Physics For Engineers And Scientists International Student Edition (Extended Third Edition).


Chapters 1-41 Paperback – 19 Jun 2007 by Hans C. Ohanian (Author), John T. Markert (Author)

The text presents a modern view of classical mechanics and electromagnetism for today's science and engineering students, including coverage of optics and quantum physics and emphasizing the relationship between macroscopic and microscopic phenomena.

Organized to address specific concepts and then build on them, this highly readable text divides each chapter into short, focused sections followed by review questions. Using real-world examples, the authors offer a glimpse of the practical applications of physics in science and engineering, developing a solid conceptual foundation before introducing mathematical results and derivations (a basic knowledge of derivatives and integrals is assumed).

Designed for the introductory calculus-based physics course, Physics for Engineers and Scientists is distinguished by its lucid exposition and accessible coverage of fundamental physical concepts.

My own experience:

A very useful book, as an acompagnion to MIT 8.01 course Physics. All of the lectures can be found on YouTube Lectures by Walter Lewin. They will make you ♥ Physics.

The book contains a lot of problems, the result of the odd numbered problems are in the back of the book.

I'll try to deliver here all sollutions explained in an Jupyter Notebook format using Python to calculate the results.

A book not to be missed on the shelf if you want to delve in to Physics ...

Solutions (PFE) to the problems

If you discover errors in the solutions let me know so that I can correct them.

The solutions are as the are, I do NOT take any responsabilities toward the correctness of them. Before you peek at them, try to solve by yourself. This is the only way to learn Physics and to gain habbit on solving problems. Only if you have your results, compare them to those.

Chapter 1:


Previous sollutions where made in Matlab and in Duch so I have to translate them and to transcribe them to Jupyter Notebook. I will first finnish the other chapters an in between add the fist sollutions in reverse order

سُوۡرَةُ حٰمٓ السجدة / فُصّلَت
ثُمَّ اسْتَوَىٰ إِلَى السَّمَاءِ وَهِيَ دُخَانٌ فَقَالَ لَهَا وَلِلْأَرْضِ ائْتِيَا طَوْعًا أَوْ كَرْهًا قَالَتَا أَتَيْنَا طَائِعِينَ ﴿١١
فَقَضَاهُنَّ سَبْعَ سَمَاوَاتٍ فِي يَوْمَيْنِ وَأَوْحَىٰ فِي كُلِّ سَمَاءٍ أَمْرَهَا ۚ وَزَيَّنَّا السَّمَاءَ الدُّنْيَا بِمَصَابِيحَ وَحِفْظًا ۚ ذَٰلِكَ تَقْدِيرُ الْعَزِيزِ الْعَلِيمِ ﴿١٢

Surah Fussilat: Thereafter turned He to the heaven and it was as smoke, and said Unto it and Unto the earth: come ye twain, willingly or loth. They said: we come willingly. (11) Then He decreed them as seven heavens in two days, and revealed Unto each heaven the command thereof; and We bedecked the nether heaven with lamps and placed therein a guard. That is the ordinance of the Mighty, the Knower. (12)

De hemelen en aarde (waren) een samenhangende massa. Wij hebben ze toen van elkaar gescheiden… Wij hebben de hemel tot een beschermend dak gemaakt … en de dag en de nacht, de zon en de maan geschapen. (Koran 41 11:12)
