KEY MESSAGE: As the most widely adopted new physics text in more than 50 years, Knight’s Physics for Scientists and Engineers was 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.Knight’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.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. Newton's Laws: Concepts of Motion Kinematics in One Dimension Vectors and Coordinate Systems Kinematics in Two Dimensions Force and Motion Dynamics I: Motion Along a Line Dynamics II: Interacting Objects Dynamics III: Motion in a Plane Conservation Laws: Impulse and Momentum Energy Work Applications of Newtonian Mechanics: Rotation of a Rigid Body Newton's Theory of Gravity Oscillations Fluids and Elasticity Thermodynamics: A Macroscopic Description of Matter Work, Heat, and the First Law of Thermodynamics The Micro/Macro Connection Heat Engines and Refrigerators Waves and Optics: Traveling Waves Superposition Wave Optics Ray Optics Optical Instruments Modern Optics and Matter Waves Electricity and Magnetism: Electric Charges and Forces The Electric Field Gauss's Law The Electric Potential Potential and Field Current and Conductivity Fundamentals of Circuits The Magnetic Field Electromagnetic Induction Electromagnetic Fields and Waves AC Circuits Relativity and Quantum Physics: Relativity The End of Classical Physics Quantization Wave Functions and Probabilities One-Dimensional Quantum Mechanics Atomic Physics Nuclear Physics MARKET:For all readers interested in leading students to a deeper and better-connected understanding of the concepts and more proficient problem-solving skills.
