New To This Edition

  • Entire book edited to clarify conceptual development in light of recent findings of physics education research.
  • Following the inspiration of Arnold Arons, the Mechanics sequence is re-organized so that energy is the capstone topic.
  • End-of-chapter problem sets are thoroughly over-hauled - new problems are added, out-dated references are deleted, and new short-answer conceptual questions are added.
  • The presentation of Thermodynamics and Quantum Mechanics has been revised to provide a more modern approach to these topics.
  • The supplement package for both students and instructors have been greatly expanded. For students there are a Student Study Guide, Student Solutions Manual, and Student Website. For instructors there are a Instructor's Solutions Manual (both print and electronic), Test Bank, Computerized Testbank, Tranparencies, and IRCD with Simulations. EGrade is also avaible as a testing option.
