3000 Solved problems in Physics

  1. Oct 20, 2009 #1
    hey there, just wondering if anyone else out there is currently using this book

    for my part, I absolutely love it, the problems range from introductory to downright difficult questions, and all contain sufficient solutions, having used it for the past few weeks doing many questions I can really say that it has helped me to understand the topics. it has the right mix of mickey-mouse questions getting you familiar with equations, and real thinkers which challenge your understanding.

    not only that, but to my knowledge it must cover questions from at least the first two years of undergraduate study, surely one wouldn't meet Maxwell's equations in depth until the second year.

    would love to hear some opinions on this book and how useful you've found it!

    Yes, I bought that book. I needed more confidance in my physics problem solving and this book certainly gave me that.
    For example; I wanted to know what the final speed would be of 1m diameter by 1m deep spinning drum full of 100L of water spinning at 1000rpm and then have a hole on the perimeter drain all the water. When empty what is the final rpm of the drum? Ignore the weight of the drum. How fast will the water drain through a 5cm cubed hole?
    I love the book!
