## Description

Worked Examples in Physics: A Textbook for Private Study consists of worked examples encountered at examinations in secondary schools at Moscow University. The examples for this collection focus on those physical questions, situations, and laws that give rise to the most number of errors.

Organized into two parts, this book begins with an overview of several problems that have been specially selected to show in detail the methods of applying the more important laws, which often are not mastered by the student. This text then discusses the general methods of solving problems by means of the resolution and composition of the motion. This book discusses as well a large number of examples that serves to indicate how one may reduce the solution of a complicated problem on curvilinear motion to the solution of a simple and previously solved problem dealing with two independent linear motions.

This book is a valuable resource for secondary school students.
