The basic nature of the text remains the same but numerous modifications have been made to enhance its teachability. Photometry units and definitions are now consistent with the latest publications. A discussion of ideal fluid flow with Bernoulli's equation and the conservation of mass has been added. An expanded mathematics section of the appendix includes logarithms and their equations as well as approximations and trigonometric identities. Problems are greater in both number and variety.
A textbook for a full-year course for students who will apply the principles of physics in the world of technology. This revised and updated edition, prepared by David Wallach, adds some 200 new problems as well as a discussion of ideal fluid flow with Bernoulli's equation and the conservation of mass.
