Is the teaching that if two calculations which should agree, do not, one is entitled to clutch at straws and make it up as one goes along? I bought this book recently for my own amusement expecting to find the problems challenging and thought-provoking, which they are. To get the free app, enter your mobile phone number. This text will strengthen a student's ability to apply the laws of physics to practical situations and problems that yield more easily to intuitive insight than to complex mathematics. I would recommend this book for very good secondary school students preparing for physics competitions or interested in physics, and undergraduates who are starting to forget why physics is fun after the barrage of (more) boring problems they are faced with. 200 Puzzling Physics Problems: With Hints and Solutions, © 1996-2020, Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates.

It is aimed at students, it should not mislead in this way so early on. Esperava mais de um livro vendido e entregue pela Amazon. It could be anything it liked presumably, depending upon the constitutive behaviour of the carpet? One cannot help but wonder where the notes to S4 came from?

Peter Gnädig graduated as a physicist from Roland Eötvös University (ELTE) in Budapest in 1971 and received his PhD degree in theoretical particle physics there in 1980. It is easy to show that the factor of 1/2 results from a trivial error made by the authors. Try again.

One might reasonably expect the solutions to be accurate and the notes and comments accompanying them to be helpful, for them not to be misleading at least, surely? Please try again. This book will strengthen a student's grasp of the laws of physics by applying them to practical problems that yield more easily to intuitive insight than brute-force methods or complex mathematics. (even more worrying). The minimum force, which one is asked to calculate, can be gauged also from an energy balance, as the authors point out in the notes to S4, and the two answers must or should agree, on the basis of the information given. The book will be invaluable to undergraduates preparing for "general physics" papers. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness. There was a problem loading your book clubs.

Something went wrong. P4, concerning the folding and rolling back of an "ideal" carpet, is solved straightforwardly by the application of Newton's 2nd law. (worrying), or, do the authors really believe that all "conservative" systems dissipate exactly 1/2 their energy? Login. David L. Andrews, European Journal of Physics. "S4", the solution to "P4" was a cause for real concern.

But, to introduce new or additional physics not required or anticipated by P4 nor H4 is quite another. Some physics professors will even find the more difficult questions challenging. It is hoped that even some physics professors will find the more difficult questions challenging. You need a deep understanding of the concepts to be able to solve these problems. The authors assert that energy balance gives an answer smaller by a factor of two than does the momentum balance and claim that the difference is due to energy dissipation.
