For the calculus-based General Physics course primarily taken by engineers and science majors (including physics majors).
This long-awaited and extensive revision maintains Giancoli's reputation for creating carefully crafted, highly accurate and precise physics texts. Physics for Scientists and Engineers combines outstanding pedagogy with a clear and direct narrative and applications that draw the student into the physics. The new edition also features an unrivaled suite of media and on-line resources that enhance the understanding of physics.
Strong Problem Solving Guidance
Developing the ability to solve a variety of problems is crucial in the calculus-based physics course. The Third Edition addresses this need in several ways. Here are a few:
Physics is a difficult subject that can be made more accessible through the use of pedagogical tools. The new edition features an abundance of these including:
Stunning New Art Program
In physics, the ability to create sketches and diagrams is a critical problem-solving skill. Many students are also visual learners, and clear, instructive photographs and illustrations are necessary to aid understanding of the physics.
Clear and Direct Narrative
Clarity is crucial for student understanding. The narrative is clear and direct, and numerous topics have been reorganized or rewritten for maximum clarity.
Relevant and Engaging Applications
The calculus-based physics course serves a wide variety of students from different fields. Giancoli makes physics more engaging to students by applying it to their everyday activities and interests. Applications in engineering, related scientific fields, and everyday life are expertly woven into the narrative, as well as provided in the Examples, Questions and Problems.
