University Physics with Modern Physics- Sears, Zemansky’s – 12th Edition – Vol.1


This book is the of more than half a century of innovations in the teaching of . When he appeared he was regarded as a revolutionary among -based textbooks for his emphasis on the fundamental principles of physics and how to apply them.

 The success of “ physics” between generations of and educators around the world is testimony to the merits of this . In preparation for this eleventh edition we have improved and expanded “University Physics” with the purpose of emphasizing two key objectives: to help the acquire a conceptual understanding and to facilitate the acquisition of solid problem-solving skills.

 Problem-solving techniques have been broadened and enhanced using an innovative four-step approach that helps bridge the gap between solved examples and problem-solving tasks. Pedagogy has been enhanced with more visual chapter summaries and conceptual , as well as “Care” paragraphs that help to avoid common mistakes.
