Appropriate for any introductory calculus-based physics course.Fishbane/Gasiorowicz/Thornton is a comprehensive introduction to calculus-based physics. The most successful first-edition physics text of the last decade, it is the only book written specifically to address the main issue in this course-namely, balancing the needs and wants of the students with those of the instructor. The authors, experienced researchers and teachers, represent both theoretical and experimental physicists. This text presents balance between theory and applications, between concepts and problem-solving, between mathematics and physics, and finally, between technology and traditional pedagogical methods. Appropriate for both scientists and engineers with increased applications for engineering students.

Appropriate for both scientists and engineers. A comprehensive introduction to calculus-based physics which presents balance between theory and applications, between concepts and problem-solving, between mathematics and physics, and finally, between technology and traditional pedagogical methods. Maintains theoretical coverage, but supplements it with applications boxes, on topics such as: timed traffic lights, jet engines, simple machines, drag racing, flight navigator, cranes, quartz watches, smoke detectors, capacitors as power sources for laptop computers, television antennas, and fiber optics. Places emphasis on concepts, showing the motivation for the physics. This conceptual emphasis has been maintained, but supporting problem-solving apparatus has been dramatically revised. All mathematics in the book is self-contained, and major mathematical tools are introduced as needed. Vectors, a topic that requires a lot of practice, are covered in depth.
