Summary

This 8th edition of Fundamentals of Physics includes hundreds of items about curious effects in the everyday world, written in the spirit of Jearl Walker's The Flying Circus of Physics. The original edition of The Flying Circus of Physics-in print for over 30 years in 10 languages-is a cult classic among physics students, physics instructors, and the general public.
Electronic links to the new 2nd Edition of The Flying Circus of Physics are available in the electronic version of 8th edition of Fundamentals of Physics that is part of WileyPlus, one of the online homework systems available with this book. WileyPlus also includes electronic versions of all the end-of-chapter problems in Fundamentals of Physics and the interactive tutorials (several hundred) and hints (several thousand) written by author Jearl Walker.
