Waves, Fluids, Sound, Heat, and Light (Physics with Calculus)

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.Emphasis on understanding the connection between the math and the concepts.Explaining key steps in the math.Hints at the back (in addition to an answer key) help walk you through the solution. The hints address common questions. Designed to help students.

Each chapter concisely reviews key information.Relevant formulas are provided and explained.Handy charts help you quickly understand the symbols and units.Step-by-step examples serve as a handy guide.Stuck on a solution? Check the hints section at the back of the book.The answer to each problem is given at the bottom of the page for easy access.

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

Description
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. Physics with calculus, Volume 2 (electricity and magnetism), covered in detail. Physics with calculus, Volume 3 (waves, fluids, sound, heat, and light), covered in detail.

Description
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.
