IGNOU BSc Physics - Oscillations and Waves BPHE-102

The phenomena we normally observe in nature can broadly be classified into two categories: those concerned with matter and those concerned with waves. Physics courses usually begin with discussion of phenomena dealing with mechanics of matter and properties of matter. Next comes the phenomena of waves. Of our five senses, two deal with the waves — hearing and seeing. Our contact with the external world is mainly through these two senses.
