Since defining this course 30 years ago, Paul Hewitt’s best-selling text continues to be the benchmark book that two-thirds of professors use and by which all others are judged. In the Tenth edition of Conceptual Physics, Paul Hewitt shows how a compelling text and the most advanced media can be integrated to empower professors to bring physics to life for non-science majors in and out of class.
Hewitt’s text is famous for engaging students with analogies and imagery from real-world situations that build a strong conceptual understanding of physical principles ranging from classical mechanics to modern physics. With this strong foundation, students are better equipped to understand the equations and formulas of physics, and motivated to explore the thought-provoking exercises and fun projects in each chapter. Icons in the text direct students to fun and effective interactive on-line activities on The Physics Place website.
This highly acclaimed website now features, by popular demand, three new interactive and animated tutorials (bringing the total to 20) that coach students through core topics, as well as video demonstrations, and hundreds of problems and activities to help students effectively review the material.
