Guide to Physics Problems is released in volumes: this ebook, Part 1, covers Mechanics, Relativity and Electrodynamics; Part 2 covers Thermodynamics, Statistical Mechanics and Quantum Mechanics.

Praise for A advisor to Physics difficulties: half 1: Mechanics, Relativity, and Electrodynamics:

"Sidney Cahn and Boris Nadgorny have energetically amassed and provided options to approximately one hundred forty difficulties from the checks at many universities within the usa and one college in Russia, the Moscow Institute of Physics and know-how. a few of the difficulties are rather effortless, others are fairly difficult; a few are regimen, others ingenious." (From the Foreword through C. N. Yang, Nobelist in Physics, 1957)

"Generations of graduate scholars can be thankful for its lifestyles as they organize for this significant hurdle of their careers." (R. Shankar, Yale University)

"The e-book of the amount could be of serious aid to destiny applicants who needs to cross this kind of exam." (J. Robert Schrieffer, Nobelist in Physics, 1972)

"I was once certainly inspired … The publication might be worthy to scholars who're learning for his or her examinations and to college who're looking for applicable problems." (M. L. Cohen, college of California at Berkeley)

"If a scholar is aware easy methods to clear up those difficulties, they've got long past far towards getting to know the topic matter." (Martin Olsson, college of Wisconsin at Madison)
