Physics for Scientists and Engineers – Randall Knight – 2nd Edition

As the most widely adopted new physics text in more than 50 years, Knight’s Physics for Scientists and Engineers was published to widespread critical acclaim from professors and students.0

In this Edition, Knight builds on the research-proven instructional techniques he introduced in the first and second editions, as well as national of student performance, to take student even further. Knight’s unparalleled insight into student difficulties, and his impeccably skillful crafting of text and figures at every level — from macro to micro — to address these difficulties, results in a uniquely effective and accessible book, leading you to a deeper and better-connected understanding of the and more proficient problem-solving skills.

The second edition comes with the latest edition of MasteringPhysics™—the most , educationally effective (as shown by gains in student exams scores and independent tests), and widely used online physics tutorial and homework system in the world. It provides the largest library of research-based tutorials and textbook available, and automatic grading of activities as wide-ranging as numerical with randomized values and algebraic answers to free-hand drawn graphs and free-body diagrams.
