University Physics has been revered for its emphasis on fundamental principles and how to apply them. Known for its clear and thorough narrative, as well as its uniquely broad, deep and thoughtful sets of
worked examples, University Physics provides students with key tools for developing both conceptual
understanding and problem-solving skills. This edition improves the defining features of the text while
adding new features, with a focus on visual learning, new problem types and pedagogy improvements
that are designed to create the best learning resource for physics students.
Features New and Enhanced Features
-More than 620 QR codes throughout the book allow students to use a mobile phone to watch an
interactive video of a physics instructor giving a relevant physics demonstration or a narrated and
animated worked example
-A research-based problem-solving approach Identify, Set Up, Execute, Evaluate used in every
example to teach students to tackle problems thoughtfully rather than cutting straight to the math
updated modern physics content includes sections on quantum measurement and quantum
entanglement, as well as recent data on the Higgs boson and cosmic background radiation
-Additional bioscience applications throughout the text, in the form of marginal photos with
explanatory captions
-Looking back at lists essential past concepts at the beginning of each chapter, for the students to
know what to master before digging into the current chapter
