Elementary Physics II: Oscillations, Waves
by Satindar Bhagat
Publisher: Bookboon 2014
Number of pages: 264
We begin by discussing waves in matter - sound being a special case. To understand the nature of light we begin by introducing Electric and Magnetic fields and build the relationships which develop into what are arguably among the most powerful equations in Physics: Maxwell's Electromagnetic Field Equations.

The wave is a physical phenomenon that is found in a variety of contexts. The purpose of this text is to describe the kinematics of waves, i.e., to provide tools for describing the form and motion of all waves irrespective of their mechanisms.

The object of this book is to consider from an elementary standpoint as many different types of wave motion as possible. In almost every case the fundamental problem is the same, since it consists in solving the standard equation of wave motion.
