About the Author

Hugh D. Young is Emeritus Professor of Physics at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. He attended Carnegie Mellon for both undergraduate and graduate study and earned his Ph.D. in fundamental particle theory under the direction of the late Richard Cutkosky. He joined the faculty of Carnegie Mellon in 1956 and has also spent two years as a Visiting Professor at the University of California at Berkeley.

 

Professor Young’s career has centered entirely on undergraduate education. He has written several undergraduate-level textbooks, and in 1973 he became a co-author with Francis Sears and Mark Zemansky for their well-known introductory texts. With their deaths, he assumed full responsibility for new editions of these books until joined by Prof. Freedman for University Physics.

 

Professor Young is an enthusiastic skier, climber, and hiker. He also served for several years as Associate Organist at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Pittsburgh, and has played numerous organ recitals in the Pittsburgh area. Prof. Young and his wife Alice usually travel extensively in the summer, especially in Europe and in the desert canyon country of southern Utah.

 

Roger A. Freedman is a Lecturer in Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Dr. Freedman was an undergraduate at the University of California campuses in San Diego and Los Angeles, and did his doctoral research in nuclear theory at Stanford University under the direction of Professor J. Dirk Walecka. He came to UCSB in 1981 after three years teaching and doing research at the University of Washington.

 

At UCSB, Dr. Freedman has taught in both the Department of Physics and the College of Creative Studies, a branch of the university intended for highly gifted and motivated undergraduates. He has published research in nuclear physics, elementary particle physics, and laser physics. In recent years, he has helped to develop computer-based tools for learning introductory physics and astronomy. When not in the classroom or slaving over a computer, Dr. Freedman can be found either flying (he holds a commercial pilot’s license) or driving with his wife, Caroline, in their 1960 Nash Metropolitan convertible.

 

A. Lewis Ford is Professor of Physics at Texas A&M University. He received a B.A. from Rice University in 1968 and a Ph.D. in chemical physics from the University of Texas at Austin in 1972. After a one-year postdoc at Harvard University, he joined the Texas A&M physics faculty in 1973 and has been there ever since. Professor Ford’s research area is theoretical atomic physics, with a specialization in atomic collisions. At Texas A&M he has taught a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses, but primarily introductory physics.

This is a great book for most university students studying engineering / calculus based physics.

One thing to be aware of is this is only volume 2, and will only contain certain chapters 21- 37 which primarily focuses on ELECTRICITY & MAGNETISM. This would be suitable for the second series of physics as the courses usually go : Mechanics, Electricity & Magnetism , Thermodynamics & Optics.

Very detailed with lots of pictures, problems, examples, and a nice summary at the end.

My book was mis-bound and I am missing all of chapter 23! The book literally skips 35 pages. As a premed student in an intensive physics class, I am extremely disappointed in this oversight and even more upset that I discovered this past the date for a refund.

Just like the first volume, this book is fantastic. It always has enough examples, and it's as if the authors really really tried to write this in a way students can understand it. I just wish I could find a hardcover version of this book

This book is for the electricity and magnetism portion of physics. The way concepts are explained is very helpful; however, the examples in this book are only reasonably helpful. Some of the problems that are given at the end of the chapter are super difficult and the caliber of questioning from within the chapter (the examples) to post-chapter (problems at the end of the chapter) is a wide range. While the examples will help you with the more easier problems, when you get to the more difficult problems you might find yourself stuck and not knowing what to do. That's just me though. I didn't consult the book as often as I should have so some concepts I know super well while others, it's fuzzier. Overall, this book is a helpful tool to have beyond just teacher's lectures. This book explains the concepts well and if you can understand the concepts then you should be golden.

I chose this rating because the book came in a very good condition.
I liked it.
I would suggest this book for any one who wishes to buy University Physics Volume 2. I suggested it to one of my friends already.

I think the only usefulness I found with this text was in the equations summary and the end of chapter questions for review. My professor explained the material much clearer than this text. I would recommend staying awake and attending class if this text is assigned.

The book looks brand new. It is exactly what I expected to get when I placed my order. It was packaged in protective cardboard as well.
