Covering all GCSE specifications, this tried and tested series has been fully updated to match the (9-1) GCSE Physics specifications for 2016, as well as international specifications. With a focus on science, concepts develop naturally, engaging students and enabling them to get a thorough understanding of Physics.
From classical mechanics to general relativity, the key principles in all areas of physics are surveyed in this one handy volume. Here Alan Tribble addresses the needs of students and practicing physicists alike. He starts with a review of mathematical methods and then summarizes the most widely used concepts in physics, detailing derivations and applications. With its mix of theory, application, and solved problems, Advanced Physics enables a student to grasp quickly the fundamentals of the field while providing physicists, engineers, and mathematicians with an ideal reference for locating critical formulas or reviewing mathematical details. One of Tribble's goals is to help students, particularly those preparing for comprehensive examinations, to develop and retain a broad base of knowledge and an in-depth understanding of the fundamental physical principles. Until now, reaching this goal has been a time-consuming and difficult task for the student, partly because so many texts have omitted key steps in crucial derivations or have assigned these derivations as exercises. By gathering widespread information into one highly accessible format, Advanced Physics will become an invaluable study aid, will serve readily as a text in a review course or as a supplemental text in higher-level courses, and will make for an indispensable reference for professionals throughout their careers.
The laws of thermodynamics are amongst the most assured and wide-ranging of all scientific laws. They do not pretend to explain any observation in molecular terms but, by showing the necessary relationships between different physical properties, they reduce otherwise disconnected results to compact order, and predict new effects. This classic title, first published in 1957, is a systematic exposition of principles, with examples of applications, especially to changes of places and the conditions for stability. In all this entropy is a key concept.
The step from GCSE to A-level physics can be daunting. This textbook is designed to help students make that transition smoothly. It is built around the core of common topics found in all A-level physics syllabuses, and the problems most frequently encountered by students.
The authors of Advanced Chemistry have referred to original research papers to check facts, and highly original artwork has been devised to ensure accuracy and clarity. This text also includes computer-generated graphics to bring molecular chemistry alive. With full mathematical support within the -maths boxes' and at the end of the book, Advanced Chemistry will inspire and support students.
This book is intended to serve as a textbook for courses in engineering physics, and as a reference for researchers in theoretical physics with engineering applications introduced via study projects, which will be useful to researchers in analog and digital signal processing. The material has been drawn together from the author's extensive teaching experience, interpreting the classical theory of Landau and Lifschitz. The methodology employed is to describe the physical models via ordinary or partial differential equations, and then illustrate how digital signal processing techniques based on discretization of derivatives and partial derivatives can be applied to such models.
This text offers helpful guidance on every aspect of practical investigation alongside clear diagrams and a large range of questions.
This A Level textbook covers the requirements of AS and A2 Physics specifications. This edition features revisions to the content to reflect changing specifications, a new chapter on cosmology and astrophysics, and updated exam questions.
Physics I For Dummies, 2nd Edition (9780470903247) is now being published as Physics I For Dummies, 2nd Edition (9781119293590). While this version features an older Dummies cover and design, the content is the same as the new release and should not be considered a different product. The fun and easy way to get up to speed on the basic concepts of physics For high school and undergraduate students alike, physics classes are recommended or required courses for a wide variety of majors, and continue to be a challenging and often confusing course. Physics I For Dummies tracks specifically to an introductory course and, keeping with the traditionally easy-to-follow Dummies style, teaches you the basic principles and formulas in a clear and concise manner, proving that you don't have to be Einstein to understand physics! Explains the basic principles in a simple, clear, and entertaining fashion New edition includes updated examples and explanations, as well as the newest discoveries in the field Contains the newest teaching techniques If just thinking about the laws of physics makes your head spin, this hands-on, friendly guide gets you out of the black hole and sheds light on this often-intimidating subject.
Edexcel Physics for AS level has been written specifically to cover the concept approach to the new specification and includes a website containing 25 Personal Tutor worked examples. These audio-visual resources contain step by step instructions on how to complete the mathematical aspects of the course, offering support to students when they are working on their own and allowing them to work at their own pace.
