Content Pack Description
Physics: Mechanics, Waves and Acoustics is an introductory undergraduate course that covers mechanics, sound, oscillations, and waves.
This OpenStax course emphasizes connections between theory and application, making physics concepts interesting and accessible to students while maintaining the mathematical rigour inherent in the subject. Frequent, strong examples focus on how to approach a problem, how to work with the equations, and how to check and generalize the result. Assignments in every chapter contain algorithmic problems promoting independent work, academic integrity and problem-solving skills in students.
