Fundamentals of Physics Extended, 10th Edition
August 2013, ©2014
The 10th edition of Halliday’s Fundamentals of Physics building upon previous issues by offering several new features and additions. Examples include a new print component will revised to conform to the Version 5 design; chapter sections organized and numbered to match the Concept Modules; Learning Objectives have been added; illustrations changed to reflect (and advertise) multimedia versions available in WileyPLUS; and new problems provide a means of assigning the multimedia assets.
The new edition offers most accurate, extensive and varied set of assessment questions of any course management program in addition to all questions including some form of question assistance – including answer specific feedback – to facilitate success. The text also offers multimedia presentations (videos and animations) of much of the material that provide an alternative pathway through the material for those who struggle with reading scientific exposition. Furthermore, the book includes math review content in both a self-study module for more in-depth review and also in just-in-time math videos for a quick refresher on a specific topic.
The Halliday content is widely accepted as clear, correct, and complete. The end-of-chapters problems are without peer. The new design, which was introduced in 9e continues with 10e, making this new edition of Halliday the most accessible and reader-friendly book on the market.

- Rewritten chapters. Based on feedback from his students, Jearl Walker has rewritten material that students find particularly challenging (eg Gauss’ law and electric potential). Some other changes include expanded coverage of the Schrödinger equation including reflection of matter waves from a step potential and a decoupling of the discussion of the Bohr atom from the Schrödinger solution for the hydrogen atom.
- New Sample Problems and Homework Question and Problems. 16 new sample problems, 350 problems and 50 questions some of which come from prior editions back by popular demand.
- WileyPLUS is a research-based online environment for effective teaching and learning. WileyPLUS is packed with interactive study tools and resources–including the complete online textbook–to give your students more value for their money.
- WileyPLUS is now equipped with an adaptive learning module called ORION. Based on cognitive science, WileyPLUS with ORION, provides students with a personal, adaptive learning experience so they can build their proficiency on topics and use their study time most effectively. WileyPLUS with ORION helps students learn by learning about them.
- The Flying Circus of Physics, written by Jearl Walker, is incorporated into sample problems, text examples and end-of-chapter problems providing interesting real-world physics.
- Reading questions (available online) help test for reading comprehension
- Checkpoints offer stopping points so students can check their understanding of a question.
- Sample problems 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.
