Pain's truly awful "Physics of Vibrations and Waves") in a class I took recently. It was a pleasure to read. In spite of the fact that the book is quite short (and quite compact in your bag), it covers the material very thoroughly/5(34).

The main theme of this highly successful book is that the transmission of energy by wave propogation is fundamental to almost every branch of physics.

Therefore, besides giving students a thorough grounding in the theory of waves and vibrations, the book also demonstrates the pattern and unity of a large part of physics. Vibrations and Waves by Benjamin Crowell. This bookeExamines and explains vibrations, resonance, free waves, and bounded waves.

Includes a glossary, index, photo credits, and useful data page. This book is part of the Light and Matter series of introductory physics textbooks. Author(s): Benjamin Crowell. The opening session of the physics degree course at Imperial College includes an introduction to vibrations and waves where the stress is laid on the underlying unity of concepts which are studied separately and in more detail at later stages.

The main theme of this highly successful book is that the transmission of energy by wave propogation is fundamental to almost every branch of physics.

Therefore, besides giving students a thorough grounding in the theory of waves and vibrations, the book also demonstrates the pattern and unity of a large part of physics.

Apart from the fact that this book has no examples, it is everything the 5 star reviewers have said. P.S get yourself Vibrations and Waves (M.I.T. Introductory Physics Series)it is 1/2 the price of Vibrations and Waves (Mit Introductory Physics Series) P.P.S. Vibrations and Waves (Manchester Physics Series)is a book published by Wiley.

The main theme of this highly successful book is that the transmission of energy by wave propogation is fundamental to almost every branch of physics. Therefore, besides giving students a thorough grounding in the theory of waves and vibrations, the book also demonstrates the pattern and unity of a large part of physics/5.

Waves courses seem to be a little funny - they are often in the space ibetween intro-physics and upper division physics, so the books tend to hold your hand less than the intro books.

That may be part of why I am mostly drawing a blank on waves books with lots of worked example problems (I know lots of good books on waves, though!). This book is designed as a text for an undergraduate course on vibrations and waves.

The overall objectives of the book are to lead the student through the basic physical concepts of vibrations and waves and to demonstrate how these concepts unify a wide variety of familiar Vibrations and waves in physics book. As with earlier editions, the book has a large number of problems together with hints on how to solve them.

The Physics of Vibrations and Waves, 6th Edition will prove invaluable for students taking a first full course in the subject across a variety of disciplines particularly physics, engineering and mathematics. Most good general physics texts at the undergraduate level will include a section on vibrations, waves and the underlying mathematics (which is basically the wave equation - a second order partial differential equation).

Books on partial different. The main theme of this highly successful book is that the transmission of energy by wave propogation is fundamental to almost every branch of physics. Therefore, besides giving students a thorough grounding in the theory of waves and vibrations, the book also demonstrates the pattern Vibrations and waves in physics book unity of a large part of physics.3/5(6).

The overall objectives of the book are unchanged: to lead the student to a thorough understanding of the basic concepts of vibrations and waves, to show how these concepts unify a wide variety of familiar physics, and to open doors to advanced topics which they illuminate.

For a second book, The Physics of Vibrations and Waves by Pain does a nice job of covering everything in an introductory matter with a strong rigor.

After covering Hirose, this book took a few weeks to cover on my own. The main theme of this highly successful book is that the transmission of energy by wave propogation is fundamental to almost every branch of physics.

Therefore, besides giving students a thorough grounding in the theory of waves and vibrations, the book also demonstrates the pattern and unity of a large part of physics. This new edition has been thoroughly revised and. The main theme of this highly successful book is that the transmission of energy by wave propogation is fundamental to almost every branch of physics.

Vibrations and waves are everywhere. If you take any system and disturb it from a stable equilibrium, the resultant motion will be waves and vibrations. Think of a guitar string—pluck the string, and it vibrates. The sound waves generated make their way to our ears, and we hear the string’s sound.

Our eyes see what’s happening because. Vibrations and waves are extremely important phenomena in physics. In nature, oscillations are found everywhere. From the jiggling of atoms to the large oscillations of sea waves, we find examples of vibrations in almost every physical system.

This video introduces basic ideas about the concept of waves and vibrations to grade 11 students. Topics include: amplitude, frequency, period, phase, medium, transverse vs. longitudinal waves. Waves are everywhere. Everything waves. There are familiar, everyday sorts of waves in water, ropes and springs.

There are less visible but equally pervasive sound waves and elec-tromagnetic waves. Even more important, though only touched on in this book, is the wave phenomenon of quantum mechanics, built into the fabric of our space and time. Description: This book is designed as a text for an undergraduate course on vibrations and waves.

The overall objectives of the book are to lead the student through the basic physical concepts of vibrations and waves and to demonstrate how these concepts unify a wide variety of familiar physics. This OCW Scholar course is based upon Professor Yen-Jie Lee’s Physics III: Vibrations and Waves course as taught on the MIT campus.

It includes a complete set of 24 video lectures recorded at MIT in the Fall of Additional materials have been developed specifically for this OCW Scholar course, including. The study of vibrations and waves is central to physics and engineering text contains a detailed treatment of vibrations and waves at an introductory level suitable for second and third year students.

It builds on first year physics and emphasizes understanding of vibratory motion and waves based on first principles.4/5(1). Buy a cheap copy of Vibrations and Waves in Physics book by Iain G. Main.

Physics of Vibrations This section starts by defining a few basic physical principles such as energy and pressure (readers already familiar with these principles can skip sections 2A and 2B). The rest of the section examines the physical description of vibrations, the origin of all sound.

This book is a fairly low-level introduction to the theory of mechanical waves and vibrations. Granted, it is relatively old (published in the 60s), but the physics is still true/5(77). However, there is a freely available book which we will use frequently, and two good books which I recommend for slightly different approaches to some of the material.
