This program is written for IBM PC, XT, AT, PS/2s, and all
true compatibles. All this program requires is a color monitor
with EGA, and 640 K of RAM.
Every year there are many students just like you, pondering
helplessly over impossible word problems that just boggle the
mind. Many of you are not satisfied with the way physics is
taught, or you need extra help, but your instructor doesn't have
the time. Here we will try a new approach to help students like
you to review the material that has been presented to you in
class, and to help you raise your grades. I know that physics
is not an easy subject, which is why I have written this program
to assist you.
This program includes the fundamentals of Physics. It
should be understood that Physics is a comprehensive science,and
could not be included in this one program. The approach chosen
here incorporates graphical interface with text - oriented
learning. It gives you the benefits of computer graphics while
the basics are explained in clear and understandable language.
The program itself is separated into two main parts. There is
the review section and the problem section. In the problem
section, there are problems with degrees of difficulty ranging
from the simple to the challenging. Every question has an
explanation along with the correct answer. You can treat these
problems the same you might with examples in your textbook. They
are for your practice. I am releasing a separate problems
addition to this program. It will include exercises on all
levels and will include the correct answers, all for your
practice. The ordering information will appear before you exit.
My name is Dr. Philip Zhao. I hold a Ph.D. degree in
theoretical physics and an M.S. degree in Computer Science. I
have also had 30 years of instructional and research experience.
