Phenomena of Wave - Reflection and Refraction

The SPM Physics Workbook is developed under the Free Books Project. The content of this book is strictly follow Malaysia SPM (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia) syllabus. The aim of this project is to provide a complete electronic supplementary network for students to develop self-learning skills by breaking the spoon-feed rituals and to encourage them to compile educational information from the Internet.
