Designed for medical professionals who may struggle with making the leap to conceptual understanding and applying physics, the eighth edition continues to build transferable problem-solving skills. It includes a set of features such as Analyzing-Multiple-Concept Problems, Check Your Understanding, Concepts & Calculations, and Concepts at a Glance. This helps the reader to first identify the physics concepts, then associate the appropriate mathematical equations, and finally to work out an algebraic solution.
Designed for students and teachers who are partners in a one-year course in physics that uses algebra and trigonometry, this text is intended to help students develop conceptual understanding and use it in solving problems. Subject areas include mech anics, thermal physics, wave motion, electricity and magnetism, light and optics, and such modern fields as special relativity and nuclear physics. A CD-ROM contains interactive problem-solving software and numerous simulations of physical phenomena. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
New edition of a two-volume text that helps students develop a conceptual understanding of physics principles. Cutnell and Johnson (Southern Illinois U. at Carbondale) present 32 chapters that cover mechanics, thermal physics, wave motion, electricity and magnetism, light and optics, and modern physics. In the margins, they highlight direct applications of physics principles, problem solving insights, concepts at a glance, and illustrative figures and color photographs. Each volume has a separate ISBN. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
