Physics E-book Collection


E-books have turned into an essential need of the modern-day learner with the ongoing developments in the field of information and communication technology (ICT). With that comes the necessity of acquiring knowledge through such electronic resources especially in a cost-effective manner. Therefore, this e-book collection is dedicated to those who are willing to expand their knowledge either targeting an exam or targeting general awareness. 

About the Creator of the E-book Collection



Mr. S.T.Sadeeshvara Udayanga is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Waikato, New Zealand. Previously, he was attached to the Research Council of University of Kelaniya. He graduated with a 1st class honors degree in physics and has a Diploma in Information Technology as well. Apart from this collection of eBooks, he maintains another collection of lecture notes available at: http://www.lecturenotesinphysics.com/.
