About the Author

NIKHIL RANJAN ROY :-  
He retired as Professor and Head of the Department of Physics, Ranchi University, Ranchi. His teaching experience spans 40 years during which he taught undergraduate and postgraduate students and successfully guided PhD aspirants. Post his retirement he engages himself by guiding MSc (Physics) students to prepare for NET, GATE and SLET examinations. He is also actively involved in writing books.
 

About the Book

 
The book deals with the mechanics of particles and rigid bodies. It is written for the undergraduate students of physics and meets the syllabus requirements of most Indian universities. It also covers the entire syllabus on classical/analytical mechanics for various national and state level examinations like NET, GATE and SLET. Some of the topics in the book are included in the curricula of applied mathematics in several institutions as well.
 

Key Features

 
• Main emphasis is on the evolution of the subject, the underlying ideas, the concepts, the laws and the mathematical methods
• Written in the style of classroom teaching so that the students may benefit from it by way of self-study
• Step-by-step derivation of concepts, with each step clearly numbered
• Concepts explained with the help of relevant examples to aid understanding
