9780201521955: University Physics: Extended Edition

University Physics with Modern Physics, Technology Update, Thirteenth Edition continues to set the benchmark for clarity and rigor combined with effective teaching and research-based innovation. The Thirteenth Edition Technology Update contains QR codes throughout the textbook, enabling students to use their smartphone or tablet to instantly watch interactive videos about relevant demonstrations or problem-solving strategies. University Physics is known for its uniquely broad, deep, and thoughtful set of worked examples-key tools for developing both physical understanding and problem-solving skills. The Thirteenth Edition revises all the Examples and Problem-solving Strategies to be more concise and direct while maintaining the Twelfth Edition's consistent, structured approach and strong focus on modeling as well as math. To help students tackle challenging as well as routine problems, the Thirteenth Edition adds Bridging Problems to each chapter, which pose a difficult, multiconcept problem and provide a skeleton solution guide in the form of questions and hints. The text's rich problem sets-developed and refined over six decades-are upgraded to include larger numbers of problems that are biomedically oriented or require calculus. The problem-set revision is driven by detailed student-performance data gathered nationally through MasteringPhysics (R), making it possible to fine-tune the reliability, effectiveness, and difficulty of individual problems. Complementing the clear and accessible text, the figures use a simple graphic style that focuses on the physics. They also incorporate explanatory annotations-a technique demonstrated to enhance learning. This package consists of: Univeristy Physics with Modern Physics Technology Update, Volume 2 (Chapters 21-27), Thirteenth Edition

About the Author:

Hugh D. Young is Professor of Physics at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. He attended Carnegie Mellon for both undergraduate and graduate study and earned his Ph.D. in fundamental particle theory under the direction of the late Richard Cutkosky. He joined the faculty of Carnegie Mellon in 1956, and has also spent two years as a visiting Professor at the University of California at Berkeley. Hugh's career has centered entirely around undergraduate education. He has written several undergraduate-level textbooks, and in 1973 he became a coauthor with Francis Sears and Mark Zemansky for their well-known introductory texts. In addition to his role on Sears and Zemansky's "College Physics," he is currently a coauthor with Roger Freedman on Sears and Zemanksy's "University Physics,"

Hugh is an enthusiastic skier, climber, and hiker. He also served for several years as Associate Organist at St. Paul's Cathedral in Pittsburgh, and has played numerous organ recitals in the Pittsburgh area. Prof. Young and his wife Alice usually travel extensively in the summer, especially in Europe and in the desert canyon country of southern Utah.

Robert M. Geller teaches physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he also obtained his Ph.D. under Robert Antonucci in observational cosmology. Currently, he is involved in two major research projects: a search for cosmological halos predicted by the Big Bang, and a search for the flares that are predicted to occur when a supermassive black hole consumes a star.

Rob also has a strong focus on undergraduate education. In 2003, he received the Distinguished Teaching Award. He trains the graduate student teaching assistants onmethods of physics education. He is also a frequent faculty leader for the UCSB Physics Circus, in which student volunteers perform exciting and thought-provoking physics demonstrations to elementary schools.

Rob loves the outdoors. He and his wife Susanne enjoy backpacking along rivers and fly fishing, usually with rods she has build and flies she has tied. Their daughter Zoe loves fishing too, but her fish tend to be plastic, and float in the bathtub.

Michael R. Freedman, PhD, teaches psychology at the University of Colorado in Boulder, where he also maintains a private practice. Formerly, Dr. Freedman was Chief of Adult Clinical Psychology at the National Jewish Medical and Research Center, where he specialized in treating patients with asthma and other respiratory illnesses.
Samuel J. Rosenberg, PhD, is formerly Director of Adult Psychology Training at the National Jewish Medical and Research Center and Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. He is now Vice President of Ross & Roberts, Inc., in Stratford, Connecticut.
Cynthia L. Divino, PhD, is a clinical psychologist in Boulder, Colorado. Specializing in working with children and adolescents, she served as a pediatric psychologist at the National Jewish Medical and Research Center.
