PP New York YR 2007 SN 9780393926316 0393926311 039317493X 9780393174939 AB Designed for the introductory, calculus-based physics course, Physics for Engineers and Scientists is distinguished by its lucid exposition and accessible coverage of fundamental physics concepts. The text presents a modern view of classical mechanics and electromagnetism for today's science and engineering students, including coverage of optics and quantum physics and emphasizing the relationship between macroscopic and microscopic phenomena. Organized to address specific concepts and then build on them, the text divides each chapter into short, focused sections followed by conceptual review questions. Using real-world examples throughout the text, the authors offer a glimpse of the practical applications of physics in science and engineering and develop a solid conceptual foundation that enables students to become better problem solvers. A well-integrated media package extends this emphasis on core concepts and problem-solving skills by offering students and instructors many diverse opportunities for active learning.--Publisher description.
