The subject of Physics, which deals with measurement of physical quantities, a new system of units, called the International System or the SI system of units is progressively being used in the latest books on this subject. In this book, the SI system has been used for the derivation of the formulae and solved examples. Chapters on A.C Circuits, use of J-operator has been recast and greatly extended. Elements of electronic leading to the principles of radio communication are well explained by using thermionic valve and transistor circuits. Also, since there is a tendency to use the vector method of treatment of the subject of Electricity and Magnetism. An effort has been made to express the formulae in the vector form particularly in the derivation of Maxwell's Equations of electromagnetic fields. Chapters on Atomic Physics have been amplified. A brief description of the Maser and Laser and a list of values of constants are given in the Appendix. Selected questions set of different university and I.A.S. examinations have been incorporated. It is expected that the solution of problems at the end of each chapter will enable the student to understand the subject clearly.
