This note explains the
physics of waves and oscillations including sound, elastic and electromagnetic
waves. Topics covered includes: the theory of simple harmonic oscillators,
transverse modes of a continuous string, and physical optics including
interference, Fresnel and Fraunhofer diffraction, and resolution, to diffraction
of X-rays and electrons by crystals.
and explains vibrations, resonance, free waves, and bounded waves. Includes a
glossary, index, photo credits, and useful data page. This book is part of the
Light and Matter series of introductory physics textbooks.
note covers the following topics: introduction to vibrations and waves: simple
harmonic motion, harmonically driven damped harmonic oscillator, coupled
oscillators, driven coupled oscillators, the wave equation, solutions to the
wave equation, boundary conditions applied to pulses and waves, wave equation
in 2D and 3D, time-independent fourier analysis, fourier analysis with
traveling waves, dispersion, electromagnetic wave equation, plane polarized EM
waves, dipole radiation, EM waves meet conductors, transmission lines , EM
waves meet dielectrics, interference, interference from multiple sources,
