Description

Problems in General Physics is a comprehensive book for students pursuing advanced courses in Physics. The book comprises of chapters on physical fundamentals of mechanics, thermodynamics and molecular physics, electrodynamics, oscillations and waves, optics, and atomic and nuclear physics. In addition, there are numerous solved and unsolved questions and hints for understanding the complex concepts of physics better. This book is essential for students preparing for competitive exams like AIEEE, NTSE, IIT-JEE, and Physics Olympiad.

About Igor Irodov

Igor Irodov was a renowned Physicist from Russia. Apart from this book, Irodov has written a number of other books including Fundamentals Laws Of Mechanics, Basic Laws Of Electromagnetism, and Basic Laws Of Electromagnetism. Irodov was born on the 16th of November, 1923, in RSFSR. He attended the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute and completed his degree in Physical and Mathematical Sciences in the year 1954. Irodov began to work as an assistant in the Department of Physics at the same university. He passed away on the 22nd of October, 2002.

What's new in 4th Edition

I E Irodov died in 2002 and there has been no additions to the since time immemorial, What arihant is putting in newer editions?

Book review: This book is excellent for someone willing to be an expert of problem solving in physics. It covers ideas which goes beyond IIT and is an ideal companion for people looking for physics olympiad.

Contains errors!

Though this book is one of best challenging books but the quality given by arihant is poor and is not up to the mark, it contains errors to few problems in section 2 and 4 and some questions diagrams are not proper.

Dont go for this irodov go for CBS publishers's irodov which is far better!

No offense against the book but flipkart's service is way too disappointing.

Needless to say this book is the best if you are an IIT aspirant & love problem solving. You must get your concepts cleared before you solve the problems in this book or else you will never get any question right. I ordered this book a week ago. Flipkart should have delivered it by Tuesday 1st July, 2014, but the book has not arrived yet. I have been waiting for it but surprisingly my order gets automatically cancelled & I receive a message from Flipkart about the cancellation of my order. Wh...

Regarding the book I have now, I'd say it's satisfactory, c...

Buy only if you want the ticket to IIT

buy only if want a rank in jee advanced.If you are preparing for for only jee main or bitsat or any other engineering entrance then no need to buy this gem!! After trying 2 to 3 time you dont get any of the problem you can watch the solutions on youtube of iitbrain
