Modern Physics for Scientists and Engineers - 2nd edition

Modern Physics for Scientists and Engineers (ISBN10: 0030060494; ISBN13: 9780030060496)
ISBN13: 978-0030060496
ISBN10: 0030060494

Summary: Featuring comprehensive, contemporary coverage with a strong emphasis on applications, this is a superior text for either the one- or two-semester modern physics course. The author's approach incorporates a flexible organization, numerous examples and problems (over 700), and cutting-edge topics such as superconductivity.

Strong, clearly written treatment of the "concepts" chapters (Chapters 1-9) has been universally praised by reviewers.
R> Unique "Special Topic" boxes containing up-to-date applications of interest to physicists and engineers show the relevance of modern physics to the real world and look more in depth at particularly engaging topics.

High-quality problems (25% new to this edition) and examples provide challenging opportunities for students to use the material they have learned.

A focus on the history of physics throughout the text places it in a human perspective and helps students understand how science develops.

Flexible organization of text gives instructors a choice in subject emphasis without compromising overall student learning.

"Hot" topics such as fusion, neutrino detection, and superconductivity reflect the thoroughly contemporary treatment.

The text has been shortened and the "applications" chapters (Chapters 10-16) have been streamlined so the text will be more appealing to the growing one-semester part of the market.

25% new end-of-chapter problems.

The authors have revised the text with a careful eye to consistency in level throughout.
