This 570-page book was written for a physics course that does not require calculus, but does require basic algebra, principles of trigonometry and a very small amount of vector analysis. There is a review of mathematics in the appendices, nevertheless “the concepts are developed in the corresponding theme”.

This 570-page book was written for a physics course that does not require calculus, but does require basic algebra, principles of trigonometry and a very small amount of vector analysis. There is a review of mathematics in the appendices, nevertheless “the concepts are developed in the corresponding theme”. The book contains the following themes: introduction to vectors, uniformly accelerated movement, Newton laws, equilibrium under the action of concurrent forces, equilibrium of a rigid body under the action of coplanar forces, work, energy and power, simple machines, impulse and momentum, angular movement in one plane, rotation of a rigidbody, simple harmonic movement and springs, density, elasticity, fluids at rest, fluids in movement, thermal expansion, ideal gases, kinetic theory, calorimetry, transfer of heat, first law of thermodynamics, entropy and the second law, wave movement, sound, Coulomb’s law and electric fields, potential and capacitance, current, resistance, and Ohm’s law, electric power, equivalent resistance, simple circuits, Kirchoff’s laws, forces in magnetic fields, sources of magnetic fields, induced EMF, magnetic flux, electric motors and generators, , inductance, constants of R-C and R-L time, alternating current, reflection of light, thin lenses, optical instruments, interference and difraction of light, relativity, quantum physics and wave mechanics, the hydrogen atom, multi-electron atoms, nuclei and radioactivity, applied nuclear physics, appendices (significant figures, trigonometry, exponents, logarithms, prefixes of SI units, the Greek alphabet, conversion factors, physical constants, and the periodic table of elements).
