Focus on the fundamentals and help students see connections between problem types

Richard Wolfson’s Essential University Physics is a concise and progressive calculus-based physics textbook that offers clear writing, great problems, and relevant real-life applications in an affordable and streamlined text. The book teaches sound problem-solving strategies and emphasises conceptual understanding, using features such as annotated figures and step-by-step problem-solving strategies. Realising students have changed a great deal over time while the fundamentals of physics have changed very little, Wolfson makes physics relevant and alive for students by sharing the latest physics applications in a succinct and captivating style.

The 4th Edition, Global Edition, incorporates research from instructors, reviewers, and thousands of students to expand the book’s problem sets and consistent problem-solving strategy. A new problem type guides students to see patterns, make connections between problems that can be solved using similar steps, and apply those steps when working problems on homework and exams.

Volume 1 contains Chapters 1—19

Available for separate purchase is Volume 2 containing Chapters 20—39

New to this edition
  • Example Variation Problems build in difficulty by changing scenarios, changing the knowns vs. unknowns, and adding complexity and a step of reasoning to provide the most helpful range of related problems that use the same basic approach to find their solutions. These scaffolded problem sets help students see patterns and make connections between problems that can be solved using similar steps and help them to be less surprised by variations on problems when exam time comes. Assignable in Mastering Physics.
  • Learning Outcomes succinctly state goals for each chapter, identifying for students what they should be learning and aiding in metacognition.
  • Each end-of-chapter problem is correlated with one or more learning outcomes.
  • Learning Outcomes Table at the start of each end-of-chapter problem set relates problems and helps students target what they don’t know and prove what they do.
Also available with Mastering Physics
  • Quantitative Pre-lecture Videos now complement the conceptual Interactive Pre-lecture Videos designed to expose students to concepts before class and help them learn how problems for a specific concept are worked.
  • Direct Measurement Videos are short videos that show real situations of physical phenomena. Grids, rulers, and frame counters appear as overlays, helping students to make precise measurements of quantities such as position and time. Students then apply these quantities along with physics concepts to solve problems and answer questions about the motion of the objects in the video. The problems are assignable in Mastering and can be used to replace or supplement traditional word problems; they can also serve as open-ended questions to help develop problem-solving skills.
  • The Physics Primer relies on videos, hints, and feedback to refresh students’ math skills in the context of physics and prepares them for success in the course. These tutorials can be assigned before the course begins or throughout the course as just-in-time remediation. They ensure students practice and maintain their math skills, while tying together mathematical operations and physics analysis.
