This third edition of the famous introductory physics text has been thoroughly revised and updated. The new edition contains two entirely new chapters: Relativity'' as the concluding chapter of the regular version, and Particles and the Cosmos'' as the concluding chapter of the extended version. New also are 16 "essays," distributed throughout the text, on applications of physics to real world'' topics of student interest. Each essay is self-contained and is written by an expert in the topic. The body of the text contains more help in problem-solving and the chapter sections are shorter, making the material more accessible. There are more photos and diagrams than before, including attention-getting chapter-head photos and captions. The number of worked examples has been increased, as has the number of questions, exercises, and problems. In addition, a thread of ideas from relativistic and quantum physics is weaved through the earlier chapters, preparing the way for the later chapters.

Acceptable. A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact (However the dust cover may be missing). Pages can include considerable notes--in pen or highlighter--but the notes cannot obscure the text. Book may be a price cutter or have a remainder mark.
The book is strictly black and white. The paper is a bit thin, but the text and illustrations are clear, except of course, where color illustrations contained color text. Aside from this, a very good value for the price for those who gave up their hardbound copies after graduation.
