      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      What do the different tags like 'In Stock', 'Available' mean?

      'In Stock'

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Simple yet Beautiful

    After having used the book in discussion for quite some time, i can say with conviction that it is a mechanics enthusiast's delight.

    The problems test ones ability to use the theory known to them in a simple yet imaginative way.The algebra is not as elaborate as required in I.E.Irodov, so if Mr Irodov has dissappointed you, pick this one up!

    I must warn you that this is not an IITJEE preparation book, however, so stick to H.C.Verma if the JEE is your target.

    Russian Classic

    The book grew out of Russian physics olympiads from 1968-1985, and quite clearly reveals the excellent Russian culture when it comes to physics competitions. The book covers mechanics, heat and thermodynamics, electrodynamics, and optics, and has 240 problems in all.

    The book challenges the readers to go on to explore elegant arguments to arrive at the solution with the use of minimal mathematics. Usually, the problem at hand can be breached in multiple ways, and Krotov attempts to look for ...

    this book is one of the best books i have ever tried to delve.... if you are a psycho physics lover.. welcome this is a book for you.. there are some who have a misconception that it isn't a book for IIT JEE, but let me inform you it is. infact there are certain concept building questions and i have solved irodov as well, let me make it clear, apart from a few, there are scarce coincidence between the two.. both have different aroma

    This book is really good but if you have I.E.irodov then it won't be of much help as the problems are almost the same.I won't recommend this book if you are preparing it for exams like aiee or others but it is a thought provoking book, you can buy it if you have real interest in classical physics.
