Matter and Interactions, 3rd Edition

January 2010, ©2010
Matter and Interactions, 3rd Edition (EHEP000335) cover image
Matter and Interactions offers a modern curriculum for introductory physics (calculus-based). It presents physics the way practicing physicists view their discipline and integrates 20th Century physics and computational physics. The text emphasizes the small number of fundamental principles that underlie the behavior of matter, and models that can explain and predict a wide variety of physical phenomena. Matter and Interactions will be available as a single volume hardcover text and also two paperback volumes.

  • Online Homework- Most of the end-of-chapter problems are available for assignment with the WebAssign on-line homework system.
  • Instructor Solutions Manual- The new edition is accompanied by a complete instructor solutions manual.
  • More exercises and problems at the end of each chapter including more numerical examples to  complement the symbolic ones.
  • Improvements in the treatments of computational modeling, angular momentum, the effect of electric fields on matter, and electromagnetic radiation.
  • New section on geometric optics in Chapter 24.
  • Improved Design- The production values have been upgraded to make the text more student-friendly.
  • Full Color- Helps clarify many diagrams and allows examples to stand out more clearly.

  • Modeling: The text places a major emphasis on constructing and using physical models .  A central aspect of science is the modeling of complex real-world phenomena.  A physical model is based on fundamental principles; its intent is to predict or explain the most important aspects of an actual situation.                    
  • Computer Modeling:  Computer modeling is now as important as theory and experiment in contemporary science and engineering.  Computer modeling is introduced right away to help build a strong foundation in the use of this important tool.
  • Experiments Using Simple Equipment: Some end-of-chapter problems involve experiments using simple equipment such as weights, string, coffee filters, scotch tape, etc.  By experimenting with very simple equipment, students can gain insight into rather deep scientific issues.
  • Active Learning: Stop and Think questions are interspersed throughout the reading to encourage students to engage the material more deeply.
  • Lab Activities- There is a complete set of lab activities that were written specifically for a Matter & Interactions-style course.
