    What's Inside

    Chabay problem image

    Students get plenty of practice with end-of-chapter problems.

    Available in WileyPLUS, every end-of-chapter problem from the text is available with algorithmic values to curb cheating as well as provide robust practice and assessment capabilities.

    Interactive online text helps drive student engagement.

    The full online text in WileyPLUS links individual problems back to the relevant chapter content.

    FEATURES INCLUDE

    • Discussion throughout the text contrasting iterative and analytical problem solutions
    • Many new computational modeling problems, large and small
    • More discussion throughout of the contrast between models of a system as a point particle and as an extended system
    • Improved discussion of the Momentum Principle throughout Volume 1
    • Enhanced treatment of polarization surface charge in electrostatics (Chapter 14) and circuits (Chapter 18) based on computational models
    • Extensive problem sets at the end of each chapter with improved indication of difficulty level
