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.
