Just masterpiece. One person found this helpful. See both reviews. Most helpful customer reviews on site. Verified download. I used this book for college physics. What I like more about this particular edition is that every chapter opens with a particular topic of interest and throughout the chapter you learn the tools to solve it.

For example, on the chapter dealing with vectors, the opening problem was how an ant, after zig zagging all over can return home in a straight line. You then learn how to work with vectors and somewhere in the chapter you'll learn the answer of how ants do it.

This edition also goes beyond your typical college physics topics and dives into astrophysics and quantum physics. I liked the fact that it covers almost every area of physics I could want to work on, except for quantum mechanics. The coverage of special relativity was light.

There was one chapter out of dozens where the exercises seemed to be screwed up. The answers in the back of the book sometimes gave just a numerical value, and that was sometimes only given to one or two decimal places. While there is probably no one text in any scientific discipline that covers all the bases for that branch of science, "Fundamentals of Physics Extended" comes close for the study of physics.

Of course is does not go into the depth that a book on fluid dynamics or quantum mechanics would do for their respective disciplines, it does cover pretty much all subject areas well enough to make those more focused texts approachable while maintaining enough depth to be useful as both an undergraduate text and a reference text for professionals. There are two facets of the book that really stand out in my opinion. First, if you simply open the book to a random page, you will encounter either a blend of textual material, pictures and diagrams, or problems, lots of problems.

The instructive portion of the text looks more like a flashy High School physics text book rather than a dry but profound undergraduate text sort of like comparing Giancoli with an older Sears, Zemansky, and Young text. Don't let that distract you, the didactic text explanations are well thought out and focused. Additionally, text does assume that you can follow the math behind the physics and ties the theoretical concepts presented in the text with the necessary calculus based mathematics in lots of worked out examples.

The concepts are then reinforced with problem for the student to work out, lots of problem that range from the simple to the more complex.

If there is one weakness, it would be the lack of mathematical rigor. As mentioned, it is assumed that can follow and understand the math.

As a result, there are few areas were one can find a clear mathematical derivation from basic first principle relation to the more abstract expressions.

Consider for example the presentation of the Doppler Effect; we go from a verbal explanation of what is happening physically directly to the equation that you need to know to calculate the Doppler shift for any case moving or stationary, source or observer.

For some subjects, this is fine, but is may require a secondary text if a more robust derivation is required. I suppose that it is assumed that by the time you reach those concepts you should 'see' the derivations as a matter of common sense. Is this the standard physics text? Well perhaps not, but it comes close and is well worth the investment as either a reference text or a pedagogical text or both.

This text has earned a permanent spot on my shelves. The required text in my college physics class was extremely unclear, so I asked my professor what his favorite text was. He told me that in over 30 years of teaching physics at college he likes this one and the first edition of this text the best.

He calls it the bible of physics, and still turns to it to prepare for lectures. It is clear, concise, and derives everything. I, and my awesome professor, highly recommend this text as a suppliment to whatever unclear muddled up text your course requires. Hardcover Verified download.

Not a great textbook, but it does that job. I'd much more highly recommend Serway's college physics. This has some dumb examples and the problem solving algorithms are overly complicated.
