Physics – James S. Walker – 4th Edition

Description

Walker’s goal is to help readers make the connection between a conceptual understanding of and the various skills necessary to solve quantitative . The pedagogy and approach are based on over 20 years of teaching and reflect the results of education research.

Already one of the best-selling books in -based physics,The Fourth Edition strengthens both the conceptual and the tools for to make the even better suited to today’s readers.
