College Physics 10th Edition

While physics can seem challenging, its true quality is the sheer simplicity of fundamental physical theories–theories and concepts that can enrich your view of the world around you. COLLEGE PHYSICS, Tenth Edition, provides a clear strategy for connecting those theories to a consistent problem-solving approach, carefully reinforcing this methodology throughout the text and connecting it to real-world examples. For students planning to take the MCAT exam, the text includes exclusive test prep and review tools to help them prepare.

This item is in digital format, not a physical book. It’s compatible with all devices. Instant delivery upon purchase.

About the Authors

Raymond A. Serway is Professor Emeritus at James Madison University. He earned his doctorate at the Illinois Institute of Technology. Among his accolades, he received an honorary doctorate degree from his alma mater, Utica College, the 1990 Madison Scholar Award at James Madison University (where he taught for 17 years), the 1977 Distinguished Teaching Award at Clarkson University, and the 1985 Alumni Achievement Award from Utica College. As a Guest Scientist at the IBM Research Laboratory in Zurich, Switzerland, Dr. Serway worked with K. Alex M’ller, who shared the 1987 Nobel Prize in Physics. He also was a visiting scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, where he collaborated with his mentor and friend, the late Sam Marshall. In addition to this text, Dr. Serway is the co-author of COLLEGE PHYSICS, Eleventh Edition; PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS, Fifth Edition; ESSENTIALS OF COLLEGE PHYSICS; MODERN PHYSICS, Third Edition; and the high school textbook PHYSICS, published by Holt McDougal. He has published more than 40 research papers in the field of condensed matter physics and has given more than 60 presentations at professional meetings.

Chris Vuille (Ph.D., University of Florida) is an associate professor of physics at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the world’s premier institution for aviation higher education. While he has taught courses at all levels, including postgraduate, his primary interest is the teaching of introductory physics courses. He conducts research in general relativity, astrophysics, cosmology, and quantum theory and was a participant in a special three-year NASA grant program where he studied the properties of neutron stars. His work has appeared in many scientific journals and in ANALOG SCIENCE FICTION/SCIENCE FACT magazine. He is the co-author of COLLEGE PHYSICS, Eleventh Edition, and ESSENTIALS OF COLLEGE PHYSICS.

Reviews about the ebook:

  • John:
    It is the full version! Needed it for my physics 1 course and can use it for my physics 2. There is also a divided volume 1 and volume 2, but this one includes both.
  • Erickson:
    For my current purposes, it’s done. This book is meant to teach physics at the beginner level without invoking calculus. Thinking back, now that I am a teaching assistant, this book (and the other version with calculus) is actually excellent (though unfortunately too thick but that’s unavoidable). It contains everything basic one ever needs to know about physics and the physical world: mechanics, electricity, magnetism, thermodynamics, you name it. And I think sometimes, maybe it’s because I am not a very good physics student, I still learn new things from such an elementary text even though I am now a graduate student in physics
  • Emad:
    A lot of information bought it for school. The ebook version is very clear and worth the purchase.
  • James Lyon:
    I actually thought this was a big improvement compared to Serway’s books without Vuille. They finally put oscillatory motion and waves next to each other, and made numerous other improvements, especially in the presentation of electricity and magnetism.
  • Prowler:
    Son used this book in his college class and it was a current version and fine for his use.
  • Joe Cole:
    This is one of the main useful textbooks for college physics courses. Good for my physics study.
  • Jason:
    Needed for school but a great deal!
  • Gregory rated:
    There are a few chapters I did not read because we were not covering them in class. Overall a pretty good book. I like that while this is algebra-based he still has high exceptions for the reader.
  • Alice Blanco:
    The book was in excellent condition. Great price.
  • Joshua:
    Great book, a lot of diverse practice problems.
