Oscillations, Waves and Acoustics by P K Mittal
The chapters cover a vast number of topics like free, forced, damped oscillations, normal modes of vibrations, sound waves, overdamped and ballistic oscillations, LCR circuits etc. In every chapter the topics are dealt with in detail followed by illustrated solved examples and unsolved exercises.
Audience of the Book :
|The present book is meant for the students of undergraduate Science and Engineering courses. This course finds lots of applications, right from Mechanics, Sound, Optics, Solid State Physics, Electrodynamics to Electronics.|
The main features of the book are as follows:
