Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?

  • The eBook copy of this book is not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.


Open the door to the fascinating world of physics! The most fundamental of all natural sciences, physics will reveal to you the basic principles of the Universe. And while physics can seem challenging, its true beauty lies in the sheer simplicity of fundamental physical theories--theories and concepts that can enrich your view of the world around you. ENHANCED COLLEGE PHYSICS, VOLUME I gives you a clear and logical presentation of the basic concepts, and with its integrated media resources, you have the maximum opportunity for success! Each new text includes access to PHYSICSNOW, the ultimate web-based homework and tutorial system! This interactive learning system tailors itself to your needs in the course. It's like having a personal tutor available whenever you need it!
