||The Physical Sciences
by Hazen/Trefil. By studying science, students become prepared to understand and deal with the changing world, both on the job and at home. But there’s more to science than this. The scientifically literate student will be poised to share in the excitement of the scientific discoveries that, week by week, transform our understanding of the universe and our place in it. Science opens up astonishing, unimagined worlds-bizarre life forms in the deep oceans, exploding stars in deep space, and aspects of the history of life and the universe more wondrous than any fiction. Dinosaurs, black holes, superconductors, mass extinctions, buckeyballs, space travel, and much more await the informed science reader. With this book as an introduction, every student can share in the greatest ongoing adventure of the human race-the adventure of science. 672 pages. P915.30 - paperbound. John Wiley & Sons, 1996. ISBN# 0-471-00249-6
|Fundamentals of Physics|
by Halliday/Resnick/Walker. The book not only tell students how physics works, the book show and give the students the opportunity to see what they have learned by testing their understanding of the concepts and applying them to real-world scenarios. Concept checkpoints, problem solving tactics, sample problems, electronic computations, exercises and problems-all of these skill-building signposts have been developed to help students establish a connection between conceptual theories and application. Each chapter has been scrutinized to ensure clarity and accuracy, reflecting the needs of today’s science and engineering students. 984 pages. John Wiley & Sons, Inc. P1250 - hardbound. ISBN #0-471-10558-9.
|Physics for Scientist and Engineers
by Raymond A. Sherway. The book have been used successfully at over 700 colleges and universities over the course of three editions. In this fourth edition, a major effort was made to improve clarity of presentation, precision of languange, and accuracy throughout. Based on comments from users of the third edition and reviewers’ suggestions, refinements have been added such as an increased emphasis on teaching concepts. The main objectives of this book are to provide the student with a clear and logical presentation of the basic concepts and principles of physics and to strengthen an understanding of the cocepts and principles through a broad range of interesting applications to the real world. 1442 pages. P1040 - hardbound. Saunders College Publishing, 1996. ISBN 0-03-015654-8.
