Description: KEY MESSAGE: As the most widely adopted new physics text in more than 50 years, Knightrsquo;sPhysics for Scientists and Engineerswas published to widespread critical acclaim from professors and students. In this eagerly awaited second edition, Knight builds on the research-proven instructional techniques he introduced, as well as national data of student performance, to take student learning even further.nbsp;Knightrsquo;s unparalleled insight into student learning difficulties, and his impeccably skillful crafting of text and figures at every level from macro to micro to address these difficulties, results in a uniquely effective and accessible book, leading students to a deeper and better-connected understanding of the concepts and more proficient problem-solving skills.nbsp;Building on an NSF-sponsored educational research program and input from tens of thousands of student users, the second edition refines and extends the pedagogical innovations that years of use has now shown to be effective. Unprecedented analysis of national student metadata has allowed every problem to be systematically enhanced for educational effectives, and to ensure problem sets of ideal topic coverage, balance of qualitative and quantitative problems, and range of difficulty and duration. nbsp; Newtons Laws: Concepts of Motion bull; Kinematics in One Dimension bull; Vectors and Coordinate Systems bull; Kinematics in Two Dimensions bull; Force and Motion bull; Dynamics I: Motion Along a Line bull; Dynamics II: Interacting Objects bull; Dynamics III: Motion in a Plane Conservation Laws: nbsp;Impulse and Momentum bull; Energy bull; Work Applications of Newtonian Mechanics: Rotation of a Rigid Body bull; Newtons Theory of Gravity bull; Oscillations bull; Fluids and Elasticity Thermodynamics: A Macroscopic Description of Matter bull; Work, Heat, and the First Law of Thermodynamics bull;nbsp;The Micro/Macro Connection bull;nbsp;Heat Engines and Refrigerators Waves and Optics: Traveling Waves bull;nbsp;Superposition bull; Wave Optics bull; Ray Optics bull; Optical Instruments bull; nbsp;Modern Optics and Matter Waves Electricity and Magnetism: Electric Charges and Forces bull; nbsp;The Electric Field bull; Gausss Law bull; The Electric Potential bull; Potential and Field bull; Current and Conductivity bull; Fundamentals of Circuits bull; The Magnetic Field bull; Electromagnetic Induction bull; Electromagnetic Fields and Waves bull; AC Circuits nbsp;Relativity and Quantum Physics: Relativity bull; The End of Classical Physics bull; Quantization bull; Wave Functions and Probabilities bull; One-Dimensional Quantum Mechanics bull; Atomic Physics bull; Nuclear Physics nbsp; MARKET:nbsp;For all readers interested in leading students to a deeper and better-connected understanding of the concepts and more proficient problem-solving skills. nbsp;
