Understanding Physics for JEE Main & Advanced – Waves & Thermodynamics A powerhouse of knowledge, a foundation stone for the future success, the textbooks have always held their relevance high be it for a first grader or the one preparing for IIT JEE. Same is the significance of textbooks which play a crucial role in achieving success in various engineering entrances like IIT JEE Mains & Advanced. The textbooks designed for engineering entrances aim at presenting the in-depth knowledge which helps the students grasp the concepts better leading to a strong foundation of exhaustive knowledge and ultimately the success seems near. Understanding Physics for JEE Main & Advanced authored by Mr. D.C. Pandey has become a synonym with success in JEE Main & Advanced. The series containing five books covering Electricity & Magnetism, Waves & Thermodynamics, Optics & Modern Physics, Mechanics Part 1 and Mechanics Part 2 has been written by an author with years of experience in the field of teaching physics and whose books are always in demand among the students preparing for IIT JEE. Waves & Thermodynamics of Understanding Physics Series covers waves and the wave motion and the concepts of the thermodynamics in an effective and easily comprehensible way. The book has been divided into six chapters Wave Motion, Superposition of Waves, Sound Waves, Thermometry, Thermal Expansion & Kinetic Theory of Gases, Laws of Thermodynamics and Calorimetry & Heat Transfer, each focusing on concept building & application of the concepts in solving varied physical problems based on the concepts.
This is the only book having detailed Text Matter along with all types of questions like Single Correct Option, Multiple Correct Option, Assertion-Reason, Comprehension Based Questions and Single Integer Answers. The exercises have been divided into two sections i.e. JEE Main and JEE Advanced. The book also includes questions on Experimental Physics and ‘Hints & Solutions’ section at the end. The present comprehensible guide thoroughly covers various topics, their theory and also example exercises to facilitate proper understanding of the topics. The textual matter in the book has also been well explained with diagrams, graphs, illustrations and tables to facilitate easy understanding. Also some sample examples given before the text helps in enhancing the students’ understanding of the topic. In order to help the student test his abilities, the author has also included introductory exercises for each topic. After the comprehensive study of the concepts covered in the chapters, solved examples based on the same have also been given. Specific pattern of questions asked in JEE Main and JEE Advanced have been covered in two separate sections in practice exercises at the end of each chapter. At the end of the book Hints & Solutions for all the exercises have been given for comprehensive understanding of the concepts on which the problems are based.
