Summary: Well-known and respected for its clear writing style and emphasis on fundamentals, An Introduction to Physical Science is a survey of the physical sciences physics, chemistry, astronomy, meteorology, and geology for non-science majors. This text gives instructors the flexibility to teach from approaches that range from highly descriptive to highly quantitative. In an effort to make material more accessible to students, the authors h
ave simplified math coverage for the Ninth Edition by carefully introducing each concept in three steps: 1) each concept is briefly defined 2) the definition is presented as an equation in word form, 3) the concept is expressed in symbol notation.
  • New! Important material from Chapter 14, Moles, Solutions, and Gases, and Chapter 22, Isostasy and Diastrophism, has been integrated in other chapters. Overall text length has been reduced, making it more manageable for instructors and students.
  • New! Spotlight On feature uses figures, photos, or flowcharts to visually summarize a section or chapter.
  • New! Applying Your Knowledge questions, at the end of each chapter, tap into the practical applications of material.
  • New! Chapter 1, Measurements, and Chapter 3, Force and Motion, have been reorganized in response to user feedback.
  • New! Meteorology is now covered before geology, following the sequence of most physical science courses. The four geology chapters have been completely updated and reorganized.
  • New! A web site for students and instructors has been developed by the text authors and Clyde D. Baker (Ohio University). For each chapter, students can access study goals, discussions of each text section, sample solved problems, solved paired exercises, and online quizzes. Instructor support includes teaching tips for the classroom and laboratory, a list of potential in-class demonstrations, and answers to all end-of-chapter material. Additionally, a comprehensive list of teaching aides is included.
