CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The overall goal of this calculus-based text is to provide an introduction to
physics with a modern point of view. It emphasizes the atomic nature of matter,
macro-micro connections, and modeling complex physical systems. The approach is
designed to go beyond low-level physics and to build upon readers' prior
The first volume deals with mechanics and thermal physics in a unified way,
with strong emphasis on atomic-level description and analysis. The
ball-and-spring model of solids is a major theme, culminating in computing the
specific heat as a function of temperature for an Einstein solid, using the
concepts of statistical mechanics.
