In the new Second Edition of College Physics, Peter Urone succeeds in carrying out several goals: to convey the concepts of physics and to help students build the analytical skills to apply them; to help students gain an appreciation for the underlying simplicity and unity in nature; and to impart a sense of the beauty and wonder found in the physical universe. To accomplish these goals, Urone blends coverage of the traditional topics with modern material; and familiar ideas from modern physics, such as the existence of atoms and the conversion of mass into energy, are incorporated early. Topics are introduced conceptually with a steady progression to precise definitions and analytical applications. The analytical aspect (problem solving) is tied back to the concept before moving on to another topic. Urone uses a four-part example and problem-solving mechanism to improve students' skills in solving problems, as well as understanding underlying concepts. The human, biological, and medical applications throughout the text are an important aspect of College Physics, Second Edition. By using human applications throughout the text, Urone encourages conceptual and analytical understanding of the material.
