Physics for IIT-JEE (Volume-2) 1st Edition is designed for aspirants of IIT-JEE. It covers the physics syllabus, has numerous sample problems and study-tips, and a large collection of IIT-JEE type questions to help student learn to apply the concepts of physics.
Summary of The Book
Physics for IIT-JEE (Volume-2) gives clear and accurate explanations to fundamental concepts and principles of physics. It illustrates how theoretical physics can be used to understand the real world. Some chapters covered in the book are Gauss' Law, Magnetic Force, Special Relativity, and The Nucleus. Fundamental topics have been added to simplify the text for students, and increase coverage of the IIT syllabus.
At the start of every chapter of Physics for IIT-JEE (Volume-2) is an opening teaser that gives puzzling problems, the solutions to which are provided within the text. Checkpoints are placed to help students pause and ponder over their understanding of the subject. Important sentences are marked by a pointed finger symbol to make easy identification. Further, problem-solving tactic sections provide instructions to help students avoid common mistakes. Physics for IIT-JEE (Volume-2) also have sample problems that teach the method of 4Cs (Conceptualize, Classify, Compute, and Categorize). Figures with detailed labels are printed throughout the book.The last part of each chapter has a collection of IIT-JEE type questions like reasoning and assertion, and multiple-choice, like those that appear in the actual test. There are more than 250 solved problems,100 reasoning type questions, 550 multiple-choice questions, and 750 practice problems. The book also has seven appendices to aid students, and they are The International System of Units, Some Fundamental Constants of Physics, Some Astronomical Data, Conversion Factors, Mathematical Formulas, Properties of the Elements, and Periodic Table of the Elements.
Those preparing for their IIT-JEE examination will find Physics for IIT-JEE (Volume-2) to be a useful source of information.
About The Authors
David Halliday, born in 1916, was an American author and physicist.
His book Nuclear Physics is now a classic textbook and has been translated to 4 languages. Fundamentals of Physicshas been recognized as the most outstanding introductory physics text of the 20th century by the American Physical Society.
He graduated with a Ph.D in Physics from University of Pittsburgh in 1941. He started working in the MIT Radiation Lab, and later became the Head of the Physics Department at Pittsburgh. Halliday passed away in in 2010 in Washington.
Jearl Walker is a physicist and author. He graduated from MIT, and then did his Ph.D from the University of Maryland in 1973. He now teaches at the Cleveland State University.
The Flying Circus of Physics, first published in 1975, has been translated to almost a dozen languages. He has done physics stunts like walking on burning coals, pouring freezing-cold liquid nitrogen in his mouth, and lying on a bed of nails that eventually led him to have a TV show named Kinetic Karnival.
Manish K. Singhal is a teacher at The Bansal Classes institute based in Kota. Bansal is renowned for training students to prepare for competitive exams like IIT-JEE.
Robert Resnick is an educator and writer. He did his B.A and Ph.D from Johns Hopkins University. He is a Fulbright Scholar.
Resnick has co-authored books that have been translated to over 47 languages, and have been used by seven million students globally.
He is the recipient of the Oersted Medal, the highest award given by the American Association of Physics Teachers.
