Physics, 11th Australia & New Zealand Edition

ISBN: 9781119561798

The eleventh edition of Cutnell and Johnson’s Physics provides students with the skills that they need to succeed in this course, by focusing on conceptual understanding; problem solving; and providing real-world applications and relevance. Conceptual Examples, Concepts and Calculations problems, and Check Your Understanding questions help students to understand physics principles. Math Skills boxes, multi-concept problems, and Examples with reasoning steps help students to improve their reasoning skills while solving problems. “The Physics Of” boxes show students how physics principles are relevant to their everyday lives.
WileyPLUS is available to accompany this edition and continues to build on rich multimedia enhancements that encourage student engagement. ORION, the adaptive study guide, diagnoses student’s strengths and weaknesses, leading them to the specific content and media needed to help them effectively learn. All ORION practice problems have hints and feedback. The course includes 259 short lecture videos, one for each course section, that explain the basic concepts and learning objectives. In addition, 150 Chalkboard problem-solving videos and guided online tutorials along with vector drawing questions enrich WileyPLUS. These features are designed to facilitate flipping the classroom, and to encourage students to remain within the WileyPLUS environment, as opposed to pursuing the “pay-for-solutions” websites and searching uncurated web content that short circuits and can confuse their learning process.


  • Lecture Videos: 259 short section lecture video animations present all concepts and learning objectives throughout each section in the course.
  • Chalkboard Videos: Short videos demonstrate practical problem-solving strategies step-by-step.
  • Math Help Videos
  • Physics Demonstration Videos with Assessment Questions
  • Physics Concept Simulations: 1 to 7 videos are included per course section with related assessment questions.
  • Problem-Solving Help Videos
