Book Description

Physics is all around us everyday. From taking a jog; to driving your bike; from microscopic and nano processes to the enormity of space; and in the everchanging technology of our modern world; we encounter physics daily without fail. As physics is a subject we are constantly immersed in and is used to forge tomorrow’s most exciting discoveries; our goal is to remove the intimidation factor of physics and replace it with a sense of wonder and curiosity. Physics for Scientists and Engineers: An Interactive Approach 2nd edition (PDF) takes this approach using real inspirational examples and applications to bring physics to life in the most relevant and real ways for its students. The textbook is written with Canadian instructors and college students in mind and is informed by Physics Education Research (PER) with international context and great examples. Physics for Scientists and Engineers 2E gives college and university students unparalleled practice opportunities and digital support to foster student comprehension and success.

Note: Purchase only includes the PDF of the book Physics for Scientists and Engineers: An Interactive Approach 2e. No other online resources or codes included
