, interference, gratings, polarization Malus’s law sound waves
Both classic and new problems are included.
Some classic problems/examples include:
standing waves along a string or in an air column (presented with a conceptually motivated approach)thermal conduction through standard geometriesthermodynamic heat engines (detailed coverage)how a rainbow is formed and why the sky appears blueSnell’s law applied to a prismthe final image formed after light refracts through multiple lensesmultiple slit interferencelight passing through multiple polarizers with different orientations

Physics with calculus, Volume 1 (motion), covered in detail (motion, Newton’s laws, circular motion, work/energy, satellites, center of mass, collisions, rotation). Over 100 fully solved examples of calculus-based physics problems. These are actually the solutions to the problems from Essential Calculus-based Physics Study Guide Workbook. Trig-based physics, Volume 1 (motion). It’s basically the calculus-based physics book without any of the calculus. Over 100 fully solved examples of trig-based physics problems. These are actually the solutions to the problems from Essential Trig-based Physics Study Guide Workbook. Over 100 fully solved examples of calculus-based physics problems, Volume 2 (electricity and magnetism). Over 100 fully solved examples of calculus-based physics problems, Volume 3 (waves, fluids, sound, heat, and light).

Essential skills from physics with calculus. Volume 1 covers motion. In-depth coverage of calculus-based physics. There is currently just one volume of the “Advanced Introduction,” whereas there are 3 volumes of “Essential Calculus-based Physics.” Modern physics covers special relativity, blackbody radiation, the Compton effect, the photoelectric effect, Bohr’s model, Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, and Schrodinger’s equation. Detailed and in-depth coverage of thermal physics across undergraduate physics.
