Instructor Solutions Manual (Download only) for University Physics, 13th Edition
Young, Freedman & Ford
University Physics with Modern Physics, Thirteenth Edition continues to set the benchmark for clarity and rigor combined with effective teaching and research-based innovation.
University Physics is known for its uniquely broad, deep, and thoughtful set of worked examples–key tools for developing both physical understanding and problem-solving skills. The Thirteenth Edition revises all the Examples and Problem-Solving Strategies to be more concise and direct while maintaining the Twelfth Edition's consistent, structured approach and strong focus on modeling as well as math. To help students tackle challenging as well as routine problems, the Thirteenth Edition adds Bridging Problems to each chapter, which pose a difficult, multiconcept problem and provide a skeleton solution guide in the form of questions and hints.
The text's rich problem sets–developed and refined over six decades–are upgraded to include larger numbers of problems that are biomedically oriented or require calculus. The problem-set revision is driven by detailed student-performance data gathered nationally through MasteringPhysics®, making it possible to fine-tune the reliability, effectiveness, and difficulty of individual problems.
Complementing the clear and accessible text, the figures use a simple graphic style that focuses on the physics. They also incorporate explanatory annotations–a technique demonstrated to enhance learning.
This text is available with MasteringPhysics–the most widely used, educationally proven, and technically advanced tutorial and homework system in the world.
- Deep and extensive problem sets cover a wide range of difficulty and exercise both physical understanding and problem-solving expertise. Many problems are based on complex real-life situations.
- This text offers a larger number of Examples and Conceptual Examples than any other leading calculus-based text, allowing it to explore problem-solving challenges not addressed in other texts.
- A research-based problem-solving approach (Identify, Set Up, Execute, Evaluate) is used not just in every Example but also in the Problem-Solving Strategies and throughout the Student and Instructor Solutions Manuals and the Study Guide. This consistent approach teaches students to tackle problems thoughtfully rather than cutting straight to the math.
- Problem-Solving Strategies coach students in how to approach specific types of problems.
- The Figures use a simplified graphical style to focus on the physics of a situation, and they incorporate explanatory annotation. Both techniques have been demonstrated to have a strong positive effect on learning.
- Figures that illustrate Example solutions often take the form of black-and-white pencil sketches, which directly represent what a student should draw in solving such a problem.
- The popular Caution paragraphs focus on typical misconceptions and student problem areas.
- End-of-section Test Your Understanding questions let students check their grasp of the material and use a multiple-choice or ranking-task format to probe for common misconceptions.
- Visual Summaries at the end of each chapter present the key ideas in words, equations, and thumbnail pictures, helping students to review more effectively.
- Chapters begin with learning goals to help students focus their effort.
- MasteringPhysics is the most advanced, educationally effective, and widely used physics homework and tutorial system in the world. Eight years in development, it provides instructors with a library of extensively pre-tested end-of-chapter problems and rich, multipart, multistep tutorials that incorporate a wide variety of answer types, wrong-answer feedback, individualized help (comprising hints or simpler sub-problems upon request), all driven by the largest metadatabase of student problem-solving in the world. NSF-sponsored published research (and subsequent studies) show that MasteringPhysics has dramatic educational results. MasteringPhysics allows instructors to build wide-ranging homework assignments of just the right difficulty and length and provides them with efficient tools to analyze both class trends, and the work of any student in unprecedented detail.
New to This Edition
- Included in each chapter, Bridging Problems provide a transition between the single-concept Examples and the more challenging end-of-chapter problems. Each Bridging Problem poses a difficult, multiconcept problem, which often incorporates physics from earlier chapters. In place of a full solution, it provides a skeleton Solution Guide consisting of questions and hints, which helps train students to approach and solve challenging problems with confidence.
- All Examples, Conceptual Examples, and Problem-Solving Strategies are revised to enhance conciseness and clarity for today's students.
- The core Modern Physics chapters (Chapters 38-41) are revised extensively to provide a more idea-centered, less historical approach to the material. Chapters 42-44 are also revised significantly.
