1000 Solved Problems in Modern Physics

Authors: Kamal, Ahmad A.

  • Exercise book for physics students
  • Covers a large part of physics lectures except optics
  • Offers well chosen and didactically solved problems to physics courses in the US, GB and other countries
  • Useful to students to deepen their knowledge
  • About 10% of the book is devoted to summary and formulas with explanatory notes
  • Based mainly on the actual question papers for undergraduate and graduate students
  • The problems have a large variety and are not necessarily of plug-in-type, but explain the underlying physics

About this book

This book basically caters to the needs of undergraduates and graduates physics students in the area of modern physics, specially particle and nuclear physics. Lecturers/tutors may use it as a resource book. The contents of the book are based on the syllabi currently used in the undergraduate courses in USA, U.K., and other countries. The book is divided into 10 chapters, each chapter beginning with a brief but adequate summary and necessary formulas, tables and line diagrams followed by a variety of typical problems useful for assignments and exams. Detailed solutions are provided at the end of each chapter.

About the authors

The author obtained his Doctoral degree from University of Bristol, U.K. under the supervision of Emeritus Professor Dr.D.H. Perkins, FRS. The author has worked in high-energy physics for a number of years using photographic emulsions exposed at CERN. He has also used low-energy facilities at Nuclear Science Center at New Delhi. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Ottawa, visitor to CERN, visiting professor at the University of Tebrez. He has published 40 research papers in International Journals and gave lectures on Nuclear physics, particle physics, quantum mechanics, classical mechanics, mathematical physics, atomic and molecular physics and relativity at undergraduate and graduate levels at various universities for several years. He was a Professor and Head of the Department of Physics and Chairman, Board of studies at the Osmania University.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book provides a collection of problems and solutions in physics targeting mainly undergraduate students. … The book focuses mainly on basic problems in quantum mechanics, nuclear physics and particle physics. … the book could be a useful addition to problem and solution books in physics for undergraduate students.” (Willi-Hans Steeb, zbMATH, Vol. 1271, 2013)

“Kamal … has prepared an excellent resource for physics professors and students. … The solutions give enough detail to understand how to solve the problems without being pedantic. … The level of the material makes this a great book for upper-level undergraduates studying the topics for the first time, a very good resource for graduate students looking to review the material … and a good resource for professors seeking example problems or quiz/exam problems. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Academic libraries serving upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty.” (D. B. Mason, Choice, Vol. 48 (5), January, 2011)
