Modern Physics for Scientists and Engineers – S. Thornton, A. Rex – 3rd Edition

Learn about the latest discoveries in physics with . This book offers a contemporary and comprehensive to physics with a strong emphasis on applications to help you see in the book relate to the real world. Discussions on the experiments that led to certain key discoveries illustrate the process behind scientific advances and give you a historical perspective. The book also provides a solid foundation in quantum theory to help you understand more advanced physics .

Is it a physics text or a history text? This book is all over the place. There’s a lot of storytelling about the history of modern physics and then, almost as if by accident, there will be some actual physics. It doesn’t do very well at explaining either, making this a very frustrating textbook to try to read.
