About the Book
Irodov’s problems are considered the most complex and comprehensive set of problems in terms of concept testing the world over. In fact, some problems combine multiple concepts of physics, which make these problems unique.
Solutions to IRODOV’S Problems in General Physics, available in two volumes, are meant for those dedicated physics students who face the challenge of solving numerical problems, particularly IIT-JEE aspirants. The two volumes provide complete solutions for each of the 1878 problems in IRODOV’s Problems in General Physics.
The solutions presented in these two volumes are crisp, and guaranteed to make you think beyond the box. These books are exactly what you need to establish a strong foundation for discovering the beauty of physics and cracking any entrance exam in India.
The first volume contains solutions related to the following topics:
- Physical Fundamental of Mechanics
- Thermodynamics and Molecular Physics
Salient Features of this Edition
- Comprehensive solutions for each and every Irodov problem
- Additional alternate solutions for at least 30% of the problems
- Explanatory diagrams for 80% problems
- Answers in SI units in accordance with the rules of approximation and accuracy.
See Vol II for:
- Oscillations and Waves
- Atomic and Nuclear Physics
