Concepts of Physics (Volume - 2) covers an exhaustive list of topics that are necessary for a pre-college student. The book provides many examples and exercises based on these concepts, and these cater to students preparing for competitive exams, mainly those pertaining to the fields of engineering and medicine. H C Verma’s Concepts of Physics is a comprehensive theoretical and conceptual guide that covers topics ranging from heat and temperature to semiconductor devices. The book starts with a chapter on Heat and Temperature and Kinetic Theory of Gases and explains the terminologies, units and problems that will be used through the course of the chapter. Further, the laws of thermodynamics and heat transfer are explained before the subject moves towards concepts like electric field and potential. The same chapter covers topics like capacitors, Gauss’s Law and electric current in conductors. The subsequent chapters encompass topics like magnetic fields, permanent magnets, magnetic fields due to current, and electromagnetic waves. The final portion of the book explains the special theory of relativity. The book has two Appendix sections that provide an insight into the terminologies and definitions covered in the book. Dr. Verma’s books are appreciated by students because of his detailed take on the subject and the wide range of numerical problems provided. The book serves as ideal study material for competitive exams like IIT-JEE and other state level engineering exams.
