Summary

Thirty years ago, this best-selling book defined the "conceptual" approach to introductory physics. Today, the Ninth Edition shows how text and media can be integrated to bring physics to life for non-scientists. <P> Hewitt's book engages readers with analogies and imagery from real-world situations to build a strong conceptual understanding of physical principles ranging from classical mechanics to modern physics. With this strong foundation, readers are better equipped to understand the equations and formulas of physics, and motivated to explore the thought-provoking exercises and fun projects in each chapter. Icons in this new edition direct readers to The Physics Place web site (www.physicsplace.com) where they will find interactive and animated tutorials, video demonstrations, and hundreds of problems and activities. This new text-media combination gives readers more of what they need -whether it's animated explanations or interactive exercises -to make the connections between the concepts of physics and their everyday world. For college instructors and students.
