The book has the following chapters each of which has its own end of chapter problems:

**Mathematics**- Complex numbers, complex exponentials, partial derivatives, experimental uncertainties.

**Elasticity**- Stress, strain, moduli of elasticity, bulk stress, strain and modulus

**Fluid Statics**- pressure, Pascal's law, measuring pressures, Archimedes' principle

**Fluid Dynamics**- continuity equation, Bernoulli's equation, Torricelli's law, viscosity, Poiseuille's law, Stokes' law

**Oscillations**- simple harmonic motion, simple and compound pendulums, damped harmonic motion, driven oscillators

**Waves**- types of waves, mathematical description of a wave, waves on a string, acoustic waves, wave power and intensity

**Wave Interactions**- principle of superposition, reflection at a boundary, interference, beats, standing waves, the relativistic and non-relativistic doppler effect

**Light Waves**- basic geometric optics, Huyghens' principle, dispersion, polarization, thin film interference, diffraction

**Introduction to Quantum Mechanics**- atomic spectra, blackbody spectrum, photo-electric effect, Bohr atom, de Broglie wavelength, Schrodinger equation

In addition there are two appendices which cover some of the more mathematically challenging topics in detail:

**Wave Equations**- derivation and general solution of the partial differential wave equation, derivation of the pressure and displacement wave equation for acoustic waves

**Blackbody Spectrum**- 2D and 3D standing waves, density of states for a cavity, calculation of Planck's spectrum, derivation of Wien's displacement law
