Funadamentals Of Physical Science
by Konrad Bates Krauskopf
Publisher: McGraw-Hill 1948
Number of pages: 702
This book is addressed primarily to college students who wish a general knowledge of the physical sciences rather than detailed knowledge in any one science. It should likewise fill the need of the general reader, college trained or not, who seeks information about the methods of science and the place of science in our modern world.

Mechanics and problems of oscillations come first. Then follow vibrations and wave motion, introducing partial differential equations, and Fourier series. Hydrodynamics, electromagnetic theory, and optics bring in more general PDE ...

The aim is to show the student that knowledge of physics enables him to answer many of the questions over which he has puzzled long in vain. The development of each equation is presented with the aid of physical, rather than mathematical concepts.
