This collection of exercises compiled for talented high-school and undergraduate-level students encourages creativity and a deeper understanding of ideas when solving physics problems. This book features almost three hundred problems and solutions worked out in detail, dealing with classical physics topics such as mechanics, thermodynamics, electrodynamics, magnetism and optics. Posed in accessible language and requiring only elementary calculus, these problems are intended to strengthen students’ knowledge of the laws of physics by applying them to practical situations in a fun and instructive way. These problems and solutions challenge students of physics, stretching their abilities through practice and a thorough comprehension of ideas.
