This book will strengthen a student's grasp of the laws of physics
by applying them to practical situations, and problems that yield
more easily to intuitive insight than brute-force methods and
complex mathematics. These intriguing problems, chosen almost
exclusively from classical (non-quantum) physics, are posed in
accessible non-technical language requiring the student to select
the right framework in which to analyse the situation and decide
which branches of physics are involved. The level of sophistication
needed to tackle most of the two hundred problems is that of the
exceptional school student, the good undergraduate, or competent
graduate student. The book will be valuable to undergraduates
preparing for 'general physics' papers. It is hoped that even some
physics professors will find the more difficult questions
challenging. By contrast, mathematical demands are minimal, and do
not go beyond elementary calculus. This intriguing book of physics
problems should prove instructive, challenging and fun.
