Jason H. Hafner earned his Ph.D. from Rice University in 1998 under Richard Smalley for work on carbon nanotubes, and pursued postdoctoral studies at Harvard University with Charles Lieber. He returned to Rice in 2001 to join the faculty where his lab studies nanophotonics and interfacial biology. Hafner is currently an Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy and of Chemistry at Rice, as well as an Associate Editor of ACS Nano. He won the Hackerman Award for Chemical Research from the Welch Foundation in 2011. He has taught freshman and sophomore physics at Rice for the past seven years, and is on a quest to find a lecture demonstration that will get him fired.

Physics! serves as a supplement to the textbook for your introductory college physics course. While standard textbooks contain lots of details and problems, this book focuses on plainspoken descriptions of concepts and problem solving techniques. Also included are video solutions to some problems and a few demonstrations.
NOTE: This physics textbook was originally written as an iBook for the iPad, and includes embedded video explanations and demonstrations. Since most e-book readers don't support video, I published this version with links to the videos on YouTube. This version is meant to be read on a computer or tablet with internet access and e-book software such as Kindle for PC: http://www.amazon.com/gp/kindle/pc. However, if you want to read it on the beach with your reader, I won't stop you!
