New Physics Applied side notes highlight in-text applications to such areas as medicine, physiology, sports, and technology. The fifth edition continues the Giancoli tradition of strong biological applications. PROBLEM-SOLVING GUIDANCE The accessible presentation and pedagogical tools in the Fifth Edition continue to reinforce students' basic problem-solving skills.
