By Anwar Kamal

This textbook explains the experimental fundamentals, results and concept of nuclear physics. It helps studying and educating with a number of labored examples, questions and issues of solutions. quite a few tables and diagrams aid to higher comprehend the reasons. a greater feeling to the topic of the e-book is given with sketches concerning the ancient improvement of nuclear physics. the most subject matters of this e-book comprise the phenomena linked to passage of charged debris and radiation via topic that are regarding nuclear resonance fluorescence and the Moessbauer effect., Gamov’s conception of alpha decay, Fermi concept of beta decay, electron catch and gamma decay. The dialogue of basic homes of nuclei covers nuclear sizes and nuclear strength, nuclear spin, magnetic dipole second and electrical quadrupole second. Nuclear instability opposed to quite a few modes of deterioration and Yukawa thought are defined. Nuclear versions reminiscent of Fermi gasoline version, Shell version, Liquid Drop version, Collective version and Optical version are defined to give an explanation for a variety of experimental evidence concerning nuclear constitution. Heavy ion reactions, together with nuclear fusion, are defined. Nuclear fission and fusion strength creation is taken care of elaborately.

To Explain the World: The Discovery of Modern Science

A masterful observation at the historical past of technological know-how from the Greeks to fashionable occasions, by way of Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg—a thought-provoking and demanding e-book by way of essentially the most wonderful scientists and intellectuals of our time. during this wealthy, irreverent, and compelling heritage, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg takes us throughout centuries from old Miletus to medieval Baghdad and Oxford, from Plato’s Academy and the Museum of Alexandria to the cathedral institution of Chartres and the Royal Society of London.

Game Physics

Create bodily real looking 3D portraits environments with this creation to the information and strategies at the back of the method. writer David H. Eberly comprises simulations to introduce the major difficulties concerned after which steadily unearths the mathematical and actual strategies had to clear up them. He then describes the entire algorithmic foundations and makes use of code examples and dealing resource code to teach how they're applied, culminating in a wide number of actual simulations.

Quantum Theory of Solids (Oxford Classic Texts in the Physical Sciences)

This booklet develops the topic from the elemental ideas of quantum mechanics. The emphasis is on a unmarried assertion of the tips underlying some of the approximations that experience for use and care is taken to split sound arguments from conjecture. This e-book is written for the coed of theoretical physics who desires to paintings within the box of solids and for the experimenter with a data of quantum conception who's no longer content material to take different people's arguments with no consideration.

Quantum Enigma: Physics Encounters Consciousness

In attempting to comprehend the atom, physicists outfitted quantum mechanics, the main winning concept in technological know-how and the root of one-third of our financial system. they discovered, to their embarrassment, that with their conception, physics encounters attention. Authors Bruce Rosenblum and Fred Kuttner clarify all this in non-technical phrases with support from a few fanciful tales and anecdotes in regards to the theory's builders.
