Physics for Scientists and Engineers – Raymond A. Serway – 5th Edition


Fifth edition of this text that exposes the fundamental concepts of physics for any course of the subject, this edition preserves the highly didactic exposition of the author, and incorporates in greater quantity the electronic resources to facilitate its handling, both by the teacher and the student; that is, a website with multiple didactic supports is now available.

The text is in full color, which helps the reader to better understand the material. In this first volume are grouped the first three parts: mechanics, mechanical waves and thermodynamics. Ideal for those just starting a first year of Physics. Serway is a book with a friendly language and easy to understand.
