Summary of the Book

This book, Volume 1, contains physical fundamentals of mechanics, thermodynamics and molecular physics, and electrodynamics. Each part is divided into smaller chapters dealing with all the related problems in subtopics.

The first part covers problems in kinematics, the fundamental equation of dynamics, universal gravitation, dynamics of a solid body, elastic deformation of a solid body, hydrodynamics, and relativistic mechanics.

The problems in the second part are in the topics equations of the gas state processes, the first law of thermodynamics, heat capacity, kinetic theory of gases, Boltzmann’s law and Maxwell’s distribution, liquids, capillary effects, phase transformations, and transport phenomena.

The third part problems cover constant electric field in vacuum, conductors and dielectrics in an electric field, electric capacitance, energy of an electric field, electric current, constant magnetic field, magnetics, electromagnetic induction, Maxwell’s equations, and motion of charged particles in electric and magnetic fields.

The book covers the salient features in each topic. It provides comprehensive solutions for all problems with alternative solutions for around 30% of these problems. Explanatory diagrams accompany 80% of the problems, and the solutions are given in SI units for accuracy.
