This section is an attempt to point out major differences between the two editions of the text. Note that the Suggested Exercises and Problems for Practice for the 2nd edition of the text appear in pdf of the PowerPoint in which they were suggested.
Figure 20.2 from the 1st edition has been dropped in the 2nd edition
The 2nd edition has added a discussion of decibels.
1st edition: 1, 25, 35, 39, 53, 69, 71, 79, 82
This Chapter is largely identical in the two editions, except that in the 2nd edition Figure 21.14 has been expanded.
1st edition: 7, 19, 25, 31, 49, 65, 71, 83 (skip part b, just use the result)
These are largely identical with one exception. The 2nd edition has a sub-section of Section 22.6 dealing with the Michelson Interferometer; this discussion is missing from the 1st edition. We will be discussing this interferometer not only as part of the Waves section of the course but also in the Relativity section. Thus, I urge you to read about this device in the 2nd edition.
Problems 3 and 29 from the 2nd edition do not appear in the 1st edition. Problems that do appear in the 1st edition are: 5, 34, 71
The discussion of magnification is dropped.
The "derivation" of Snell's Law, which we sketched in in class, does not appear in the 1st edition
What the 1st edition calls magnification M is called the lateral magnification m in the 2nd edition.
This Section in the 1st edition has been moved to Chapter 24 in the 2nd edition.
This Section in the 2nd edition does not exist in the 1st edition.
