"There is very little else to say - this book does exactly what it says on the cover. The text is well presented with informative illustrations, examples and guiding points for the reader. The information was informative and understandable for the reviewer who has not encountered these topics in this depth for several years." ( Reviews , December 2010)
Your plain-English guide to advanced physics
Does just thinking about magnetism make your head spin? Thanks to this book, you don't have to be Einstein to understand physics. It walks you through the essentials and gives you easy-to-understand and digestible information on this often-intimidating course. From sound and light waves to electric potential and electric energy, this no-nonsense guide makes this fascinating topic accessible to everyone.
* Physics II 101 -- get a crash course on the main topics covered in a typical Physics II course and brush up on basic skills, like making conversions and working with scientific notation
* Get charged up -- understand the role of electricity and magnetism in Physics II, from AC circuits to permanent magnets to magnetic fields
* Ride the wave -- learn how light waves interact and interfere with each other and how they bounce off things, pass through glass, and do all sorts of cool stuff
* Go exploring -- take a look at the theory of special relativity and learn what Einstein (among other physicists) had to say about it
Open the book and find:
* A look at electric fields, voltage, and charge
* The effects of resistors, inductors, and capacitors
* Everything you need to know about magnetism
* How light interacts with lenses and mirrors
* The scoop on sound, light, and other waves
* A look at special relativity
* The relationship between energy and matter
* The structure of atoms
* The nuts and bolts of radioactivity
Learn to:
* Grasp physics terminology
* Get a handle on quantum and nuclear physics
* Understand waves, forces, and fields
* Make sense of electric potential and energy
