Electricity and Magnetism – Raymond A. Serway – 6th Edition


This best-selling, calculus-based text is recognized for its carefully crafted, logical presentation of the basic concepts and principles of physics. PHYSICS FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS, Sixth Edition, maintains the Serway traditions of concise writing for the students, carefully thought-out problem sets and worked examples, and evolving educational pedagogy.

This edition introduces a new co-author, Dr. John Jewett, at Cal Poly – Pomona, known best for his teaching awards and his role in the recently published PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS, Third Edition, also written with Ray Serway. Providing students with the tools they need to succeed in introductory physics, the Sixth Edition of this authoritative text features unparalleled media integration and a newly enhanced supplemental package for instructors and students!

As in previous editions, this book is made up of the first 12 chapters of Volume II of Physics for Science and Engineering of Serway & Jewett. Thus, the course of Electricity and magnetism is covered in the schools of engineering and sciences in which the subjects of physics are imparted separately.
