کتاب مباني مکانيک و ترمو ديناميک(Elementary Mechanics and Thermodynamics )

بر پايه ديباچه ، هدف از تدوين و نگارش اين کتاب اين حقیقت بوده که پرداختن بگونه اي مدرنيته و نوشتاري ( نه فقط در فيزيک بلکه در رياضي ، فيزیولوژی و شيمی ) درست است که ساده است اما نه برای دانشجویان و نه برای آموزگاران مفيد فايده نخواهد بود. تصور اینکه یک دانشجو بخواهد هفته ای 50 صفحه را مطالعه کرده و به100 مسئله آن پاسخ دهد ، طاقت فرسا و غیر ممکن می باشد.

خب برای حل این مشکل –  نویسنده –  این کتاب را با قالبی خلاصه تر ( بطوریکه امکان تشریح مطالب و حل تمرینهای آن در مدت محدود یک ترم تحصیلی قابل انجام باشد ) تدوین نموده و سعی کرده با ارائه مثالهای عملی و ملموس ذهن دانشجو را با ریشه مطالب آشنا سازد.

اين کتاب مشتمل بر 15 فصل است و نوشته  پروفسور John W. Norbury بوده که در November 20, 2000‎ به رشته تحریر درآمده .

PREFACE
 
The  reason  for  writing  this  book  was  due  to  the  fact  that  modern  intro- ductory textbooks (not only in physics, but also mathematics, psychology, chemistry) are simply not useful to either students or instructors.  The typ- ical freshman textbook in physics, and other fields, is over 1000 pages long, with maybe 40 chapters and over 100 problems per chapter.  This is overkill!
A typical semester is 15 weeks long, giving 30 weeks at best for a year long course.   At  the  fastest possible  rate,  we  can  ”cover”  only  one  chapter  per week.  For a year long course that is 30 chapters at best.  Thus ten chapters
of the typical book are left out!  1500 pages divided by 30 weeks is about 50 pages per week.  The typical text is quite densed mathematics and physics and it’s simply impossible for a student to read all of this in the detail re- quired.  Also with 100 problems per chapter, it’s not possible for a student to do 100 problems each week.  Thus it is impossible for a student to fully read and  do  all  the  problems  in  the  standard  introductory  books.   Thus  these books are not useful to students or instructors teaching the typical course!
 
In  defense  of  the  typical  introductory  textbook,  I  will  say  that  their content is usually excellent and very well writtten.  They are certainly very fine  reference books,  but  I  believe  they  are  poor  text books.   Now  I  know what  publishers  and  authors  say  of  these  books.  Students  and  instructors are supposed to only cover a selection of the material.  The books are written
so that an instructor can pick and choose the topics that are deemed best for  the  course,  and  the  same  goes  for  the  problems.   However  I  object  to this.  At the end of the typical course, students and instructors are left with a  feeling  of  incompleteness,  having  usually  covered  only  about  half  of  the book and only about ten percent of the problems.  I want a textbook that is self contained.  As an instructor, I want to be able to comfortably cover one short chapter each week, and to have each student read the entire chapter and  do  every  problem.   I  want  to  say  to  the  students  at  the  beginning  of the course that they should read the entire book from cover to cover and do every problem.  If they have done that, they will have a good knowledge of introductory physics.
 
This  is  why  I  have  written  this  book.   Actually  it  is  based  on  the  in- troductory physics textbook by Halliday, Resnick and Walker [Fundamental of  Physics,  5th  ed.,  by  Halliday,  Resnick  and  Walker,  (Wiley,  New  York,
1997)], which is an outstanding introductory physics reference book.  I had been  using  that  book  in  my  course,  but  could  not  cover  it  all  due  to  the reasons listed above.
