Fundamentals of Physics Extended, Ninth Edition

Fundamentals of Physics Extended, Ninth Edition (EHEP001575) cover image
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.

  • New WileyPLUS features:

    • Graded Reading Comprehension Assignments. Instructors can assign – for credit – reading comprehension questions.  Because the assignment and grading of these questions is done automatically by WileyPLUS, no extra instructor or staff time is necessary.
    • Significantly expanded multi-media assets.   Additional interactive simulations, animations and video mini-lectures have been included to accommodate a variety of learning styles. Through the videos, Jearl teaches students how to read technical content.  Extra help material (not in the printed text) is available through hypertext links for those students who need or want it.  In addition, callouts throughout the text direct the student to additional resources in WileyPLUS.
  • Redesigned key illustrations. The author has re-designed a number of the key figures in the new edition to provide a more inviting and informative treatment to help beginning students get a better grasp of key concepts.  These figures are not overly complex and don’t assume an unrealistic level of sophistication on the students’ part.  The figures are broken into component parts with supporting commentary so that the students can more readily see the key ideas. In addition, animated versions of the figures with audio commentary are now included in the multimedia version of the text which is accessed through WileyPLUS.
  • MathHelp videos and a MathSkills Module

  • Integration of The Flying Circus of Physics. Material from The Flying Circus is incorporated into the chapter opener puzzlers, Sample Problems, text examples and end-of-chapter problems to make the subject more interesting and engaging and to show students that the world around them can be examined and understood using the fundamental principles of physics. Links to The Flying Circus material are identified throughout the text with a biplane icon.
  • Checkpoints offer stopping points so students can check their understanding of a question with some reasoning based on the narrative or sample problem they just read.
  • Sample problems are chosen to demonstrate how problems can be solved with reasoned solutions rather than quick and simplistic plugging of numbers into an equation with no regard for what the equation means. Key Ideas in the sample problems focus a student on the basic concepts at the root of the solution to a problem.
  • Additional help. When worked-out solutions are provided in print or electronically for certain problems, there is an icon listed to alert the student and instructor to where the solutions are located:
    • Guided-Online Tutorials (GO)- Tutoring problem available in WileyPLUS or WebAssign
    • Student Solutions Manual (SSM)
    • Worked-out Solution on the website (WWW)
    • Interactive LearningWare Solution on the website (ILW)
  •  WileyPLUS
    • All end of chapter problems are coded and available for assignment
    • Every problem has an associated hint that can be made available at the instructor’s discretion.
    • Additional problems not found in the book can be made available to the students at the instructor’s discretion.
    • Several problems per chapter are available in a tutorial format that provides step-by-step guidance (Guided Online tutorials).
    • Simulation problems that require student interaction are also available.
    •   Office Hours™ videos include:
         o Video Mini-lectures
         o Video Worked Examples by Jearl Walker
  • Just in time MathSkills review

Written by Sen-Ben Liao of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, this manual provides students with complete, worked-out solutions to 30% of the end-of-chapter problems. The solutions are written using the “TEAL” approach, which stands for “Think, Express, Analyze, and Learn”. This learning strategy was originally developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has proven to be an effective learning tool for students. These problems are indicated in the text with an SSM icon.
