Introduction to Physics

Details

Cutnell and Johnson has been the Number one text in the algebra-based physics market for over 20 years. Over 250,000 students have used the book as the equipment they need to build their problem-solving confidence, push their limits, and be successful. The tenth edition continues to offer material to help the development of conceptual understanding and show the relevance of physics to readers lives and future careers. Helps the reader to first identify the physics concepts, then associate the appropriate mathematical equations, and finally to work out an algebraic solution
