Intended for non-science majors Physics Courses
Since defining this course 30 years ago, Paul Hewitt's best-selling text continues as the benchmark by which all others are judged. In Conceptual Physics Twelfth Edition Paul Hewitt makes physics interesting, understandable, and relevant for non-science majors. The Twelfth Edition will delight students with informative and fun Hewitt-Drew-It screencasts, updated content and applications.
Hewitt's text is guided by the principle of "concepts be
Now brought up to date, this improved second edition is ideal for classical mechanics courses for first- and second-year undergraduates with foundation skills in mathematics. The book retains all the features of the first edition, but with new examples taken from recent developments and a solutions manual for instructors at www.cambridge.org/kandk.
With many worked examples and over 200 homework exercises, this comprehensive textbook, first published in 1998, covers all the standard material in a graduate course on classical dynamics, plus advanced topics such as the relativistic Kepler problem, Liouville and Darboux theorems, and inverse and chaotic scattering. A solutions manual is available exclusively for instructors.
This is the revised and updated version of an established textbook. It describes the physical methods involved in exploration for hydrocarbons and minerals. These tools include gravity, magnetic, seismic, electrical, electromagnetic, and radioactivity studies.
