Modern Physics for Scientists and Engineers – John Taylor – 2nd Edition

Description

Refreshingly contemporary, this beginning-level introduction to modern covers all the important topics of relativity, quantum , systems with two or more atoms, and subatomic physics—but does so in a manner that won’t overwhelm readers who are new to the subject.

Explanations of concepts are exceptionally readable (often enlivened with humor), and an abundance of high- worked examples and practice give readers the hands-on practice necessary to master applications.

The Space and Time of Relativity. Relativistic Mechanics. Atoms. Quantization of Light. Quantization of Atomic Levels. Matter Waves. The Schrödinger Equation in One . The Three-Dimensional Schrödinger Equation. Electron Spin. Multielectron Atoms; the Pauli Principle and the Periodic Table.

Atomic Transitions and Radiation. Molecules. Solids—Theory. Solids—Applications. Statistical Mechanics. The Structure of Atomic Nuclei. Radioactivity and Nuclear . Elementary Particles. For anyone needing an introduction to, or refresher of, .
