Detail Page

written by Aaron Titus
This web page contains problems to supplement the introductory textbook Matter and Interactions, by Ruth Chabay and Bruce Sherwood. These problems are designed for use with Volume 1, Chapter 8: Multiparticle Systems. The exercises promote understanding of both the Momentum Principle and the Energy Principle when applied in multi-particle systems. Each problem can be viewed separately, with solutions, or downloaded as a pdf file.

The site includes videos showing solutions to many of the problems. These can be followed with RSS or as podcasts from iTunes. Instructors are encouraged to submit their own problems and solutions. Problems should be submitted in LaTeX; ample support is provided for this process on the web site.
