No other book on the market today can match the 30-year success of Halliday, Resnick and Walker's "Fundamentals of Physics"! "Fundamentals of Physics, 7th Edition" and the "Extended Version, 7th Edition" offer a solid understanding of fundamental physics concepts, helping readers apply this conceptual understanding to quantitative problem solving, in a breezy, easy-to-understand style. It offers a unique combination of authoritative content and stimulating applications. There are numerous improvements in the text, based on feedback from the many users of the sixth edition (both instructors and students). Several thousand end-of-chapter problems have been rewritten to streamline both the presentations and answers. 'Chapter Puzzlers' open each chapter with an intriguing application or question that is explained or answered in the chapter. Problem-solving tactics are provided to help beginning Physics students solve problems and avoid common error. The first section in every chapter introduces the subject of the chapter by asking and answering, "What is Physics?" as the question pertains to the chapter. There are numerous supplements available to aid teachers and students. The extended edition provides coverage of developments in Physics in the last 100 years, including: Einstein and Relativity, Bohr and others and Quantum Theory, and the more recent theoretical developments like String Theory.
Good. Item may show signs of shelf wear. Pages may include limited notes and highlighting. Includes supplemental or companion materials if applicable. Access codes may or may not work. Connecting readers since 1972. Customer service is our top priority.
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.
