This book arms engineers with the tools to apply key physics concepts in the field. A number of the key figures in the new edition are revised to provide a more inviting and informative treatment. The figures are broken into component parts with supporting commentary so that they can more readily see the key ideas. Material from The Flying Circus is incorporated into the chapter opener puzzlers, sample problems, examples and end-of-chapter problems to make the subject more engaging. Checkpoints enable them to check their understanding of a question with some reasoning based on the narrative or sample problem they just read. Sample Problems also demonstrate how engineers can solve problems with reasoned solutions. INCLUDES PARTS 1-4 PART 5 IN FUNDAMENTALS OF PHYSICS, EXTENDED

In a breezy, easy-to-understand style, Fundamentals of Physics offers a solid understanding of fundamental physics concepts, and helps readers apply this conceptual understanding to quantitative problem solving. This text continues to outperform the competition year after year, and the new edition will be no exception. The Sixth edition of this extraordinary text is a major redesign of the best-selling Fifth edition, which still maintains many of the elements that led to its enormous success. The primary goal of this text is to provide readers with a solid understanding of fundamental physics concepts, and to help them apply this conceptual understanding to quantitative problem solving.
Market_Desc: · Physicists· Physics Students · Instructors Special Features: · A new edition of the book that has been the market leader for 30 years! · Problem-solving tactics are provided to help the reader solve problems and avoid common errors· This new edition features several thousand end of chapter problems that were rewritten to streamline both the presentations and answers· Chapter Puzzlers open each chapter with an intriguing application or question that is explained or answered in the chapter About The Book: In a breezy, easy-to-understand style this book offers a solid understanding of fundamental physics concepts, and helps readers apply this conceptual understanding to quantitative problem solving. It offers a unique combination of authoritative content and stimulating applications.
This third edition of the famous introductory physics text has been thoroughly revised and updated. The new edition contains two entirely new chapters: ''Relativity'' as the concluding chapter of the regular version, and ''Particles and the Cosmos'' as the concluding chapter of the extended version. New also are 16 essays, distributed throughout the text, on applications of physics to ''real world'' topics of student interest. Each essay is self-contained and is written by an expert in the topic. The body of the text contains more help in problem-solving and the chapter sections are shorter, making the material more accessible. There are more photos and diagrams than before, including attention-getting chapter-head photos and captions. The number of worked examples has been increased, as has the number of questions, exercises, and problems. In addition, a thread of ideas from relativistic and quantum physics is weaved through the earlier chapters, preparing the way for the later chapters.
This popular book incorporates modern approaches to physics. It not only tells readers how physics works, it shows them. Applications have been enhanced to form a bridge between concepts and reasoning.
Intended for Calculus-based Physics courses, the Sixth Edition of this text is a major redesign of the Fifth Edition, which still maintains many of the elements that led to its enormous success. Jearl Walker adds his unique style to this edition with the addition of new problems designed to capture, and keep, students' attention. Nearly all changes are based on suggestions from instructors and students using the Fifth Edition, from reviewer comments, and from research done on the process of learning. The primary goal of this text is to provide students with a solid understanding of fundamental physics concepts, and to help them apply this conceptual understanding to quantitative problem solving.
Access to WileyPLUS is not included with this textbook. The 10th edition of Halliday, Resnick and Walker's Fundamentals of Physics provides the perfect solution for teaching a 2 or 3 semester calc-based physics course, providing instructors with a tool by which they can teach students how to effectively read scientific material, identify fundamental concepts, reason through scientific questions, and solve quantitative problems. The 10th edition builds upon previous editions by offering new features designed to better engage students and support critical thinking. These include NEW Video Illustrations that bring the subject matter to life, NEW Vector Drawing Questions that test students' conceptual understanding, and additional multimedia resources (videos and animations) that provide an alternative pathway through the material for those who struggle with reading scientific exposition.
The primary goal of this text is to provide students with a solid understanding of fundamental physics concepts, and to help them apply this conceptual understanding to quantitative problem solving.
No other book on the market today can match the success of Halliday, Resnick and Walker's Fundamentals of Physics! In a breezy, easy-to-understand style the book offers a solid understanding of fundamental physics concepts, and helps readers apply this conceptual understanding to quantitative problem solving. The extended edition provides coverage of developments in Physics in the last 100 years, including: Einstein and Relativity, Bohr and others and Quantum Theory, and the more recent theoretical developments like String Theory. This book offers a unique combination of authoritative content and stimulating applications.
