For more than five decades, Sears and Zemansky's College Physics has provided the most reliable foundation of physics education for students around the world. The Ninth Edition continues that tradition with new features that directly address the demands on today's student and today's classroom. A broad and thorough introduction to physics, this new edition maintains its highly respected, traditional approach while implementing some new solutions to student difficulties. Many ideas stemming from educational research help students develop greater confidence in solving problems, deepen conceptual understanding, and strengthen quantitative-reasoning skills, while helping them connect what they learn with their other courses and the changing world around them. Math review has been expanded to encompass a full chapter, complete with end-of-chapter questions, and in each chapter biomedical applications and problems have been added along with a set of MCAT-style passage problems. Media resources have been strengthened and linked to the Pearson eText, MasteringPhysics®, and much more. This packge contains: College Physics, Ninth Edition MasteringPhysics with Pearson eText Student Access Code Card - College Physics byCall Number: QC23.2 .K6493 2013ISBN: 9780321815408Publication Date: 2012-01-02Building on the research-proven instructional techniques introduced in Knight's Physics for Scientists and Engineers, the most widely adopted new physics text in more than 30 years, College Physics: A Strategic Approach set a new standard for algebra-based introductory physics--gaining widespread critical acclaim from professors and students alike. For the Second Edition, Randy Knight, Brian Jones, and Stuart Field continue to apply the best results from educational research and refine and tailor them for this course and the particular needs of its students. New pedagogical features (Chapter Previews, Integrated Examples, and Part Summary problems) and fine-tuned and streamlined content take the hallmarks of the First Edition--exceptionally effective conceptual explanation and problem-solving instruction-to a new level. More than any other book, College Physics leads you to proficient and long-lasting problem-solving skills, a deeper and better-connected understanding of the concepts, and a broader picture of the relevance of physics to your chosen career and the world around you. College Physics Technology Update, Second Edition is accompanied by more than 100 QR codes that appear throughout the textbook, enabling you to use your smartphone or tablet to instantly watch interactive videos about relevant demonstrations or problem-solving strategies.
- Introduction to Environmental Soil Physics byCall Number: S592.3 .H545 2004ISBN: 9780123486554Publication Date: 2003-12-17Located in the Ford Motor Company Library

An abridged, student-oriented edition of Hillel's earlier published Environmental Soil Physics, Introduction to Environmental Soil Physics is a more succinct elucidation of the physical principles and processes governing the behavior of soil and the vital role it plays in both natural and managed ecosystems. The textbook is self-contained and self-explanatory, with numerous illustrations and sample problems. Based on sound fundamental theory, the textbook leads to a practical consideration of soil as a living system in nature and illustrates the influences of human activity upon soil structure and function. Students, as well as other readers, will better understand the importance of soils and the pivotal possition they occupy with respect to careful and knowledgeable conservation. - Physics byCall Number: QC23.2 .W35 2010ISBN: 9780321541635Publication Date: 2009-01-11Located in the Engineering Library--Foster Hall

Walker’s goal is to help students make the connection between a conceptual understanding of physics and the various skills necessary to solve quantitative problems. The pedagogy and approach are based on over 20 years of teaching and reflect the results of physics education research. Already one of the best-selling textbooks in algebra-based physics,The Fourth Edition strengthens both the conceptual foundations and the tools for problem solving to make the book even better suited to today's students.

- Understanding Physics byCall Number: Electronic BookISBN: 9780387987569Publication Date: 2002-09-10A thorough grounding in contemporary physics while placing the subject into its social and historical context. Based largely on the highly respected Project Physics Course developed by two of the authors, it also integrates the results of recent pedagogical research. The text thus teaches the basic phenomena in the physical world and the concepts developed to explain them; shows that science is a rational human endeavour with a long and continuing tradition, involving many different cultures and people; develops facility in critical thinking, reasoned argumentation, evaluation of evidence, mathematical modelling, and ethical values. The treatment emphasises not only what we know but also how we know it, why we believe it, and what effects this knowledge has.
- Physics Demystified byCall Number: Electronic BookISBN: 9780071382014Publication Date: 2002-08-01YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A ROCKET SCIENTIST TO UNDERSTAND PHYSICSNow anyone with an interest in the physical sciences can master physics -- without formal training or drowning in a sea of complicated formulas and equations. In "Physics Demystified best-selling author Stan Gibilisco offers a fun, effective, and totally painless way to learn the fundamentals and general concepts of physics. With "Physics Demystified you master the subject one simple step at a time - at your own speed. Unlike most books on physics, general principles are presented first - and the details follow. In order to make the learning process as clear and simple as possible, heavy-duty math, formulas, and equations are kept to a minimum. This unique self-teaching guide offers questions at the end of each chapter and section to pinpoint weaknesses, and a 100-question final exam to reinforce the entire book.Simple enough for a beginner but challenging enough for an advanced student, "Physics Demystified is your direct route to learning or brushing up on physics.HERE'S EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO: * Understand the math used in physical science* Solve mass/force/acceleration problems* Create mathematical models of physical phenomena* Perform distance vs. time calculations* Determine potential and kinetic energy* Calculate the wavelength of sounds and radio signals* Understand visible light interference patterns* Calculate the energy and frequency of a moving particle* Understand atomic structure* Learn about electric current, voltage, resistance, power, and energy

- Physics of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials byCall Number: Electronic BookISBN: 9780306474217Publication Date: 2003-01-31In this book, the fundamentals of magnetism are treated, starting at an introductory level. The origin of magnetic moments, the response to an applied magnetic field, and the various interactions giving rise to different types of magnetic ordering in solids are presented and many examples are given. Crystalline-electric-field effects are treated at a level that is sufficient to provide the basic knowledge necessary in understanding the properties of materials in which these effects play a role. Itinerant-electron magnetism is presented on a similar basis. Particular attention has been given to magnetocrystalline magnetic anisotropy and the magnetocaloric effect. Also, the usual techniques for magnetic measurements are presented. About half of the book is devoted to magnetic materials and the properties that make them suitable for numerous applications. The state of the art is presented of permanent magnets, high-density recording materials, soft-magnetic materials, Invar alloys and magnetostrictive materials. Many references are given.
