Description of Physics for Scientists and Engineers

In this Physics for Scientists and Engineers book, we continue our ongoing efforts to improve the clarity of presentation and include new pedagogical features that help support the learning and teaching processes. Drawing on positive feedback from users of previous Edition data gathered from both professors and students who use Enhanced WebAssign, as well as reviewers’ suggestions, we have refined the text to better meet the needs of students and teachers.

This Physics for Scientists and Engineers with Modern Physics textbook is intended for a course in introductory physics for students majoring in science or engineering. The entire contents of the book in its extended version could be covered in a three-book in its extended version that could be covered in a three-semester course, but it is possible to use shorter sequences with the omission of selected chapters and sections of this Physics for Scientists and Engineers with Modern Physics. The student mathematical background taking this course should ideally include one semester of calculus. If that is not possible, the student should be enrolled in a concurrent course in introductory calculus.
