Classical dynamics of particles and systems by
Jerry B Marion(
Book
)
142 editions published between 1965 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 2,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Classical Dynamics of Particles and Systems presents a modern and reasonably complete account of the classical mechanics of particles, systems of particles, and rigid bodies for physics students at the advanced undergraduate level. The book aims to present a modern treatment of classical mechanical systems in such a way that the transition to the quantum theory of physics can be made with the least possible difficulty; to acquaint the student with new mathematical techniques and provide sufficient practice in solving problems; and to impart to the student some degree of sophistication in handl

Classical electromagnetic radiation by
Jerry B Marion(
Book
)
67 editions published between 1956 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Newly corrected, this highly acclaimed text is suitable for advanced physics courses. The author presents a very accessible macroscopic view of classical electromagnetics that emphasizes integrating electromagnetic theory with physical optics. The survey follows the historical development of physics, culminating in the use of fourvector relativity to fully integrate electricity with magnetism"

Energy in perspective by
Jerry B Marion(
Book
)
25 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in English and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Energy in Perspective attempts to place the 1973 ""energy crisis"" in perspective. It discusses sources of energy, its uses, and the projections for the future. It is concerned primarily with the patterns of energy consumption, the fuels required to produce this energy, and the effect that energy usage is having on the environment. It examines the overall situation and discusses both the shortterm problems and the longterm outlook. Emphasis is given to questions of fuel supplies and new energy technologies rather than crisis remedies such as gasoline rationing, reduced speed limits, and fuel oil allocations. The book also engages in an exercise of ""futurism"": How much energy will be needed in the year 2000? In the year 2050? How much fuel can be extracted from the Earth by these dates? What new technologies will be available in 25 or 75 years? This book is intended for use in classroom courses as a text or supplementary text and for individual reading. It is not intended as a sourcebook of new and authoritative data. The figures, estimates, and projections given here are not original; instead, they represent what the author believes to be the most reliable information and the most reasonable projections available at present

Physics in the modern world by
Jerry B Marion(
Book
)
38 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in English and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Physics in the Modern World: Student's Guide provides information pertinent to the fundamental concepts in physics. This book discusses several topics in physics, including atoms, molecules, compounds, elements, as well as the fundamental units of measure in science. Comprised of 21 chapters, this book starts with an overview of the standard units of measure for length, time, mass, energy, force, pressure, and density. This text then provides the meaning of various terms in physics, including atom, molecule, element, and compound. Other chapters explore the composition and behavior of all ordinary matter in which it depends on the four basic units, including electrons, protons, neutrons, and photons. This book discusses as well the method used for converting the units of physical quantities from one system of measurement to another. The final chapter deals with the various applications of radiation in biological investigations and in medical diagnostics and therapeutics. This book is intended for students enrolled in introductory physics courses

Mathematical preparation for general physics by
Jerry B Marion(
Book
)
10 editions published between 1972 and 1975 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This textbook is intended to provide the requisite mathematical background for an introductory college course in general physics. The topics covered are: Numbers and Units; Experimental Error; Basic Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry; Functions and Graphs; Vectors; The Slide Rule; and Physical Units and Conversions. Where possible, mathematical ideas are introduced via physical examples (mostly from mechanics), and the emphasis is on operational techniques rather than mathematical rigor. There are numerous worked examples as well as exercises with answers provided. (Mm)
