Principles of physics; a calculus-based text, 4th ed.

Serway, Raymond A. and John W. Jewett.

Brooks/Cole Publishing, [c]2006

1088 p.


Designed for students in engineering, science, and pre-med, and using a contextual approach that shows how physics are part of everyday life, the 4th edition of this textbook features a Web-based learning system that's integrated with the text throughout. The text also incorporates a structured process using a modeling approach for problem solving. The Web-based material includes a number of animated scenes to illustrate phenomena and 67 interactive worked examples. Each chapter concludes with a summary followed by a series of quizzes and questions (some answers are included in an appendix). Appendices contain tables, a mathematics review, the periodic table of elements, SI units, a Nobel prize winners. Serway is emeritus at James Madison U.; Jewett teaches at the California State Poytechnic U. in Pomona.
