"College Physics, Volume 2, 2/e, International Edition" motivates student understanding by emphasizing the relationship between major physics principles, and how to apply the reasoning of physics to real-world examples. Such examples come naturally from the life sciences, and this text ensures that students develop a strong understanding of how the concepts relate to each other and to the real world. "College Physics, Volume 2, 2/e, International Edition" motivates student learning with its use of these original applications drawn from the life sciences and familiar everyday scenarios, and prepares students for the rigors of the course with a consistent five-step problem-solving approach. Available with this Second Edition, the new Enhanced WebAssign program features all the quantitative end-of-chapter problems and a rich collection of "Reasoning and Relationships" tutorials, personally adapted for WebAssign by Nick Giordano. This provides exceptional continuity for your students whether they choose to study with the printed text or by completing online homework.
