The text is grounded in real-world examples to help students grasp fundamental physics concepts. It requires knowledge of algebra and some trigonometry, but not calculus. The text includes learning objectives, concept questions, links to labs and simulations, and ample practice opportunities for traditional physics application problems.
University Physics is a three-volume collection that meets the scope and sequence requirements for two- and three-semester calculus-based physics courses.
Volume 1 covers mechanics, sound, oscillations, and waves.
This textbook emphasizes connections between theory and application, while maintaining the mathematical rigor inherent in the subject. Frequent, strong examples focus on how to approach a problem, how to work with the equations, and how to check and generalize the result.
This is a basic introduction to the current physical understanding of our universe, from an examination of basic principles of physical law, their application to the behavior of objects, and the use of the scientific method in driving advances in this knowledge.
This is an examination of waves and oscillations in extended objects, sources and laws that govern static electricity and magnetism, Maxwell's equations, optics, and Einstein's theory of special relativity.
by making lasting contributions at the forefront of human understanding, and by communicating the excitement of scientific discovery to our fellow citizens. Physics is a part of the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA), the heart of the University of Michigan, and an extraordinary center of creativity, inquiry, and discovery. Combining the best of a research institution and a liberal arts college, students and faculty in more than 70 departments and programs explore the world's biggest questions together.
