Designed for medical professionals who may struggle with making the leap to conceptual understanding and applying physics, the eighth edition continues to build transferable problem-solving skills. It includes a set of features such as Analyzing-Multiple-Concept Problems, Check Your Understanding, Concepts & Calculations, and Concepts at a Glance. This helps the reader to first identify the physics concepts, then associate the appropriate mathematical equations, and finally to work out an algebraic solution. They ll also be able to work high quality problem sets and gain immediate feedback through WileyPLUS, the online problem-solving management system. New Focus on Concept questions are featured in WileyPLUS, offering medical professionals a set of thought provoking conceptual questions as well as calculation problems.
New edition of a two-volume text that helps students develop a conceptual understanding of physics principles. Cutnell and Johnson (Southern Illinois U. at Carbondale) present 32 chapters that cover mechanics, thermal physics, wave motion, electricity and magnetism, light and optics, and modern physics. In the margins, they highlight direct applications of physics principles, problem solving insights, concepts at a glance, and illustrative figures and color photographs. Each volume has a separate ISBN. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
