Oscillations, Waves and Acoustics, 1/e

The present book is meant for the students of undergraduate Science and Engineering courses. This course finds lots of applications, right from Mechanics, Sound, Optics, Solid State Physics, Electrodynamics to Electronics. The chapters cover a vast number of topics like free, forced, damped oscillations, normal modes of vibrations, sound waves, overdamped and ballistic oscillations, LCR circuits etc. In every chapter the topics are dealt with in detail followed by illustrated solved examples and unsolved exercises. Some previous experience with a Calculus course in which differential equations have been discussed is highly desirable. However, the details of the steps in arriving at final solutions are worked out in detail. The book, thus, acts like any textbook and at the same time no help book is needed for further details.

1. Simple Harmonic Motion
2. Free, Damped and Forced Vibrations
3. Circuit Transients - Damped and Forced Oscillations
4. Addition of Simple Harmonic Motions: Lissajous Figures
5. Normal Modes of Vibration: Coupled Oscillations
6. Wave Motion
7. Velocity of Sound
8. Stationary Waves, Interference and Beats
9. Reflection, Refraction and Diffraction
10. Vibrations in Strings, Air Columns and Rods
11.Fourier's Theorem
12.Architectural Acoustics
13. Ultrasonics
14. Some Miscellaneous Acoustical Phenomena
15.Electromagnetic Waves
16.Matter Waves, Shock Waves and Seismic Waves

  •  The book essentially covers all important topics in sound and acoustics.
  • Apart from theory, the book discusses real-world phenomena.
  • Profusely illustrated with line drawings for sound understating of the subject matter.
  • Includes a lot of solved problems, and end-of-the-chapter exercises with key answers.
