Key Benefit:

Elegant, engaging, exacting, and concise, Giancoli’s Physics: Principles with Applications, Seventh Edition, helps readers view the world through eyes that know physics.


Giancoli’s book is a trusted classic, known for its elegant writing, clear presentation, and quality of content. Using concrete observations and experiences readers can relate to, the book features an approach that reflects how science is actually practiced: it starts with the specifics, then moves to the great generalizations and the more formal aspects of a topic to show readers why we believe what we believe.


Written with the goal of giving readers a thorough understanding of the basic concepts of physics in all its aspects, the book uses interesting applications to biology, medicine, architecture, and digital technology to show readers how useful physics is in their own everyday lives and in their future professions.

Key Topics:

Introduction, Measurement, Estimating, Describing Motion: Kinematics in One Dimension, Kinematics in Two Dimensions; ectors, Dynamics: Newton’s Laws of Motion, Circular Motion; Gravitation, Work and Energy, Linear Momentum, Rotational Motion, Static Equilibrium; Elasticity and Fracture, Fluids, Oscillations and Waves, Sound, Temperature and Kinetic heory, Heat, The Laws of Thermodynamics, Electric Charge and Electric Field, Electric Potential, Electric Currents, DC Circuits, Magnetism, Electromagnetic Induction and Farady’s Law, Electromagnetic Waves, Light: Geometric Optics, The Wave Nature of Light, Optical Instruments, The Special Theory of Relativity, Early Quantum Theory and Models of the Atom, Quantum Mechanics of Atoms, Molecules and Solids, Nuclear Physics and Radioactivity, Nuclear Energy; Effects and Uses of Radiation, Elementary Particles, Astrophysics and Cosmology

Market: Intended for those interested in gaining a basic knowledge of physics.
