  • Conceptual Physics

    Paul G. Hewitt

    Hardcover (Benjamin-Cummings Pub Co, June 30, 2005)
    Brief Description: Since defining this course 30 years ago, Paul HewittÂ’s best-selling book continues to be the benchmark book that two-thirds of professors use and by which all others are judged. In Conceptual Physics, Eleventh Edition Paul Hewitt shows how a compelling book and the most advanced media can be integrated to empower professors as they bring physics to life for non-science majors, both in and out of class. For the Eleventh Edition , Hewitt helps readers connect physics to their everyday experiences and the world around them, and provides additional help on solving mathematical problems. HewittÂ’s book is famous for engaging readers with analogies and imagery from real-world situations that build a strong conceptual understanding of physical principles ranging from classical mechanics to modern physics. With this strong foundation, readers are better equipped to understand the equations and formulas of physics, and are motivated to explore the thought-provoking exercises and fun projects in each chapter. The new edition features a fresh new design, content that is more focused on physics applications, and updated pedagogical features. Key Topics: About Science, NewtonÂ’s First Law of Motion: Inertia, Linear Motion, NewtonÂ’s Second Law of Motion: Force and Acceleration NewtonÂ’s Third Law of Motion: Action and Reaction, Momentum, Energy, Rotational Motion, Gravity, Projectile and Satellite Motion Atomic Nature of Matter, Solids, Liquids, Gases and Plasmas, Temperature, Heat and Expansion, Heat Transfer, Change of Phase Thermodynamics, Vibrations and Waves, Sound, Musical Sounds, Electrostatics, Electric Current, Magnetism, Electromagnetic Induction, Properties of Light, Color, Reflection and Refraction, Light Waves, Light Emission, Light Quanta, The Atom and the Quantum, Atomic Nucleus and Radioactivity, Nuclear Fission and Fusion, Special Theory of Relativity, General Theory of Relativity Appendices Market: Intended for those interested in learning the basics of conceptual physics

  • Conceptual Physical Science Explorations

    Paul G. Hewitt, John A. Suchocki, Leslie A. Hewitt

    Hardcover (Benjamin Cummings, Feb. 19, 2009)
    Focused on the idea that the rules of the physical world can be taught using a conceptual approach that emphasizes qualitative analysis, the Hewitt team has created a book that is highly readable, flexible, and hands-on. Thirty-four concisely written chapters allow you to better select topics to match your course and the needs of your readers in a one- or two- semester course. "Conceptual Physical Science Explorations, 2/e "presents a clear and engaging introduction to physics, chemistry, astronomy, and earth sciences. The authors use analogies and everyday examples to clarify key concepts and help readers better understand the world around them. The textbook's consistent, high-quality coverage stimulates active learning with critical thinking exercises, hands-on experiments, review questions, and quantitative problems. "Conceptual Physical Science Explorations"is less rigorous in coverage and written more simply than Conceptual Physical Science, Fourth Edition, and directed primarily to college courses where students are less well prepared, and in some cases, remedial. About Science, Newton's First Law of Motion - Inertia, Newton's Second Law of Motion - Force and Acceleration, Newton's Third Law of Motion - Action and Reaction, Momentum, Energy, Gravity, Fluid Mechanics, Heat, Electricity, Magnetism, Waves and Sound, Light and Color, Properties of Light, The Atom, Nuclear Energy, Elements of Chemistry, How Atoms Bond and Molecules Attract, How Chemicals Mix, How Chemicals React, Two Types of Chemical Reactions, Organic Compounds, The Chemistry of Drugs, Nutrition, Rocks and Minerals, Earth's Interior, Plate Tectonics, Earth's Surface Features, Earth History Over Time, Oceans andAtmosphere, Driving Forces of Weather, The Solar System, Stars and Galaxies, The Structure of Space and Time.
