Physics – James S. Walker – 2nd Edition


Like having a private coach at their elbows, this introduction to -based physics involves readers actively in a guided learn-by-doing process—sensing when they need a very patient exposition and when they need only minimal reinforcement, when they need to focus on concepts and when they need an opportunity to practice their quantitative skills.

At the heart of the volume are worked examples in a unique, two-column format that focuses on the basic strategies and step-by-step thought involved in —with an emphasis on the relationship between the concepts and their mathematical expression. Color-coded drawings help readers visualize physics , and companion photographs show the same principle at work in different physical contexts, or juxtapose situations in which contrasting principles are at work. Real-world physics applications abound. Covers the full spectrum of topics in , Physics, Electromagnetism, Light and Optics, and Modern Physics. For anyone needing an introduction to, or refresher of, algebra-based physics.
