Contents:
Electrostatics I -- The electric field -- Gauss's law I -- Gauss's law II: applications -- The Coulomb potential -- Conductors and capacitors -- Circuits and currents -- Magnetism I -- Magnetism II: Biot-Savart law -- Ampère II, Faraday, and Lenz -- More Faraday -- AC circuits -- LCR circuits and displacement current -- Electromagnetic waves -- Electromagnetism and relativity -- Optics I: geometric optics revisited -- Optics II: more mirrors and lenses -- Wave theory of light -- Quantum mechanics: the main experiment -- The wave function and its interpretation -- Quantization and measurement -- States of definite energy -- Scattering and dynamics -- Summary and outlook.
Summary: R. Shankar, a well-known physicist and contagiously enthusiastic educator, was among the first to offer a course through the innovative Open Yale Course program. His popular online video lectures on introductory physics have been viewed over a million times. In this second book based on his online Yale course, Shankar explains essential concepts, including electromagnetism, optics, and quantum mechanics. The book begins at the simplest level, develops the basics, and reinforces fundamentals, ensuring a solid foundation in the principles and methods of physics.
