In order to equip hopeful graduate scholars with the data essential to move the qualifying exam, the authors have assembled and solved general and unique difficulties from significant American universities – Boston college, college of Chicago, college of Colorado at Boulder, Columbia, college of Maryland, college of Michigan, Michigan country, Michigan Tech, MIT, Princeton, Rutgers, Stanford, Stony Brook, college of Wisconsin at Madison – and Moscow Institute of Physics and know-how. a variety of fabric is roofed and comparisons are made among comparable difficulties of alternative colleges to supply the scholar with adequate details to suppose cozy and assured on the examination. Guide to Physics Problems is released in volumes: this booklet, Part 1, covers Mechanics, Relativity and Electrodynamics; Part 2 covers Thermodynamics, Statistical Mechanics and Quantum Mechanics.

Praise for A consultant to Physics difficulties: half 1: Mechanics, Relativity, and Electrodynamics:

"Sidney Cahn and Boris Nadgorny have energetically gathered and provided ideas to approximately one hundred forty difficulties from the tests at many universities within the usa and one college in Russia, the Moscow Institute of Physics and know-how. a number of the difficulties are particularly effortless, others are particularly tricky; a few are regimen, others ingenious." (From the Foreword via C. N. Yang, Nobelist in Physics, 1957)

"Generations of graduate scholars might be thankful for its lifestyles as they arrange for this significant hurdle of their careers." (R. Shankar, Yale University)

"The booklet of the quantity could be of significant aid to destiny applicants who needs to move this sort of exam." (J. Robert Schrieffer, Nobelist in Physics, 1972)

"I was once absolutely inspired … The booklet may be valuable to scholars who're learning for his or her examinations and to school who're trying to find acceptable problems." (M. L. Cohen, college of California at Berkeley)

"If a pupil is familiar with the way to remedy those difficulties, they've got long gone a ways towards getting to know the topic matter." (Martin Olsson, collage of Wisconsin at Madison)

"This e-book becomes an important learn consultant for graduate scholars whereas they arrange for his or her Ph.D. exam. it is going to turn into both worthwhile for the college who write the questions." (G. D. Mahan, college of Tennessee at Knoxville)
