Basic Themes of Physics.
Uehling, E. A.
This monograph constitutes the first five chapters of an introductory course in physics for students who do not intend to become professional physicists. The over-all themes and ideas of physics receive the major emphasis, with little stress placed on mathematical manipulation. The style of presentation is mainly a combination of the axiomatic and the historical. This mode of writing, as well as organization and selection of topics, was based on the author's estimation of what would most enhance student interest and understanding. The five chapters in order of presentation are Introduction, Kinematical Preliminaries, Dynamical Principles, Force, and Motion Under the Influence of Gravitational Forces. (PR)
