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.

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.

The goal was to make students familiar with the basic notions of physics, and the main effort was to organize the material in a logical sequence. Topics: Classical Mechanics, Classical Electrodynamics, Quantum Mechanics, Statistical Mechanics.

A numerical example in Physics serves a manifold purpose. It takes the mathematical expression of a physical law out of the realm of mere abstraction, by emphasizing the connection between such a law and the phenomena of daily observation.
