For courses in College Physics.
Bringing the best of physics education research to a trusted and classic text.
For more than five decades, Sears and Zemansky's College Physics has provided the most reliable foundation of physics education for students around the world. New coauthors Phil Adams and Ray Chastain thoroughly revised the 10th Edition by incorporating the latest methods from educational research.
New features help students develop greater confidence in solving problems, deepen conceptual understanding, and strengthen quantitative-reasoning skills, while helping them connect what they learn with their other courses and the changing world around them. New media resources in MasteringPhysics create an unrivalled learning suite for students and instructors.
Mastering Physics is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Interactive, self-paced tutorials provide individualised coaching to help students stay on track. With a wide range of activities available, students can actively learn, understand, and retain even the most difficult concepts.
Mastering Physics is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor.
The duration of access to Mastering Physics is set by your instructor for your specific unit of study.
