For Technical or Applied Physics courses. Introducing students to basic physics in an accessible and meaningful manner that helps them realize the inherent importance of this useful science, Physics for Career Education, 7/e provides a solid foundation in physical concepts as applied to industrial-technical fields, with logically organized analyses of mechanics, matter and heat, wave motion and sound, electricity and magnetism, and light and modern physics. Enlightening and motivating students with a healthy integration of real-world applications, it offers one of the most clearly written presentations available, presenting concepts in short, manageable sections with many graphics for visual support. It continues to feature extensive and superbly structured problem sets and examples, and now includes many new photos, greater clarity in discussions, and updated topical coverage.
