Overview

In Hecht's groundbreaking book, you'll find real-life applications, and unparalleled art and photography program, a presentation that anticipates students' questions, and an approach that emphasizes contemporary physics while interweaving historical perspectives.
Hecht's coverage of classical physics is exceptionally clear and insightful. He shows students how 20th-century physics illuminates the classical topics of each chapter, adding excitement to the subject matter.
Approximately 1,300 illustrations make it possible for students to visualize a diversity of physical phenomena. Many of these are multi-frame, sequential drawings allowing students to comprehend the temporal unfolding of complex events. A selection of sketch art teaches students how to create problem-solving diagrams.
