This book emphasizes the conceptual unity of physics while providing a solid approach to help students build problem-solving skills. Scientifically sound, yet lauded by reviewers for clarity and accessibility, Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Third Edition, provides pedagogical support in recognition of the trouble spots often faced by students. An abundance of interesting and diverse end-of-chapter problems motivate and intrigue students. Other aids include references within examples to related problems found at the ends of chapters, Strategy boxes, extended summaries, paired problems, and cumulative problems to integrate concepts across several chapters. This new edition is correlated with the most comprehensive physics simulation package available, ActivPhysics (TM) 1 & 2.
