IIT JEE Physics Problems and Solutions Volume I is an excellent resource for high school students, who are
determined to acquire the confidence and skill to tackle the IIT JEE Physics
paper through self-study. Volume I covers statics, dynamics, thermodynamics and liquids. Volume II covers electricity,
magnetism, light, sound and modern physics.
This volume contains solutions to more than 400 problems from
Irodov's Problems in General Physics that are within the scope of the
IIT JEE syllabus. There are other problems and solutions as well. The solutions
are sound, short and crisp and the use of diagrams is lavish.
An important component is the 100 pages of notes, which are
concise compilations of theories and results needed to solve the problems.
Gautam Ganguli is a metallurgical engineer and a
gold medallist in the Senior Cambridge School Leaving Examinations in 1959. He
graduated from IIT Kharagpur in 1963.
A hands-on professional, he retired from the
corporate sector in 2014 as the President of the BRG Group of Industries.
Despite the professional demands on his time, he
has always had a continued interest in the interface between academics and
industry, training of young engineers in modern technology and the
encouragement of high school students to opt for engineering as a career.
In this publication, he has painstakingly edited
and compiled the tutorial notes and solved examples left behind by the late Dr
Ram Gopal Chatterji, who taught Physics at IIT Kharagpur until his retirement
in 1982 and coached high school students for the IIT Joint Entrance
Examinations thereafter almost till his death in 2000.
Gautam has brought to this task the same
uncompromising insistence on quality and precision that characterize his
