Summary

Clear presentation and sensible organization make it easy for students to learn systematically the basic physics principles. The text's emphasis on problem solving and development of analytical skills is reflected in unique illustrations of problem-solving techniques, worked examples, end-of-chapter problems, numerous estimation problems, and seven Interludes that teach specific analytical techniques.
