With its time-tested problems, pioneering conceptual and visual pedagogy, and next-generation media package, the Eleventh Edition of Young and Freedman's University Physics is the classic physics textbook with an eye on the future. Using Young & Freedman's research-based ISEE (Identify, Set up, Execute, Evaluate) problem-solving strategy, students develop the physical intuition and problem-solving skills required to tackle the text's extensive high-quality problem sets that have been developed and refined over the past five decades. The completely redesigned, pedagogically consistent artwork and diagrams integrate seamlessly with the text to help students better visualize key concepts. The cornerstone of the media package, MasteringPhysicsaA A , provides a library of conceptual tutorials and rigorous multi-step problems that deliver immediate and individualized guidance to each student based on their wrong answers and difficulties and also powers a superior gradebook and student skill-diagnostics profiler.The result is a single, effective solution for assigning uncompromising quality online homework, giving each and every student help where and when they need it, and evaluating students on both an individual and class level.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Hugh D. Young is 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, Berkeley. Professor Young's career has centered entirely on undergraduate education. He has written several undergraduate-level textbooks, and in 1973 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 many years as Associate Organist at St. Paul's Cathedral in Pittsburgh, and has played numerous organ recitals in the Pittsburgh area. Professor 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. Professor 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, Professor Freedman teaches 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, Professor Freedman can be found either flying (he holds a commercial pilot's license) or driving with his wife, Caroline, in their 1955 Nash Metropolitan. 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.

The book has been Pearsonized in the sense that there are millions of problems in it that you will probably never do. However, this allows instructors to pick problems that match their pedagogy and allows students to have plenty of other practice problems. Also, the MasteringPhysics problems seemed to be easier than the textbook problems.
My first course in Mechanics was much easier than the second semester. The problems in the Electricity/Magnetism section can be very, very hard even if you are completely prepared. Sadistic professors may assign these problems without covering the necessary material in class. So make sure you have a kind and effective professor!
With that said, this book is entirely appropriate for self-study and for traditional courses. But be careful when you sign up for the second semester. Freshman math classes (college algebra through calculus III) can easily be covered in a short period of time by anyone who is mathematically sophisticated. It is not necessarily the same for natural sciences, and I learned this the hard way in Physics II by taking it in a 5-week summer session. Unless you are entirely confident, over-prepared, and already experienced with electronics in some way, please take my advice and complete this course in the long semester. The alternative is very stressful.
The writing is clear, and the typesetting is beautiful. You will want to keep it on your shelf if you intend to go further with physics.
Students: Buy an earlier version for around $50 and spend the $70 for the access card and save over $100
Although I liked the book for the most part, I felt it didn't emphasize optics very well. After reading through interference and diffraction, I really didn't feel like I understood interference and diffraction as well as, say, Gauss's Law or circuits. For the most part, optics seems to be covered very qualitatively and very light at that. There is also no coverage of Maxwell's Equations in differential form, Lorentz Transformations in in matrix form, or circuits in imaginary number form.
Overall, I enjoyed the book. I used it as my main learning material for my introductory physics courses and, after reading, I feel I was left with a good grasp of introductory physics, so I feel this book has served its purpose quite well. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn introductory physics.
