Intended as supplementary material for undergraduate physics students, this wide-ranging collection of problems in applied mathematics and physics features complete solutions. The problems were specially chosen for the inventiveness and resourcefulness their solutions demand, and they offer students the opportunity to apply their general knowledge to specific areas. Numerous problems, many of them illustrated with figures, cover a diverse array of fields: kinematics; the dynamics of motion in a straight line; statics; work, power, and energy; the dynamics of motion in a circle; and the universal theory of gravitation. Additional topics include oscillation, waves, and sound; the mechanics of liquids and gases; heat and capillary phenomena; electricity; and optics.
