The book, �The Feynman Lectures on Physics - Vol. I: The New Millennium Edition: Mainly Mechanics, Radiation and Heat� is a collection of lectures by Richard P. Feynman on physics. These lectures explain the basic and fundamental aspects of physics in an easy and simple language. For many students, physics is a very difficult subject. However, Feynman�s magical explanation simplifies the difficulty of the subject. This book is appreciated by students as well as teachers and is recommended by many as one of the best introductions on physics. Published by Pearson Education, that is known for its quality and reliable study books, the book serves as the foundation stone for those who want to learn physics.
Lectures over a period of two years at the California Institute of Technology are compiled in this book. The lectures include some of the crucial topics, such as The Laws of Thermodynamics, The Brownian Movement, Sound: The Wave Equation, The Theory of Gravitation and Applications of Kinetic Theory. Some of the basics of physics, such as Newton's theory and some advanced topics, such as quantum mechanics and general relativity are also covered in his lectures. The Feynman Lectures On Physics: Mainly Mechanics, Radiation, And Heat (Volume-1) is not only a highly useful book for students, but also for all those aspiring physicists who want to get a firm grasp on the knowledge of physics.
Richard P. Feynman was a physicist and notable author. Regarded as the best physicist of 20th century, he had his major achievement in the field of integral formulation of quantum mechanics. Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! and What Do You Care What Other People Think? are some of his famous books.
