University Physics Volume 1: OpenStax [College]
University Physics is a three volume collection that meets the scope and sequence requirements for the two-three semester calculus based courses. Volume 1 covers mechanics, sound, oscillations, and waves. Volume 2 covers themodynamics, electricity, and magnetism, and Volume 3 covers optics and modern physics. This textbook emphasizes connections between theory and application, making physics concepts interesting and accessible to students, while maintaining the mathematical rigor inherent in the subject. Frequent, strong examples focus on how to approach a problem, how to work with the equations, and how to check and generalize the result.
