What is that formula? Where did I see it? How can I check it?
These are common-enough posers for the busy physicist. But now there need be no more library-searching or head-scratching for that elusive data.
Here at last is a single volume which summarizes the entire world of physics. An important learning tool for the student, an invaluable reference for the professional.
In Physics Handbook you can quickly locate any data and formulae you need. Clearly presented, extensively indexed, this impressive work includes:
Numerical values (in SI as well as other appropriate units) of the fundamental constants of physics, numerical values of non-SI units etc.
Data on mechanical, thermal, electric, atomic, nuclear, solid state and other properties of numerous materials, including the elements of the periodic table and astronomical objects.
A wide selection of physical notation and formulae, mathematical formulae, equations, integrals etc.
The tables comprise extensive nuclear data, including binding energy, half-life, fission product yields, cross-sections, decay modes, and decay energies of numerous nuclides.
Whether you are a student of physics, a tutor or a practising physicist, you should possess a personal copy of the Physics Handbook, compiled as the first-ever book of its kind with your needs in mind, by Carl Nordling, Professor Emeritus of Physics at Uppsala University and former chairman of the Nobel Committee for Physics of The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, and Jonny Österman, Master of Science in Engineering Physics and Computer Technology.
In the ninth edition the entire book has been revised. Most tables have been updated with more up-to-date values, some new tables have been added, the chapters on electronics have been rewritten, and the parts with formulae have been improved.
