Essential Physics 1
by Frank W. K. Firk
Publisher: Archive.org 2000
Number of pages: 210
This is an intensive introduction to classical and special relativity, Newtonian dynamics and gravitation, Einsteinian dynamics and gravitation, and wave motion. Mathematical methods include: elements of differential geometry, linear operators and matrices, ordinary differential equations, calculus of variations, orthogonal functions and Fourier series, and non-linear equations for chaotic systems. This is a book for first-year college students who have an interest in pursuing a career in Physics or a closely related field.

We begin by discussing waves in matter - sound being a special case. To understand the nature of light we begin by introducing Electric and Magnetic fields and build the relationships which develop into the Maxwell's Electromagnetic Field Equations.
by Henry S. Carhart - Allyn and Bacon
Contents: MECHANICS (Kinematics, Dynamics, Mechanics of Fluids); SOUND (Waves, Transmission, Music); LIGHT (Nature of Light, Sensations of Color, Optical Instruments); HEAT (Transmission and Radiation, Thermodynamics); MAGNETISM AND ELECTRICITY.
by Clarence E. Bennett - Barnes & Noble
The purpose of this book is to summarize the essential features of first year college physics. The subject matter is divided into the classical branches of mechanics, properties of matter, wave motion, sound, heat, electricity, magnetism, and light.
