"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This highly successful textbook presents clear, to-the-point topical coverage of basic physics applied to industrial and technical fields. A wealth of real-world applications are presented, motivating students by teaching physics concepts in context.
Unique Problem Solving Method
This textbook teaches students to use a proven effective problem-solving methodology.
The consistent use of this 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.
NEW TO THIS EDITION
A companion Laboratory Manual contains laboratory exercises that reinforce and illustrate the physics principles.
