About this book

The sixth edition offers a completely integrated text and media solution that will enable students to learn more effectively and professors to teach more efficiently. The text includes a new strategic problem-solving approach, an integrated Maths Tutorial, and new tools to improve conceptual understanding. It is available in these versions: "Volume 1 Mechanics/Oscillations and Waves/Thermodynamics" (Chapters 1-20), "Volume 2 Electricity and Magnetism/Light" (Chapters 21-33), "Volume 3 Elementary Modern Physics" (Chapters 34-41), "Standard Version" (Chapters 1-33), and "Extended Version" (Chapters 1-41).


Volume 1 Systems of measurement - Part 1 Mechanics: motion in one dimension; motion in two and three dimensions; Newton's Laws; applications of Newton's Laws; work and energy; conservation of energy; systems of particles and conservation of momentum; gravity; static equilibrium and elasticity; fluids. Part 2 Oscillations, waves and quantum physics: oscillations, wave motion, superposition and standing waves; wave-particle duality and quantum physics. Part 3 Thermodynamics: temperature and the kinetic theory of gases; heat and the first law; the second law; thermal properties and processes. Volume 2 Part 4 Electricity and magnetism: the electric field -discrete charge distributions; the electric field II - continuous charge distributions; electric potential; electrostatic energy and capacitance; electric current and DC circuits; microscopic theory of electrical conduction; the magnetic field; sources of the magnetic field; magnetic induction; AC circuits; Maxwell's equations and electromagnetic waves. Part 5 Optics: properties of light; optical images; interference and diffraction. Volume 3 Part 6 Modern physics: applications of the Schrodinger equation; atoms; molecules and solids; relativity; nuclear physics; elementary particles and the evolution of the Universe.
