9780131101692: Applied Physics

Applied Physics, 8/e, formerly titled Physics for Career Education, provides comprehensive and practical coverage of physics concepts for students in technical or industrial career programs. The new title reflects changes in this new edition that make the text an appropriate choice for an applied general education physics course as well as for a traditional technical physics course. The authors make challenging and difficult concepts easier to understand by applying physics concepts in everyday applications, with which the students are already familiar, as well as in technical applications. Concepts are explained and reinforced with numerous detailed examples, photos and illustrations, and more than 3200 problems and questions. To allow for customized programs of study, chapters have been written with flexibility of topic presentation in mind.

From the Back Cover:

This highly successful introduction to basic physics provides a solid foundation applied to industrial and technical fields and incorporates:

  • real-world applications to motivate students
  • clear, to-the-point topic coverage
  • extensive drawings, diagrams, photographs, and examples to make the physics real
  • large problem sets at the end of each section to provide for student practice

Superb organization divides content into five logical units:

  • mechanics
  • matter and heat
  • wave motion and sound
  • electricity and magnetism
  • light and modern physics

A special feature of this text is a unique, successful, and consistently used problem-solving method that provides an orderly approach for students.

  • The regular use of a special problem-solving method trains students to make a sketch, identify the data elements, select the appropriate equation, solve for the unknown quantity, and substitute the data in the working equation. An icon that outlines the method is placed in the margin of most problem sets as a reminder to students.
Pedagogical Highlights:
  • chapter introductions
  • chapter objectives
  • important laws, principles, and formulas are highlighted
  • numerous examples, consistently displayed in the special problem-solving format
  • ample problems are provided at the end of each section
  • new four-color format effectively illustrates important principles
  • 3500 problems and questions
  • answers to odd-numbered problems
  • answers to chapter review questions and problems
  • short biographical sketches of important scientists
  • chapter glossaries and a comprehensive glossary in Appendix D
  • Try This Activity provides students with suggestions to experiment with physics concepts.
  • Physics Connections are small sections that connect physics to real life.
  • Applied Physics are application-based problems that foster critical thinking.
  • new chapters on Universal Gravitational and Satellite Motion, Color, and Special and General Relativity

A companion Laboratory Manual contains laboratory exercises that reinforce and illustrate the physics principles.
