## Physics## Cavendish Quantum Mechanics Primer## DescriptionThis primer takes able readers from their penultimate school year to well into the second year quantum mechanics course in physics at Cambridge University. It is not a textbook, but a primer introducing essential ideas, analytical skills and the solving of problems --- much in the style of the Cambridge physics course. Chapters 1 - 3 expand the lectures given at the Senior Physics Challenge (http://www-spc.phy.cam.ac.uk), a Cambridge Physics development course for schools. Chapters 2 - 5 are also suitable for university courses. Chapter 1 is available as a free sample. For this and for further details of the Primer, including details also of how to order in bulk, see http://www.cavendish-quantum.org.uk/ Chapter 1 revises essential school mathematics and classical physics used throughout this book and in higher physics generally. It also prepares for university entrance. Readers will find the required calculus and functions familiar, but will be guided to their use in solving physical problems. Such fluency and facility is essential for further study and for the transition to university. Subsequent chapters explore ideas of confinement and uncertainty energies, atoms, pair production, tunnelling into forbidden regions, the quantum oscillator and the quantisation of strings and oscillations of fields, higher dimensions, particles in nano-structures, and quantum dynamics. Readers solve such problems in their full mathematical depth. Some problems are solved as examples, others have hints only. Books are sold (UK only) at cost price, £1 per copy, (+ pp £2.50 per book, UK 2nd class post) for orders of 1 or 2 books. ISBN: 978-0-9572873-0-3 ## HOW TO SOLVE PHYSICS PROBLEMS on Isaac Physics & Beyond## DescriptionHOW TO SOLVE PHYSICS PROBLEMS is a practical guide to using your pre-university physics knowledge to create solutions for unfamiliar situations. Combining hand-written answers with commentary, it illustrates the problem-solving processes involved, as well as highlighting the importance of good diagrams and clear, logical working. It also demonstrates how different methods can be used to arrive at the same solution, and how common mathematical tricks can be used across different areas of physics. The problem-solving skills illustrated in this book will help you to solve physics problems on Isaac Physics and beyond, as well as problems in other spheres of life. Books are sold (UK only) at cost price, £1 per copy, (+ pp £2.50 per book, UK 2nd class post) for orders of 1 or 2 books.
