Key Message:

Building on the research-proven instructional techniques introduced in Knight’s Physics for Scientists and Engineers, the most widely adopted new physics book in more than 30 years, College Physics: A Strategic Approach set a new standard for algebra-based introductory physics—gaining widespread critical acclaim from professors and readers alike.

 

For the Second Edition, Randy Knight, Brian Jones, and Stuart Field continue to apply the best results from educational research, and refine and tailor them for this course and the particular needs of its readers.New pedagogical features (Chapter Previews, Integrated Examples, and Part Summary problems) and fine-tuned and streamlined content take the hallmarks of the First Edition—exceptionally effective conceptual explanation and problem-solving instruction—to a new level. More than any other book, College Physics leads readers to proficient and long-lasting problem-solving skills, a deeper and better-connected understanding of the concepts, and a broader picture of the relevance of physics to their chosen career and the world around them. 

 

College Physics, Second Edition, is accompanied by MasteringPhysics™ —the most advanced, educationally effective, and widely used online physics tutorial and homework system in the world. 

Key Topics:

Representing Motion, Motion in One Dimension, Vectors and Motion In Two Dimensions, Forces and Newton’s Laws of Motion, 

Applying Newton’s Laws, Circular Motion, Orbits, and Gravity, Rotational Motion,  Equilibrium and Elasticity, Momentum, Energy and Work, Using Energy, Thermal Properties of Matter, Fluids, Oscillations, Traveling Waves and Sound, Superposition and Standing Waves, Wave Optics, Ray Optics, Optical Instruments, Electric Forces and Fields, Electrical Potential, Current and Resistance, Circuits, Magnetic Fields and Forces,  Electromagnetic Induction and Electromagnetic Waves,  AC Circuits, Relativity, Quantum Physics,  Atoms and Molecules, Nuclear Physics     

Market: Intended for those interested in gaining a basic knowledge of college physics
