Fundamentals Of Physics – Halliday, Resnick – 5th Edition


The first edition of for students of and engineering appeared in 1960; This new edition, the fifth, is available in separate volumes: Volume 1 (chapters 1 through 26) covers kinematics, mechanics and , and volume 2 (chapters 27-48) covers and .

In this edition we have an version of volume 2 (chapters 27 to 56) with eight additional chapters that present an introduction to and some of its applications.
