Preface Physics is the liberal arts of high technology
This books is based on the common core syllabus of State Board of Technical Education, Haryana. It explains, in simple and systematic manner, the basic principles and applications of Applied PhysicsII for diploma students. The book would serve as an excellent text for first year diploma students. Physics is a fundamental science, and those who study it will gain an understanding of the basic laws that govern everything from the very small subatomic to the very large cosmic scale. The study of physics provides us with an unparalleled power of analysis that is useful in the daily life. This first edition of Applied Physics-II, contains material for the new syllabus. It includes a chapter I about Applications of Sound waves, along with many discussion question Sound waves and their propagation and applications etc., Chapter II covers Principles of optics in an easy and interesting way, Chapter III covers Electrostatics effectively with examples, similarly whole syllabus is covered very clearly and in an easy way. The questions at the end of each chapter will increase the knowledge of students. The book contains many example questions and answers that are meant to make the student more confortable with solving problems. Some are more involved than others. There are also questions at the end of each chapter, which the student should attempt to answer to test his or her understanding. Starting a physics course at this level knows the basics of trigonometry and is confortable with simple algebraic manipulations . In the end of each chapter Hindi Version of most of the topics of the chapter is given for the better knowledge of our students. Applied Physics is not watered-down physics. It is advanced physics. It covers the most interesting and most important topics. Students recognize the value of what they are learning, and are naturally motivated to do well. In every chapter they find material they want to share with their friends, roommates, and parents. The response to this new approach is going to be fantastics. Many of the students previously hated physics, and swore after their high school class never to take it again. But they will drawn, like moths to a flame, to a subject they find fascinating and important. My job is to make sure their craving is fulfilled, and that they won t be burnde again. These students come to college to learn, and they will feel happiest when they sense their knowledge and abilities growing. Students don t take the course because it is easy it isn t. It covers an enormous amount of material. But every chapter is full of information that is evidently important. That s why students will signup. They don t want to be entertained. They want a good course, well taught, that fills them with
important information and the ability to use it well. They are proud to take this course, but more imporantly, they will feel very proud that they are going to enjoy it. Physics is the liberal arts of high technology. Understand physics, and never again be intimidated by technological advances. This book is designed to attract student, and each teach them the physics they need to know to be an effective engineer. All valuable suggestions for its improvement will be highly appreciated and gratefully received by the authors. Author
Syllabus APPLIED PHYSICS - II LTP 3-2 RATIONALE Applied Physics includes the study of a large number of diverse topics related to things that go in the world around us. It aims to give an understanding of this world both by observation and prediction of the way in which objects behave. Concrete use of physical principles and analysis in various fields of engineering and technology are given prominence in the course content.
