Classical Elaborate reference on Wave motion

  1. Feb 7, 2015 #1
    Dear experts,
    I need to study wave motion in detail. Mainly mechanical waves on a string, reflection of mechanical waves, standing waves, resonance etc. I am looking for a book which covers these basic concepts in minute detail.
    For example , I believe that the phase shifts during wave reflection can be explained with a very fundamental law of momentum conservation.

    Kindly help me to find some material or textbook or any other similar resource which would give me the right information.

    Thank You

    French, Vibrations and Waves (this is a must have)
    Georgi, The Physics of Waves (free online, look it up)
    King, Vibrations and Waves (easy, nice and clear)
    Pain, The Physics of Vibrations and Waves (a bit convoluted, but lots of applications)
