The physics of vibrations and waves

Author: H J Pain
Publisher: Chichester ; New York : Wiley, ©1999.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : 5th edView all editions and formats
Summary:
"Using a practical, applied approach, this book gives a solid grounding in the theory of waves, vibrations and optics, together with demonstrating the pattern and unity of a large part of physics. To aid comprehension a large number of problems at varying degrees of difficulty are given together with hints for solution."--Jacket.
