Overview

University Physics with Modern Physics helps you learn how to see patterns, make connections between problems, and build confidence for tackling different problem types. You'll learn to recognize when to use similar steps in solving the same problem type and develop an understanding for problem solving approaches, rather than simply plugging in an equation.

The 15th Edition addresses the tendency to focus on the objects, situations, numbers, and questions posed in a problem, rather than recognizing the underlying principle or the problem's type. New Key Concept statements at the end of worked examples address this challenge by identifying the main idea used in the solution to help you recognize the underlying concepts and strategy for the given problem.

Make the most of your study time with offline access, enhanced search, notes and flashcards — to get organized, get the work done quicker and get results.

A Pearson eTextbook is an easy-to-use digital version of the book. You can add notes and highlights, plus learn on the go with the Pearson+ mobile app. Listen on the go with the audiobook feature, available for most titles.

When you choose a plan, you're signing up for a 4-month 'term'. You can opt to make a one-time payment for the initial 4-month term or pay monthly. If you opt for monthly payments, we will charge your payment method each month until your 4-month term has ended. You can turn on auto-renew in My account at any time to continue your subscription before your 4-month term has ended.

When you purchase a Pearson+ subscription, it will last 4 months. Before your initial 4-month term ends, you can extend your subscription by turning auto-renew on in My account.

If you turn auto-renew on, we’ll automatically renew your subscription and charge you every month until you turn off auto-renew. If you made a one-time payment for your initial 4-month term, you’ll now pay monthly.

To avoid the next payment charge, make sure you turn auto renewal off 1 day before the auto renewal date. You can subscribe again after auto-renew has been turned off by purchasing another Pearson+ subscription. We use your credit card to renew your subscription automatically. To make sure your learning is uninterrupted, please check your card details before your first monthly payment.

With a Multi Pearson+ subscription plan, you can download up to 10 titles from your library on each of your authorized smartphone and tablet devices every month.

When you’re using your Multi Pearson+ subscription plan in a browser, you can select and read from as many titles as you like.
