Book Description – Concepts of Physics by HC Verma
Concepts of Physics by HC Verma – The book offers a calculus-based physics course that makes free use of algebra, trigonometry, and coordinate geometry. The level of the latter three subjects is fairly simple and high school math is sufficient. Calculus is usually done at the introductory college level and I have assumed that the student is enrolled in a concurrent first calculus course. The relevant parts of calculus are discussed in Chapter 2 so that the student can start using it from the beginning.
There exist excellent books on physics at the elementary college level so why a new one? In the first place, why do so many books exist on the same level, and why are each of them so highly appreciated? This is because each of these books has the privilege of having an author or authors who have experienced physics and have their own way of communicating with students. During my years as a physics teacher, I have developed a somewhat different approach to presenting physics to students. Concepts of Physics This method is translated into a textbook.
About the Author
Padma Shri Prof. Harish Chandra Verma was a Professor in the Department of Physics at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. Before joining IIT Kanpur, he served as a lecturer and reader at the College of Science, Patna University (1979–1994). His research interests are in nanofabrication using focused ion beams, magnetism in graphite upon irradiation by ion beams, nanosize (4 nm–20 nm) magnetic materials, Fe-based alloys, earth science, etc. He has published 139 research papers in prestigious Magazines. He has also authored several books in Physics for school and college levels.
He has developed over 300 physics experiments that teachers can use as demos in their classes. He has also prepared a set of 45 video lectures in Hindi at the school level. Pro. Verma is a member of the executive committee of the Indian Association of Physics Teachers (IAPT), which deals with physics education in schools and colleges. Pro. Verma was associated with social work since childhood. He has been instrumental in forming a group of faculty members and students of IIT Kanpur along with local youth to run an NGO called Shiksha Sopan. The Shiksha Sopan is in direct daily contact with about 250 families through various centers in the villages around IITK. At these centers, Prof. Under Verma’s leadership, we help educate as well as educate Indian values and culture.
