Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Do you have a handle on basic physics terms and concepts, but your problem-solving skills could use some static friction? "Physics Workbook for Dummies" helps you build upon what you already know to learn how to solve the most common physics problems with confidence and ease.

"Physics Workbook for Dummies" gets the ball rolling with a brief overview of the nuts and bolts (i.e., converting measures, counting significant figures, applying math skills to physics problems, etc.) before getting into the nitty gritty. If you're already a pro on the fundamentals, you can skip this section and jump right into the practice problems. There, you'll get the lowdown on how to take your problem-solving skills to a whole new plane--without ever feeling like you've been left spiraling down a black hole.

With easy-to-follow instructions and practical tips, "Physics Workbook for Dummies" shows you how to you unleash your inner Einstein to solve hundreds of problems in all facets of physics, such as: Acceleration, distance, and timeVectorsForceCircular motionMomentum and kinetic energyRotational kinematics and rotational dynamicsPotential and kinetic energyThermodynamicsElectricity and magnetism

Complete answer explanations are included for all problems so you can see where you went wrong (or right). Plus, you'll get the inside scoop on the ten most common mistakes people make when solving physics problems--and how to avoid them.

When push comes to shove, this friendly guide is just what you need to set your physics problem-solving skills in motion

Book description

Do you have a handle on basic physics terms and concepts, but your problem-solving skills could use some static friction? Physics Workbook for Dummies helps you build upon what you already know to learn how to solve the most common physics problems with confidence and ease.

Physics Workbook for Dummies gets the ball rolling with a brief overview of the nuts and bolts (i.e., converting measures, counting significant figures, applying math skills to physics problems, etc.) before getting into the nitty gritty.

If you’re already a pro on the fundamentals, you can skip this section and jump right into the practice problems. There, you’ll get the lowdown on how to take your problem-solving skills to a whole new plane—without ever feeling like you’ve been left spiraling down a black hole.

With easy-to-follow instructions and practical tips, Physics Workbook for Dummies shows you how to you unleash your inner Einstein to solve hundreds of problems in all facets of physics, such as:

  • Acceleration, distance, and time
  • Vectors
  • Force
  • Circular motion
  • Momentum and kinetic energy
  • Rotational kinematics and rotational dynamics
  • Potential and kinetic energy
  • Thermodynamics
  • Electricity and magnetism

Complete answer explanations are included for all problems so you can see where you went wrong (or right). Plus, you’ll get the inside scoop on the ten most common mistakes people make when solving physics problems—and how to avoid them.

When push comes to shove, this friendly guide is just what you need to set your physics problem-solving skills in motion!
