Hi all

In this forum, I couldn't see a discussion on I.E. Irodov's " Probem in General Physics".

I used this book as an undergrad and found it immensely useful. The standard of the problems in extremely good and thought provoking. Problems range from single concept problems to complex mixture of concepts. I even discovered many profs used it as problem bank for examination questions!

Unfortunately its not available as widely now in US, although sometimes there are a few copies in Library somewhere or on www.Amazon.com ......... Recommend it highly if you are lucky enough to locate it

Irodov was good. I have it too, though I never ended up doing very many of the problems. The problems were harder than those in Resnick & Halliday.

Frankly,I found out that most questions can be solved easily with DE(repetetive).All others Qs are good.

Mostly real life physics problems are solved by differential equations.

I thought in mordern times,Topology rules(Strings,Dirac formalism of QM,etc)

But yes in my level DEs are the key.Remember the '(repetetive)'
I was bored by Qs like:bullet passing through sand ,resistance inversly proportional to v^2,boat in water -do-,so on .

But overall Irodov has done a great job.
All hail IRODOV.
