Overview

Here is an introduction to physics for high school students, college-101 courses, or students looking for a self-teaching introduction to this sometimes intimidating science. The author makes physics easier to comprehend by using ordinary language to explain concepts. Mathematical techniques, limited to elementary algebra, are introduced and used throughout to provide the necessary rigor and to give students the tools they need to solve problems. Topics introduced include motion, forces, machines, energy, heat, wave motion, noise and music, electricity, magnetism, electromagnetic waves, the properties of light, and an introduction to nuclear physics. This new edition can be used by prospective medical school students to help them prepare for many questions that appear in the MCAT. Material in the text that applies to the MCAT as well as material specific to college-level introductory physics is marked with an asterisk. Also new in this edition is a chapter on electronics, and expansions and updates on many physics topics, including special relativity.

    I needed this

    I have never taken Physics before in my life. I am taking a college level course and unfortunately my professor doesnt speak very good english. I purchased this book because I felt I wasnt getting enough from the class. Although the concepts in the book are very simplistic, it has helped me tremendously!

    for beginners

    I bought this book as a supplement for Calculus based university physics and it isn't very helpful. It's probably better suited to high school level or algebra based physics courses. Also, the example problems are way to simple to help you with the problems from any college level text book. Wait to buy this book, check the text first and see if it is adequate. Of course we all wish someone would write a book called, physics for people with incredibly difficult professors!

    Too basic

    This book ONLY covers the basic concepts, leaving out the more specific and important ones that AP students need to grasp.
