Competitive Physics : Mechanics and Waves - by Jinhui Wang & Bernard Ricardo (Paperback)
About this item
Written by a former Olympiad student, Wang Jinhui, and a Physics Olympiad national trainer, Bernard Ricardo, Competitive Physics delves into the art of solving challenging physics puzzles. This book not only expounds a multitude of physics topics from the basics but also illustrates how these theories can be applied to problems, often in an elegant fashion. With worked examples that depict various problem-solving sleights of hand and interesting exercises to enhance the mastery of such techniques, readers will hopefully be able to develop their own insights and be better prepared for physics competitions. Ultimately, problem-solving is a craft that requires much intuition. Yet, perhaps this intuition can only be honed by mentally trudging through an arduous but fulfilling journey of enigmas.Mechanics and Waves is the first of a two-part series which will discuss general problem-solving methods, such as the exploiting of symmetries in a system, setting a firm foundation for other topics.
