COLLEGE PHYSICS provides students with a clear and logical presentation of the basic concepts and principles of physics. The authors include a broad range of contemporary applications to motivate students understanding of how physics works in the real world. In addition, new pedagogy, reflecting the findings of physics education research, has been added to help students improve their problem solving skills and conceptual understanding. The text's flexible, accessible, and focused presentation, coupled with extraordinary text/media integration through PhysicsNow, gives instructors and students the tools they need to succeed. This text, which covers the standard topics in classical physics and 20th century physics, is divided into six parts. Newtonian mechanics and the physics of fluids (Part I); heat and thermodynamics (Part II); wave motion and sound (Part III); electricity and magnetism (Part IV); properties of light and the field of geometric and wave optics (Part V); and an introduction to special relativity, quantum physics, and atomic and nuclear physics (Part VI).

About the Author:

Raymond A. Serway received his Doctorate at Illinois Institute of Technology and is Professor Emeritus at James Madison University. In 1990, he received the 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 of 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, Sam Marshall. Dr. Serway is also the co-author of PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS, Fourth Edition, PHYSICS FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS, Sixth Edition, MODERN PHYSICS, Third Edition, and the high-school textbook PHYSICS, published by Holt, Rinehart, & Winston. 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, golfing, fishing, and spending quality time with their four children and six grandchildren.

Review:

"I find Serway and Faughn reads the best for students and looks (no kidding, it's important) the best. I like the Quick Quizzes. When I taught this course with previous editions, I almost never used any Conceptual questions because of the difficulty for the students to get much feedback. This was mainly because of the large class size, the wide variation of student ability, and the lack of answers for the students. With the answers to these questions in the back, that changes my position on this."

"Overall, I like the book. It is colorful, rich, mature, and reliable. There are a wide variety of resources available to the students."

"I was very happy to find both Newton's Law of Gravitation, and the formula for the period of a simple pendulum, both appearing in this chapter. By and large, I think the presentation in this book of the notions of velocity and acceleration to be quite successful."

"Your book gives great examples. Would offer no changes to that! The organization of SandF reflects the fact that the authors are (of necessity) physicists; what I mean by this is that the order in which mechanics is presented reflects the way a physicist would think. My opinion remains the same; it is one of the best textbooks at this level."

"The treatment of friction is excellent."
