Excerpt provided by Syndetics

HOW TO USE THIS BOOK This book can be an invaluable aid to physics students as a supplement to their textbooks. The book is subdivided into 37 chapters, each dealingwith a separate topic. The subject matter is developed beginning with fundamental concepts of vector quantities and extending through all major fields currently studied in physics. For students in science and engineering, advanced problems and solution techniques have been included. Each chapter in the book starts with a section titled "Basic Attacks and Strategies for Solving Problems in this Chapter." This section explains the principles which are applicable to the topics in the chapter. By reviewing these principles, students can acquire a good grasp of the underlyingtechniques and strategies through which problems related to the chapter may be solved. HOW TO LEARN AND UNDERSTAND A TOPIC THOROUGHLY 1. Refer to your class text and read the section pertaining to the topic. You should become acquainted with the principles discussed there. These principles, however, may not be clear to you at the time. 2. Then locate the topic you are looking for by referring to the"Table of Contents" in the front of this book. 3. Turn to the page where the topic begins and review the problems under each topic, in the order given. For each topic, the problems are arranged in order of complexity, from the simplest to the more difficult. Some problems may appear similar to others, but each problem has been selected to illustrate a different point or solution method. To learn and understand a topic thoroughly and retain its contents, it will be generally necessary for students to review the problems several times. Repeated review is essential in order to gain experience in recognizing the principles that should be applied, and to select the best solution technique. HOW TO FIND A PARTICULAR PROBLEM To locate one or more problems related to particular subject matter, refer to the index. In using the index, be certain to note that the numbers given there refer to problem numbers, not to page numbers. This arrangement of the index is intended to facilitate finding a problem more rapidly, since two or more problems may appear on a page. If a particular type of problem cannot be found readily, it is recommended that the student refer to the "Table of Contents," and then turn to the chapter which is applicable to the problem being sought. By scanning or glancing at the material that is boxed, it will generally be possible to find problems related to the one being sought, without consuming considerable time. After the problems have been located, the solutions can be reviewed and studied in detail. For the purpose of locating problems rapidly, students shouldacquaint themselves with the organization of the book as found in the "Table of Contents." In preparing for an exam, it is useful to find the topics to be covered in the exam from the "Table of Contents," and then review the problems under those topics several times. This should equip the student with what might be needed for the exam. Excerpted from Physics Problem Solver by Research and Education Association Staff, Joseph J.
