Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Paul G. Hewitt, author of the market-leading Conceptual Physics, comes his eagerly awaited new, briefer, alternative text, Conceptual Physics Fundamentals. The text extends best-selling author Paul Hewitt’s proven pedagogical approach, straight-forward learning features, approachable style, and rigorous coverage, while providing superior supplements and media. The book develops a solid conceptual understanding of physics, while building readers' self-confidence applying their understanding quantitatively. About Science, Equilibrium and Linear Motion, Newton’s Laws of Motion, Momentum and Energy, Gravity, Projectiles, and Satellites, Fluid Mechanics, Temperature, Heat, and Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer and Change of Phase, Electrostatics and Electric Current, Magnetism and Electromagnetic Induction, Waves and Sound, Light waves, Properties of Light, Atoms, Quantum Theory, The Atomic Nucleus and Radioactivity. For all readers interested in conceptual physics.

About the Author

Paul Hewitt pioneered the conceptual approach to teaching at City College of San Francisco, with guest spots at the University of California at both the Berkeley and Santa Cruz campuses, and the University of Hawaii at both the Manoa and Hilo campuses. He also taught his physics course for 20 years at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, which honored him with its Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000. His books are translated in 12 languages and used worldwide.
