Essentials Of Physics Volume - I by Sanjay Moreshwar Wagh, Dilip Abasaheb Deshpande
Physics is our attempt to conceptually grasp all the happenings around us. Then, realizing that concepts are the free creations of the human mind helps us develop proper understanding of a subject, especially during formative stages.
This introductory book on Physics presents careful analysis of the develop-ments of basic concepts for the beginners. It is written in a way that stimulates students and creates a sustained interest in Physics so that studying the subject is enjoyable and satisfying. The physical concepts are explained clearly enough for anyone to understand. In this text, the exercises are provided in three different categories, namely, as questions, as problems, and as multiple choice questions. The first category of exercises contains thought provoking and descriptive questions. The second category of exercises involves numerical computations. The third category of exercises, of multiple choice questions, provides a reader with a flavour of the currently popular mode of examination.
Intended for the introductory-level college physics courses, the book will also be an invaluable resource for the students preparing for various competitive examinations.
