University Physics Vol.1 – Sears, Zemansky’s – 11th Edition


This book is the product of more than half a century of innovation in the teaching of physics. The success of university physics among generations of students and educators around the world is testimony to the merits of their approach: an emphasis on the fundamental principles of physics and how to apply them. This eleventh edition emphasizes two key objectives: to help the student acquire a conceptual understanding and to facilitate the acquisition of solid problem-solving skills.
