Mechanics, Heat, Oscillations and Waves

Mechanics, Heat, Oscillations and Waves. Instructor: Professor V. Balakrishnan, Department of Physics, IIT Madras. The course will deal, respectively, with a limited selection of specific topics included in the CBSE Std. XI and Std. XII physics curricula. The topics to be discussed are those which involve basic concepts and fundamental principles, and which therefore have wide applicability. They are also the topics that are conceptually the deepest, and must therefore be understood as clearly as possible. This will be the overall objective of the courses. (from nptel.ac.in)
