Physics the Easy Way 3RD Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Known for many years as Barron's Easy Way Series, the new editions of these popular self-teaching titles are now Barron's E-Z Series. Brand-new cover designs reflect all new page layouts, which feature extensive two-color treatment, a fresh, modern typeface, and more graphic material than ever-- charts, graphs, diagrams, instructive line illustrations, and where appropriate, amusing cartoons. Meanwhile, the quality of the books' contents remains at least as high as ever. Barron's E-Z books are self-help manuals focused to improve students' grades in a wide variety of academic and practical subjects. For most subjects, the level of difficulty ranges between high school and college-101 standards. Although primarily designed as self-teaching manuals, these books are also preferred by many teachers as classroom supplements--and for some courses, as main textbooks. E-Z books review their subjects in detail, and feature both short quizzes and longer tests with answers to help students gauge their learning progress. Subject heads and key phrases are set in a second color as an easy reference aid. Topics covered in Barron's E-Z Physics include motion, forces, energy, heat, wave motion, noise and music, electricity, magnetism, electromagnetic waves, the properties of light, and an introduction to nuclear physics.

Synopsis:

(back cover)

Physics makes sense when you approach it the E-Z way! Open this book for a clear, concise, step-by-step review of:

  • Motion
  • Forces
  • Energy
  • Heat
  • Wave motion
  • Magnetism and electricity
  • Properties of light
  • An introduction to nuclear physics

    Measure your progress as you learn physics:

  • Take the practice tests with answers in each chapter
  • Conclude with a full-length test that comes with all questions answered

    And discover that learning physics can be E-Z!

  • Synopsis:

    Here is an introduction to physics for high school students, college-101 courses, or students looking for a self-teaching introduction to this sometimes intimidating science. The author makes physics easier to comprehend by using ordinary language to explain concepts. Mathematical techniques, limited to elementary algebra, are introduced and used throughout to provide the necessary rigor and to give students the tools they need to solve problems. Topics introduced include motion, forces, machines, energy, heat, wave motion, noise and music, electricity, magnetism, electromagnetic waves, the properties of light, and an introduction to nuclear physics. This new edition can be used by prospective medical school students to help them prepare for many questions that appear in the MCAT. Material in the text that applies to the MCAT as well as material specific to college-level introductory physics is marked with an asterisk. Also new in this edition is a chapter on electronics, and expansions and updates on many physics topics, including special relativity.
