Dr David Hughes, University of Sheffield
|A real gem of a book. Compactly arranged in an
attractive tabular style,
this handbook has just about every equation, definition and formula
you might want in doing undergraduate-level physics and astrophysics. I
really like it. It's one book I won't lend out.
Professor Paul Hodge, University of Washington, Seattle
|This handbook is a stimulating and crisp synopsis of

Professor Adam Burrows, University of Arizona, Tucson
|An extremely useful collection of formulas from all
branches of physics.
Lecturers and students will find it invaluable.
Professor Andrew King, University of Leicester
|This book is worth its weight in gold. It gives not
only the formulas,
but each symbol in the formula is explained as to what it represents.

It has all the

to need, and if it's not in here you can always derive it! Easy to

Likely to be on the "suggested" booklist for any department that sees
it, this book hardly ever left my side at uni and is still useful.

|This book is one of the
best, and I mean best, purchases I have ever
made. It provides clear, consistent tables of physical values and
equations, which can be a godsend in a land of inconsistent, confusing,
and sometimes odd notation. Also useful is its Rosetta Stone-esque
conversion table, which shows the values of myriad measures (including
the US and UK values of the firkin, should one ever need to know,) into
nice, clean SI units. The comprehensive index and well organized
sections make finding the proper equation easy as well. This
book has been useful in practically all of my physics coursework so
far, and I anticipate it remaining a useful reference beyond my

|This book is a must for every physicist - it contains

|The Cambridge Handbook of Physics Formulas is one of
the most useful
books that any Undergraduate Physics student could ever use. It
virtually all the key equations needed as well as a plethora of
identities. It also has important constants, units, and conversions, as
well as a very nice section on dimensions. However, the preface's
ought to be heeded - it states that the book is designed to be a
for when you already understand the physics involved and not to teach
physics. It is intended to 'quickly deliver the relationship they [the
reader] require in a format that avoids the need to sift through pages
of rubric.' Woan certainly delivers this in the book, and I have yet to
find a better source for this purpose. 10/10
