Abstract:

This book is intended for a course in introductory physics for students majoring in science or engineering ... This introductory physics textbook has two main objectives: to provide the student with a clear and logical presentation of the basic concepts and principles through a broad range of interesting applications to the real world. To meet these objectives, [the authors] have placed emphasis on sound physical arguments and problem-solving methodology. At the same time, [they] have attempted to motivate the student through practical examples that demonstrate the role of physics in other disciplines, including engineering, chemistry, and medicine.-Pref.