- The fluid mechanics chapter now precedes the chapters on gravitation and periodic motion, so that the latter immediately precedes the chapter on mechanical waves.
- Additional bioscience applications appear throughout the text, mostly in the form of marginal photos with explanatory captions, to help students see how physics is connected to many breakthroughs and discoveries in the biosciences.
- The text has been streamlined for tighter and more focused language.
- Changes to the End of Chapter content include the following:
- 15%-20% of problems are new.
- The number and level of calculus-requiring problems has been increased.
- Most chapters include five to seven biosciences-related problems.
- The number of cumulative problems (those incorporating physics from earlier chapters) has been increased.
- Over 70 PhET simulations are linked to the Pearson eText and provided in the Study Area of the MasteringPhysics website (with icons in the print text). These powerful simulations allow students to interact productively with the physics concepts they are learning. PhET clicker questions will be included on the IR-DVD.
- Video Tutors bring key content to life throughout the text:
- Approximately 20 Video Tutors feature "pause-and-predict" demonstrations of key physics concepts and incorporate assessment as the student progresses to actively engage them in understanding the key conceptual ideas underlying the physics principles.
- EVERY Worked Example in the book is accompanied by a Video Tutor that walks students through the problem-solving process, providing a virtual teaching assistant on a round the clock basis.
- All of these Video Tutors play directly through links within the Pearson eText. Many also appear in the Study Area within MasteringPhysics®.
- Assignable MasteringPhysics® tutorials are based on the Pause and Predict Video Tutors and PhET simulations.
- Pause and Predict Video Tutors will be expanded to tutorials in Mastering by requiring the student to transfer their understanding to a new problem situation so that these will be gradable and distinct from the Pause and Predict Video Tutors alone.
- Sixteen new PhET tutorials enable students to not only explore the PhET simulations but also answer questions, helping them make connections between real life phenomena and the underlying physics that explain such phenomena.

About the Author(s)
Hugh D. Young is Emeritus Professor of Physics at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. He attended Carnegie Mellon for both undergraduate and graduate study and earned his Ph.D. in fundamental particle theory under the direction of the late Richard Cutkosky. He joined the faculty of Carnegie Mellon in 1956 and has also spent two years as a Visiting Professor at the University of California at Berkeley.
Professor Young’s career has centered entirely on undergraduate education. He has written several undergraduate-level textbooks, and in 1973 he became a co-author with Francis Sears and Mark Zemansky for their well-known introductory texts. With their deaths, he assumed full responsibility for new editions of these books until joined by Prof. Freedman for University Physics.
Professor Young is an enthusiastic skier, climber, and hiker. He also served for several years as Associate Organist at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Pittsburgh, and has played numerous organ recitals in the Pittsburgh area. Prof. Young and his wife Alice usually travel extensively in the summer, especially in Europe and in the desert canyon country of southern Utah.
Roger A. Freedman is a Lecturer in Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Dr. Freedman was an undergraduate at the University of California campuses in San Diego and Los Angeles, and did his doctoral research in nuclear theory at Stanford University under the direction of Professor J. Dirk Walecka. He came to UCSB in 1981 after three years teaching and doing research at the University of Washington.
At UCSB, Dr. Freedman has taught in both the Department of Physics and the College of Creative Studies, a branch of the university intended for highly gifted and motivated undergraduates. He has published research in nuclear physics, elementary particle physics, and laser physics. In recent years, he has helped to develop computer-based tools for learning introductory physics and astronomy. When not in the classroom or slaving over a computer, Dr. Freedman can be found either flying (he holds a commercial pilot’s license) or driving with his wife, Caroline, in their 1960 Nash Metropolitan convertible.
A. Lewis Ford is Professor of Physics at Texas A&M University. He received a B.A. from Rice University in 1968 and a Ph.D. in chemical physics from the University of Texas at Austin in 1972. After a one-year postdoc at Harvard University, he joined the Texas A&M physics faculty in 1973 and has been there ever since. Professor Ford’s research area is theoretical atomic physics, with a specialization in atomic collisions. At Texas A&M he has taught a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses, but primarily introductory physics.
