This open access textbook takes the reader step-by-step through the concepts of mechanics in a clear and detailed manner. Mechanics is considered to be the core of physics, where a deep understanding of the concepts is essential in understanding all branches of physics. Many proofs and examples are included to help the reader grasp the fundamentals fully, paving the way to deal with more advanced topics. After solving all of the examples, the reader will have gained a solid foundation in mechanics and the skills to apply the concepts in a variety of situations.
The book is useful for undergraduate students majoring in physics and other science and engineering disciplines. It can also be used as a reference for more advanced levels.
Salma Alrasheed received her bachelor’s degree in physics form King Saud University. She later obtained her master’s degree in physics from Michigan State University, after which she completed a postgraduate certificate in nanotechnology from the University of Oxford. She later completed her PhD degree in materials science and engineering from King Abdullah University for Science and Technology in 2017.
Her research mainly focuses on:
• Plasmonics, nanophotonics, nanophysics, beam physics and theoretical physics
• Modeling and simulations in physics and related fields
She has a teaching experience in physics for school and university levels. She is interested in bringing new approaches in teaching physics. Her goal is to emphasize critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration in addition to the problem-solving skills that make students experts in the subject.
