This custom version of one of the world's most successful and popular book combines the Resnick and Halliday approach to physics with IIT-JEE entrance requirements. The readers can rely on it not only for its clear and accurate presentation of basic concepts, but also for its ability to demonstrate the power of physics in explaining the world around us. The highlight of this version is the new end of chapter material containing all question types as per IIT-JEE pattern: Reasoning type, Multiple-choice questions and Problems. For interested students who wish to enhance their problem-solving skills further, Additional Problems have also been provided. Salient Features Relevant insertions and deletions for complete coverage of IIT-JEE syllabus. Reorganization of chapters to make the flow consistent with IIT-JEE syllabus pattern. Inclusion of additional sample problems to cover all requirements of the examination. Each chapter contains Opening teasers giving puzzling situations open each chapter with explanation given within the text Checkpoints are stopping points to know if the concepts explained are clear Pointed finger to mark key sentences for quick visual identification Conceptual problems for the students to grasp the topic and gain practical knowledge about problem solving Well-labeled figures throughout the text to help visualizing concepts Problem solving tactics with instructions to guide the students on how to attempt problems and avoid common errors Sample problems solved with unique problem-solving technique, 4Cs (Conceptualize, Classify, Compute, Conclude). End of chapter material containing all question types as per IIT-JEE pattern: Reasoning and Assertion type Multiple-choice Problems Answer to all Checkpoints, Reasoning type questions, Multiple-choice questions, Problems and Additional Problems at the end of each chapter. Previous 5 years solved IIT-JEE problems included as appendix. Solved IIT-JEE Physics Paper 2012 appended at the end of the book. Seven Appendices to aid students. Appendix A The International System of Unit (SI) Appendix B Some Fundamental Constants of Physics Appendix C Some Astronomical Data Appendix D Conversion Factors Appendix E Mathematical Formulas Appendix F Properties of the Elements Appendix G Solved IIT-JEE Problems Pedagogy includes: More than 250 solved problems and examples. More than 100 checkpoints. More than 100 reasoning type questions. More than 550 multiple-choice questions. More than 750 practice problems. More than 250 additional problems for interested students. Numerous figures and tables for reference. Previous 5 years solved IIT-JEE problems included as appendix. Solved IIT-JEE paper 2012 provided at end of book. About the Author David Halliday is associated with the University of Pittsburgh as Professor Emeritus. As department chair in 1960, he and Robert Resnick collaborated on Physics for Students of Science and Engineering and then on Fundamentals of Physics. Fundamentals is currently in its eighth edition and has since been handed over from Halliday and Resnick to Jearl Walker. Dr. Halliday is retired and resides in Seattle. Robert Resnick is professor emeritus at Rensselaer and the former Edward P. Hamilton Distinguished Professor of Science Education, 1974-93. Together with his co-author David Halliday, he revolutionized physics education with their now famous textbook on general physics, still one of the most highly regarded texts in the field today. Jearl Walker, professor of physics at Cleveland State University, received his BS in physics from MIT in 1967 and his PhD in physics from University of Maryland in 1973. His book The Flying Circus of Physics was published 30 years ago, has been translated into at least 10 languages, and is still being sold worldwide. For 16 years he toured his Flying Circus talk throughout the U.S. and Canada, introducing such physics stunts as the bed-of-nails demonstration and the walking-on-hot-coals demonstration to countless physics teachers, who then proceeded to hurt themselves when they repeated the stunts in their own classrooms. These talks led to his PBS television show Kinetic Karnival which ran nationally for years and which earned an Emmy. Manish K Singhal is currently teaching IIT aspirants at Bansal Classes, Kota as a senior faculty. “Bansal classes” is the preeminent coaching institute for IIT-JEE aspirants.
