Description of Physics for Scientists and Engineers 2nd Edition

Physics for Scientists and Engineers 2nd Edition by R. Hawkes, J. Iqbal, F. Mansour, M. Milner-Bolotin & P. Williams is a great book for study. Physics is an exciting field that has changed our understanding of the world we live in and has immense implications for our everyday lives. We believe physics should be seen as the creative process that it is, and we aim to help the reader feel their own thrill of discovery.

To that end, Physics for Scientist and Engineers: An Interactive Approach, Second Edition, has taken a unique student-first development model. Fundamental topics are developed gradually, with great attention to the logical transition from the simple to the complex, and from the intuitive to the mathematical, all while highlighting the interdisciplinary nature of physics. This inquisitive and inspirational science is further supported with current events in Canada and beyond, and innovative pedagogy based on Physics Education Research (PER) such as Interactive Activities, Checkpoints, unique problem-solving strategies via open-ended problems, and ending Examples with “Making sense of the results.”

The vision for this text was to develop it from the student perspective, providing the background, logical development of concepts, and sufficient rigour and challenge necessary to help students excel. It provides a significant array of engaging examples and original problems with varying levels of complexity.
