Customer Reviews

A highly readable overview of physics  May 5, 2011
by


Art Hobson owns the gift of great teachers and authors. He understands, communicates, and visualizes. So, this textbook is well written and I think it is organized well. It has eighteen chapters organized into five parts. The author starts framing the universe in its vast size and the stars as well as exposing the principles of atoms and their constituent parts. The textbook is a treat, a great teacher, a perfect gift for anyone interested in the "who, what, where, how" of things and us. The "why" is left to the imagination of each reader.






Physics : Concepts and Connections: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

Key Benefit: Written for the non-science major, this book emphasizes modern physics and the scientific processóand engages readers by drawing connections between physics and everyday experience. Hobson takes a conceptual approach, with an appropriate focus on quantitative skills. The Fifth Edition increases coverage of key environmental topics such as global warming and energy, and adds new topics such as momentum. Hobsonís book remains the least expensive book available for readers taking nonmajors physics.

Key Topics: The Way of Science: Experience and Reason, Atoms: The Nature of Things, How Things Move: Galileo Asks the Right Questions, Why Things Move as They Do, Newtonís Universe, Conservation of Energy: You Canít Get Ahead, Second Law of Thermodynamics: and you Canít Even Break Even, Light and Electromagnetism, Electromagnetism Radiation and Global Climate Change, The Special Theory of Relativity, The General Theory of Relativity and the New Cosmology, The Quantum Idea, The Quantum Universe, The Nucleus and Radioactivity: An New Force, Fusion and Fission: and a New Energy, The Energy Challenge, Quantum Fields: Relativity Meets the Quantum.
