Summary

This best-selling algebra-based physics book is known for its elegantwriting,engagingbiological applications, and exactness. Physics: Principles with Applications,Sixth Edition with MasteringPhysics trade; retains the careful exposition and precision of previous editions with many interesting new applications and carefully crafted new pedagogy. It was written to give readers the basic concepts of physics in a manner that is accessible and clear. The goal is for readers to view the world through eyes that know physics. The new edition also features MasteringPhysics and an unparalleled suite of media and on-line resources to enhance the physics classroom.Describing Motion: Kinematics in One Dimension, Kinematics in Two Dimensions; Vectors, Motion and Force: Dynamics, Circular Motion; Gravitation, Work and Energy, Linear Momentum, Rotational Motion, Bodies in Equilibrium; Elasticity and Fracture, Fluids, Vibrations and Waves, Sound, Temperature and Kinetic Theory, Heat, The Laws of Thermodynamics, Electric Charge and Electric Field, Electric Potential and Electric Energy; Capacitance, Electric Currents, DC Circuits, Magnetism, Electromagnetic Induction and Faraday's Law; AC Circuits, Electromagnetic Waves, Light: Geometric Optics, The Wave Nature of Light, Optical Instruments, Special Theory of Relativity, Early Quantum Theory and Models of the Atom, Quantum Mechanics of Atoms, Molecules and Solids, Nuclear Physics and Radioactivity, Nuclear Energy; Effects and Uses of Radiation, Elementary Particles, Astrophysics and Cosmology.Intended for anyone interested in learning the basics of physics.

Author Biography

Douglas C. Giancoli obtained his BA in physics (summa cum laude) from the University of California, Berkeley, his MS in physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and his PhD in elementary particle physics at the University of California, Berkeley. He spent 2 years as a post-doctoral fellow at UC Berkeley’s Virus lab developing skills in molecular biology and biophysics. His mentors include Nobel winners Emilio Segré and Donald Glaser.

 

He has taught a wide range of undergraduate courses, traditional as well as innovative ones, and continues to update his texbooks meticulously, seeking ways to better provide an understanding of physics for students.

 

Doug’s favorite spare-time activity is the outdoors, especially climbing peaks. He says climbing peaks is like learning physics: it takes effort and the rewards are great.
