Fundamentals of Physics, Extended 10th Edition
David Halliday, Robert Resnick, Jearl Walker
Fundamentals of Physics extended 10th Edition has been designed to hold your interest, teach you how to think critically and escalate your understanding of physics. Illustrations are used to help beginner students grasp key concepts. This textbook will also explain how to effectively read scientific material, reason through scientific questions and solve quantitative problems.
Fundamentals of Physics 10th Edition comes with WileyPLUS with Orion, which provides you with a personal learning experience that continuously adapts to meet your learning style. Orion gives you the tools to identify your strengths and weaknesses, thereby allowing you to use your study time more effectively. WileyPLUS also includes an online version of the textbook, and a comprehensive collection of practice tests that will help you ace your exams. In addition, you can access videos that demonstrate key concepts, giving perspective to the textbook content. By offering varied questions and instantaneous feedback to your answers, WileyPLUS makes every study session successful.
- The Flying Circus of Physics, written by Jearl Walker, is incorporated into sample problems, text examples and end-of-chapter problems providing interesting real-world physics.
- Sample problems demonstrate how problems can be solved with reasoned solutions.
- Checkpoints offer stopping points so students can check their understanding of a question.
Jearl Walker, professor of physics at Cleveland State University, received his BS in physics from MIT in 1967 and his PhD in physics from University of Maryland in 1973. He is both an active teacher, who understands the challenges faced in today’s classroom, and a world renowned communicator of science to the general public. Jearl was the first recipient of the Outstanding Teaching Award from Cleveland State’s College of Science based on his impressive contributions to science teaching over the last 30 years. The award has been aptly renamed the Jearl Walker Outstanding Teaching Award in recognition of his many achievements.
His book The Flying Circus of Physics was published by Wiley 30 years ago, has been translated into at least 10 languages, and is still being sold world wide. For 16 years he toured his Flying Circus talk throughout the U.S. and Canada, introducing such physics stunts as the bed-of-nails demonstration and the walking-on-hot-coals demonstration, inspiring countless physics teachers to attempt similar feats in their own classroom. These talks led to his PBS television show Kinetic Karnival which ran nationally for years and which earned Jearl an Emmy.
During his 13 years with Scientific American magazine, he wrote 152 articles for “The Amateur Scientist” section, which were translated into at least 9 languages world wide. His topics ranged from the physics of judo to the physics of béarnaise sauce and lemon meringue pies.
In 1990, Jearl took over the textbook Fundamentals of Physics from David Halliday and Robert Resnick, and has not had a full night’s sleep since. He has lost count of the number of times he has been on television and radio and interviewed for newspapers and magazines. However, he clearly remembers the 20 minutes he spent performing on the Johnny Carson show, where he stuck his fingers into molten lead.
