The eleventh edition helps students master physical concepts, improve their problem-solving skills and enrich their understanding of the world around them.
The text provides a clear strategy for connecting theories to a consistent problem-solving approach, carefully reinforcing this methodology throughout the text and connecting it to real world examples.
– Conceptual questions provide students with a means of self-testing the concepts presented in the topic; some are also appropriate for initiating classroom discussions.
– Symbolic problems train students to postpone substitution of values, facilitating their ability to think conceptually using the equations.
– Guided problems break a problem into smaller steps, enabling students to grasp all the concepts and strategies required to arrive at a correct solution.
– Margin notes make the relevance of physics to everyday life more obvious by pointing out examples in the text.
