About the Book
Mathematical Methods for Introctory Physics with Calculus (3/e) is a short summary of the various mathematical methods students will encounter in introductory calculus-based physics courses, and can be used in conjunction with any textbook. Topics are presented from the physicist's viewpoint: the book provides operational mathematical techniques for physics with abundant worked examples. Additionally, questions at the end of each section are answered in the back of the book so students aren't left guessing as to whether or not they've grasped specific topics. Features: * Thoroughly explained worked examples demonstrate the mathematics behind a variety of physics concepts including uniform circular motion, the calculation of torque, simple harmonic motion, phase shift, and many more. * "Figures" in the text range from illustrations to graphs and lists, graphically portraying information to support text discussion. * Numerous exercises in each chapter enable students to assess their comprehension of topics. Answers are in the back of the book. * All examples in the book have been drawn from classical mechanics in keeping with the first semester of most physics course curriculums. * Emphasizing the book's dedication to provide a brief mathematical overview, worked examples focus on those topics central to improving necessary skills. New to this edition: * Section 3.5 is a major new improvement on simple harmonic motion and includes twenty new exercises. * Section 5.9 has been expanded, including six new exercises, to include detaiuled discussion of the calculation of angular momentum for uniform circular motion. * Where appropriate, examples and exercises have been converted to SI units. * Topic presentation has been streamlined including the removal of the chapter on calculators.
