Description

For any introductory physics course with an applied approach, such as in career programs in community and technical colleges, vocational-technical programs in secondary schools, and for general education physics courses at colleges and universities where an applied approach is desirable.

Applied Physics, Ninth Edition (formerly Physics for Career Education) provides comprehensive and practical coverage of physics for students needing an applied physics approach or considering a vocational-technical career. It emphasizes physical concepts as applied to industrial-technical fields and uses common applications to improve the physics and mathematics competence of students. The text is divided into five major areas: mechanics, matter and heat, wave motion and sound, electricity and magnetism, and light and modern physics.
