physics course

Topics Your Texttome Must Cover The passage bulk betwixt editions of Serway's Physics for Scientists and Engineers after a while Modern Physics, and too other textbooks, earn not tally. Be assured that your tome contains the topics you earn want for this series. The topics your texttome earn want for this series are: Solids and Fluids Pressure Variation of Presassured after a while Depth Presassured Measurements Buoyant Forces and Archimede's Principle Fluids in Motion Fluid Dynamics Bernoulli's Equation Vibrations and Waves Properties of Waves Propagation of a Disturbance Analysis Model: Traveling Waves Waves on a String The Speed of Waves on a String Reflection and Transmission Sound Waves Presassured Variations in Sound Waves Speed of Sound Waves Intensity of Periodic Sound Waves The Doppler Effect Wave Interference Analysis Model: Waves in Interference Standing Waves Analysis Model: Waves inferior Boundary Conditions Resonance Standing Waves in Air Columns Beats: Interference in Time Temperature and Thermal Expansion Temperature and the Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics Thermometers and the Celsius Temperature Scale The Constant-Volume Gas Thermometer and the Absolute Temperature Scale Thermal Expansion of Solids and Liquids Macroscopic Description of an Ideal Gas Energy in Thermal Processes Heat and Internal Energy Specific Heat and Calorimetry Latent Heat Energy Transfer Mechanisms in Thermal Processes The Laws of Thermodynamics Work and Heat in Thermodynamic Processes The First Law of Thermodynamics Some Applications of the First Law of Thermodynamics Molecular Model of an Ideal Gas Molar Specific Heat of an Ideal Gas Adiabatic Processes for an Ideal Gas Heat Engines and the Second Law of Thermodynamics Heat Pumps and Refrigerators Reversible and Irreversible Processes The Carnot Engine Gasoline and Diesel Engines Entropy Changes in Entropy for Thermodynamic Systems Entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics Optics The Nature of Light Reflection and Refraction Measurements of the Speed of Light The Ray Approximation in Ray Optics Analysis Model: Wave inferior Reflection Analysis Model: Wave inferior Refraction Huygen's Principle Dispersion Total Internal Reflection Mirrors and Lenses Images Formed by Flat Mirrors Images Formed by Spherical Mirrors Images Formed by Refraction Images Formed by Thin Lenses Lens Aberrations The Camera The Eye The Simple Magnifier The Compound Microscope The Telescope Wave Optics Young's Double-Slit Experiment Analysis Model: Waves in Interference Change of Phase Due to Reflection Interference in Thin Films Introduction to Diffraction Patterns Diffraction Patterns from Narrow Slits Resolution of Single-Slit and Circular Aperatures The Diffraction Grating Polarization of Light Waves Relativity Special Relativity The Principle of Galilean Relativity The Michelson-Morley Experiment Einstein's Principle of Relativity Consequences of the Special Theory of Relativity The Lorentz Transformation Equations The Lorentz Velocity Transformation Equations Relativistic Linear Momentum Relativistic Energy The General Theory of Relativity Quantum Physics The Photelectric Effect The Compton Effect The Nature of Electromagnetic Waves The Wave Properties of Particles The Double-Slit Experiment Revisited The Uncertainty Principle Atomic Physics Atomic Spectra of Gases Early Models of the Atom Bohr's Model of the Hydrogen Atom The Quantum Model of the Hydrogen Atom The Wave Function for Hydrogen Nuclear Physics Some Properties of Nuclei Nuclear Binding Energy Nuclear Models Radioactivity The Decay Processes Natural Radioactivity Nuclear Reactions Interactions Involving Neutrons Nuclear Fission Nuclear Reactors Nuclear Fusion Radiation Damage Course Organization The series is separated into ten precepts: Fluids Waves Wave Interference Heat and Work Heat engines Optics Light Interference Relativity Quantum Physics Nuclear Physics Each precept contains a examine train, activities and assignments, and a quiz.
