This course introduces basic physics concepts, including the fundamental laws of matter and energy, velocity and acceleration, thermodynamics and heat, acoustics and sound waves, reflection and refraction of light, electricity, magnetism, and quantum theory. Material is presented through detailed explanations with a touch of humor, which helps students grasp the more perplexing questions. Wherever possible, the principles of physics are illustrated by everyday experience and practical devices. Students are shown how many kinds of technology—from the camera to the car—actually function. Numerous illustrative problems are solved in detail.
