COLLEGE PHYSICS: REASONING AND RELATIONSHIPS motivates student understanding by emphasizing the relationship between major physics principles, and how to apply the reasoning of physics to real-world examples. Such examples come naturally from the life sciences, and this text ensures that students develop a strong understanding of how the concepts relate to each other and to the real world. COLLEGE PHYSICS: REASONING AND RELATIONSHIPS motivates student learning with its use of these original applications drawn from the life sciences and familiar everyday scenarios, and prepares students for the rigors of the course with a consistent five-step problem-solving approach. Available with this Second Edition, the new Enhanced WebAssign program features ALL the quantitative end-of-chapter problems and a rich collection of Reasoning and Relationships tutorials, personally adapted for WebAssign by Nick Giordano. This provides exceptional continuity for your students whether they choose to study with the printed text or by completing online homework.

This text blends traditional introductory physics topics with an emphasis on human applications and an expanded coverage of modern physics topics such as existence of atoms and the conversion of mass into energy.
Cracking the AP Physics 2 Exam, 2020 Edition, provides students with a comprehensive review of all the algebra-based topics covered on the AP Physics 2 Exam. This title includes content coverage of topics on the exam, such as thermodynamics, electrostatics, DC and RC circuits, magnetism and electromagnetic induction, optics, and more. It also includes step-by-step strategies for cracking even the toughest problems and 2 full-length practice tests.
While physics can seem challenging, its true quality is the sheer simplicity of fundamental physical theories--theories and concepts that can enrich your view of the world around you. COLLEGE PHYSICS, Ninth Edition, provides a clear strategy for connecting those theories to a consistent problem-solving approach, carefully reinforcing this methodology throughout the text and connecting it to real-world examples. For students planning to take the MCAT exam, the text includes exclusive test prep and review tools to help you prepare.

This text is intended for one-year introductory courses requiring algebra and some trigonometry, but no calculus. College Physics is organized such that topics are introduced conceptually with a steady progression to precise definitions and analytical applications. The analytical aspect (problem solving) is tied back to the conceptual before moving on to another topic. Each introductory chapter, for example, opens with an engaging photograph relevant to the subject of the chapter and interesting applications that are easy for most students to visualize. For manageability the original text is available in three volumes . Original text published by Openstax College (Rice University) www.textbookequity.org
"University Physics is a three-volume collection that meets the scope and sequence requirements for two- and three-semester calculus-based physics courses. Volume 1 covers mechanics, sound, oscillations, and waves. This textbook emphasizes connections between theory and application, making physics concepts interesting and accessible to students while maintaining the mathematical rigor inherent in the subject. Frequent, strong examples focus on how to approach a problem, how to work with the equations, and how to check and generalize the result."--Open Textbook Library.
The College Physics for AP(R) Courses text is designed to engage students in their exploration of physics and help them apply these concepts to the Advanced Placement(R) test. This book is Learning List-approved for AP(R) Physics courses. The text and images in this book are grayscale.
This brand-new book provides in-depth review for the Physics 2 exam, which corresponds to a second-year, algebra-based physics class. Subject matter covers electric, magnetic, and gravitational fields; circuits and capacitance; fluid dynamics; thermodynamics; optics; and modern physics. Barron's AP Physics 2 offers in-depth review for the exam and includes: Two practice tests that reflect the AP Physics 2 exam A diagnostic test that helps students target areas where they need more study Practice questions and review that cover all test areas Tips and advice for dealing with the new problem types introduced on this test BONUS ONLINE PRACTICE TESTS: Students who purchase this book will also get FREE access to two additional full-length online AP Physics 2 tests with all questions answered and explained. The online exams can be easily accessed by computer, tablet, and smartphone.
This is volume II of "Calculus-Based Physics" by Jeffrey Schnick. It covers another 37 chapters, from Charge & Coulomb's Law to Maxwell's Equations. For volume I see: https: //www.createspace.com/4525803 This textbook (along with vol I) has been peer review and received 4.9 out of a maximum score of five. Reviewer's Comments This is a basic text covering the essential topics in a coversational, engaging style. I would recommend this book to be used for the first semester of a first-year physics course. While this is best suited for students who are taking calculus concurrently, basic ideas in calculus are also covered for the students who have less mathematical background.

This new edition of College Physics Essentials provides a streamlined update of a major textbook for algebra-based physics. The first volume covers topics such as mechanics, heat, and thermodynamics. The second volume covers electricity, atomic, nuclear, and quantum physics. The authors provide emphasis on worked examples together with expanded problem sets that build from conceptual understanding to numerical solutions and real-world applications to increase reader engagement. A companion website with follow-up exercises and answers will also aid students to gain more practice on basic concepts and problems. Including over 900 images throughout the two volumes, this textbook is highly recommended for students seeking a basic understanding of key physics concepts and how to apply them to real-world problems.
