This successful text was the first to address the latest teaching and learning trends as suggested by the Introductory University Physics Project (IUPP) guidelines. PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS features a concise approach to traditional topics, an early introduction to modern physics, integration of physics education research pedagogies, as well as the integration of contemporary topics throughout the text. This revision of PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS also contains text/media integration unlike no other through the PhysicsNow online assessment, tutorial, and course management system.

Raymond A. Serway received his doctorate at Illinois Institute of Technology and is Professor Emeritus at James Madison University. In 2011, he was awarded an honorary doctorate degree from his alma mater, Utica College. He received the 1990 Madison Scholar Award at James Madison University, where he taught for 17 years. Dr. Serway began his teaching career at Clarkson University, where he conducted research and taught from 1967 to 1980. He was the recipient of the Distinguished Teaching Award at Clarkson University in 1977 and the Alumni Achievement Award from Utica College in 1985. As Guest Scientist at the IBM Research Laboratory in Zurich, Switzerland, he worked with K. Alex Müller, 1987 Nobel Prize recipient. Dr. Serway also was a visiting scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, where he collaborated with his mentor and friend, the late Sam Marshall. In addition to PHYSICS FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS, Dr. Serway is the coauthor of PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS, Fifth Edition; COLLEGE PHYSICS, Ninth Edition; ESSENTIALS OF COLLEGE PHYSICS; MODERN PHYSICS, Third Edition; and the high school textbook PHYSICS, published by Holt McDougal. In addition, Dr. Serway has published more than 40 research papers in the field of condensed matter physics and has given more than 60 presentations at professional meetings. Dr. Serway and his wife Elizabeth enjoy traveling, playing golf, fishing, gardening, singing in the church choir, and especially spending quality time with their four children, nine grandchildren, and a recent great-grandson.Review:
"The Context sections are absolutely fantastic. They are extremely useful. I love them. It is one of the main reasons that I really like this book...I am completely satisfied with the new Context [Alternative-Fuel Vehicles] and the conclusion. I think most students will appreciate this topic, and the relevance of physics in designing and developing future transportation systems...Overall, the new edition looks great. I am looking forward to using it."
"We have used this textbook since its 1st edition. One reason for its adoption was that we feel it is lucidly written and contains about the right amount of detail for our students. Students particularly appreciate the end-of-chapter summaries, as well as the several worked examples throughout the text."
[Regarding Context 9] "The authors here attempt something very cool: they set before the student spectacular and esoteric phenomena (the Big Bang and quark interactions) of vastly different scale lengths, and they hold out the hope that despite the disparities, there are themes in physics that can help us understand both, that apply to both--a beguiling way of drawing the student into a study of modern physics. Very cool."
"You have done a good job of coordinating the specific problem-solving hints with the general problem-solving hints...Context 1, Alternative-Fuel Vehicles: this is written well, it is interesting, and it introduces the concept of energy as the central theme for the next seven chapters. Did I mention that I like it?"
