A comprehensive introduction to calculus-based physics which presents balance between theory and applications, between concepts and problem-solving, between mathematics and physics, and finally, between technology and traditional pedagogical methods.

Maintains theoretical coverage, but supplements it with applications boxes, on topics such as: timed traffic lights, jet engines, simple machines, drag racing, flight navigator, cranes, quartz watches, smoke detectors, capacitors as power sources for laptop computers, television antennas, and fiber optics. Places emphasis on concepts, showing the motivation for the physics. This conceptual emphasis has been maintained, but supporting problem-solving apparatus has been dramatically revised. All mathematics in the book is self-contained, and major mathematical tools are introduced as needed. Vectors, a topic that requires a lot of practice, are covered in depth.

21. Properties of Solids.

22. Electric Charge.

23. Electric Field.

24. Gauss' Law.

25. Electric Potential.

26. Capacitors and Dielectrics.

27. Currents in Materials.

28. Direct-Current Circuits.

29. The Effects of Magnetic Fields.

30. The Production and Properties of Magnetic Fields.

31. Faraday's Law.

32. Magnetism and Matter.

33. Inductance and Circuit Oscillations.

34. Alternating Currents.

35. Maxwell's Equations and Electromagnetic Waves.

36. Light.

37. Mirrors and Lenses and their Uses.

38. Interference.

39. Diffraction.

40. Special Relativity.

41. Quantum Physics.

42. Quantization of Angular Momentum and of Energy Values.

43. Quantum Effects in Large Systems of Fermions and Bosons.

44. Quantum Engineering.

45. Nuclear Physics.

46. Particles and Cosmology.
