Description:

In Hecht's groundbreaking book, you'll find real-life applications, an unparalleled art and photography program, a presentation that anticipates students' questions, and an approach that emphasizes contemporary physics while interweaving historical perspectives. Hecht's coverage of classical physics is clear and insightful. He shows students how 21st-century physics illuminates the classical topics of each chapter, adding excitement to the subject matter. Over 1,300 illustrations make it possible for students to visualize a diversity of physical phenomena. Many of these are multi-frame, sequential drawings allowing students to comprehend the temporal unfolding of complex events. A selection of sketch art teaches students how to create problem-solving diagrams. This new edition of the text was designed to aggressively address the issue of problem solving for students (guided by contemporary physics education research). To this end Hecht has provided not only his approach to the five-step problem-solving framework but also a wide range of new problems and solutions specifically designed to build student capability and confidence.
