Like having a private coach at their elbows, this introduction to algebra-based physics involves readers actively in a guided learn-by-doing process—sensing when they need a very patient exposition and when they need only minimal reinforcement, when they need to focus on concepts and when they need an opportunity to practice their quantitative skills. At the heart of the volume are worked examples in a unique, two-column format that focuses on the basic strategies and step-by-step thought processes involved in problem solving—with an emphasis on the relationship between the physical concepts and their mathematical expression. Color-coded drawings help readers visualize physics problems, and companion photographs show the same principle at work in different physical contexts, or juxtapose situations in which contrasting principles are at work. Real-world physics applications abound. Volume 1 contains Chs. 1-18 of the main volume: One-Dimensional Kinematics; Vectors in Physics; Two-Dimensional Kinematics; Newton's Laws of Motion; Applications of Newton's Laws; Work and Kinetic Energy; Potential Energy and Conservative Forces; Linear Momentum and Collisions; Rotational Kinematics and Energy; Rotational Dynamics and Static Equilibrium; Gravity; Oscillations about Equilibrium; Waves and Sound; Fluids; Temperature and Heat; Phases and Phase Changes; The Laws of Thermodynamics. For anyone needing an introduction to, or refresher of, algebra-based physics.
