Written for the non-science major, this text emphasizes modern physics and the scientific processand engages students by drawing connections between physics and everyday experience. Hobson takes a conceptual approach, with an appropriate focus on quantitative skills. The Fifth Edition increases coverage of key environmental topics such as global warming and energy, and adds new topics such as momentum. Hobsonrsquo;s text remains the least expensive textbook available for students taking nonmajors physics.
