University Physics – George B. Arfken, David F. Griffing, Donald C. Kelly & Joseph Priest – 1st Edition

Description

Physics: Arfken Griffing Kelly Priest covers the concepts upon which the quantitative nature of physics as a science depends; the types of quantities with which physics deals are defined as well as their nature; and the concepts of units and dimensions.

The book describes the concepts of scalars and vectors; the rules for performing mathematical operations on vector quantities; the concepts of force, torque, center of gravity, and types of equilibrium. The text also describes the concepts and quantities required to describe motion; the linear kinematical relationships to describe motion; as well as the interrelationship between forces, which effect motion, and the motion itself. The concepts of work, kinetic energy and power; conservative and nonconservative forces; and the conservation of linear momentum are also considered.

The book further tackles the concept of the center of mass; the rotational analogs of translational dynamics; and the of rotating systems. The text then demonstrates the motion of a rigid body; oscillatory motion, the mechanical of matter; and hydrodynamics. Thermodynamics, electricity, electromagnetism, and geometric and optics are also encompassed.

Quantum and nuclear physics are also looked into. taking physics courses will find the book useful.
