The content in this book is based on my handouts (Physics) which I prepared to facilitate the students of BS program. This collection of handouts will provide students with easy concepts, simple description and mathematical models of the topic under discussion. Your feedback would be very important for me to improve this work. More
Physics is the study of matter, energy and their interactions. Physics is an international enterprise, which plays a key role in the future progress of humankind. The support of physics education and research in all countries is important because Physics is an exciting intellectual adventure that inspires young people and expands the frontiers of our knowledge about Nature. Physics generates fundamental knowledge needed for the future technological advances that will continue to drive the economic engines of the world. Physics contributes to the technological infrastructure and provides trained personnel needed to take advantage of scientific advances and discoveries. Physics is an important element in the education of chemists, engineers and computer scientists, as well as practitioners of the other physical and biomedical sciences. Physics extends and enhances our understanding of other disciplines, such as the earth, agricultural, chemical, biological, and environmental sciences, plus astrophysics and cosmology - subjects of substantial importance to all peoples of the world. Physics improves our quality of life by providing the basic understanding necessary for developing new instrumentation and techniques for medical applications, such as computer tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography, ultrasonic imaging, and laser surgery. In summary, for all these reasons, physics is an essential part of the educational system and of an advanced society. This book is based on my handouts which I prepared to facilitate the students of BS program. This collection of handouts will provide students with easy concepts, simple description and mathematical models of the topic under discussion.
