For nearly 30 years, Paul Tipler's Physics for Scientists and Engineers has set the standard for science and engineering students taking introductory physics courses. This Fifth Edition introduces co-author Gene Mosca, resulting in a teaching tool that retains its clarity, precision and rigour, but also offers students the support they need to solve problems strategically and to gain real understanding of physical concepts. - New features include enhanced working examples including some new 'Plausibility checks' and 'Put it in Context' examples where each chapter contains one or more 'context-rich' worked examples that state the problem indirectly. Drawing on their extensive classroom experiences, the authors identify and address common misconceptions about physics, adding twenty percent new end-of-chapter problems and new Estimation/Approximation Problems to test conceptual understanding. The new edition also includes additional engineering and biological applications, totally revised and expanded solutions and improved photo and artwork to provide a more student friendly approach. - A companion Web site is available at www.whfreeman.com/tipler5e with Online Quizzing and multiple choice quizzes for each of the book's chapters and Mastering the Concept Worked Examples. - For instructors, the site also features the Online Instructor's Resource Manual in pdf format. An Instructor's resource CD-ROM is also available (0-7167-9839-5). - An extended edition of the book is available containing volumes 1,2 and an additional volume 3: Elementary Modern Physics: Quantum mechanics, Relativity and The Structure of Matter 1300 pages, GBP 36.99, 0-7167-4389-2 - It is also available as three paperbacks: - Vol. 1: Mechanics, Oscillations and Waves, Thermodynamics including the Relativity minichapter.GBP 31.99, 0-7167-8338-X. - Vol. 2: Electricity and Magnetism GBP 31.99, 0-7167-8337-1. - Vol. 3: Elementary Modern Physics: Quantum Mechanics, Relativity and The Structure of Matter GBP 23.99, 0-7167-8336-3 - SUPPLEMENTS - Study Guide, Vol. 1, 0-7167-8332-0; Vols. 2 & 3, 0-7167-8331-2 - Student Solutions Manual, Vol. 1, 0-7167-8333-9; Vols. 2 & 3, 0-7167-8334-7 - Instructor's Solutions Manual, Vol. 1, 0-7167-9640-6; Vols. 2 & 3, 0-7167-9639-2 - 150 full-colour Overhead Transparencies, 0-7167-9664-3 - Test Bank CD-ROM, 0-7167-9653-8 (printed: 0-7167-9652-X) - Offers 3,500 multiple choice and new essay questions from the text - approximately 20 percent more questions per chapter.
