Let's Review: Physics-- the physical setting
This detailed manual reviews all topics covered in the New York State high school curriculum for physics and prepares students to pass the Regents Physics Exam. Topics covered include a general introduction, motion in one dimension, forces and Newton's laws, vector quantities and their applications, circular motion and gravitation, momentum and its conservation, work and energy, the properties of matter, static electricity, electric current and circuits, magnetism and electromagnetism, waves and sound, light and geometric optics, solid-state physics, modern physics from Planck's hypothesis to Einstein's special theory of relativity, and nuclear energy. One recently-given actual Regents Physics Exam is also presented with an answer key.
