Description:

For one-semester courses in Physics for technology students. This innovative introduction to physics for electronics technology offers unique single-volume coverage of both electronics and physics and makes clear the relevance of physics to a career in electronics. It replaces lengthy derivations and theoretical discussions on physics with practical applications of physics students will actually encounter in industryand it relates all physics concepts to devices students already know (e.g., speedometer, thermometer, weight scale, etc.).
