Fundamentals of Physics, 11th Australia & New Zealand Edition

ISBN: 9781119561774

The eleventh edition of Halliday’s Fundamentals of Physics builds upon previous issues by offering several new features and additions.  This new edition offers the most accurate, extensive and varied set of assessment questions of any course management program. To assist with these assessment questions, the quizzes contain question assistance including answer-specific feedback to help facilitate success.

The text also offers multimedia presentations  (videos and animations) of much of the material, providing an alternative pathway through the material for those who struggle with reading scientific exposition. Furthermore, the book includes math review content in both a self-study module (for more in-depth review) and also in Just-In-Time math videos (for a quick refresher on specific topics).

The Halliday content is widely accepted as clear, correct, and complete. The end-of-chapters problems are without peer. The eleventh edition also features The Flying Circus of Physics, written by Jearl Walker, and is incorporated into sample problems, text examples and end-of-chapter problems providing interesting real-world physics.


  • 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.
