While physics can seem challenging, its true quality is the sheer simplicity of fundamental physical theories--theories and concepts that can enrich your view of the world around you. COLLEGE PHYSICS, Tenth Edition, provides a clear strategy for connecting those theories to a consistent problem-solving approach, carefully reinforcing this methodology throughout the text and connecting it to real-world examples. For students planning to take the MCAT exam, the text includes exclusive test prep and review tools to help you prepare. This Hybrid version features the same content and coverage as the full text combined with our integrated digital homework solution, WebAssign, giving a more interactive learning experience, plus the convenience of a text that is both brief and affordable.
