Details: Product Description This text is an unbound, binder-ready edition. The 10th edition of Halliday's Fundamentals of Physics building upon previous issues by offering several new features and additions.  Examples include a new print component will revised to conform to  the Version 5 design; chapter sections organized and numbered to  match the Concept Modules; Learning Objectives have been added;  illustrations changed to reflect (and advertise) multimedia  versions available in WileyPLUS; and new problems provide a means  of assigning the multimedia assets.  The new edition offers most accurate, extensive and varied set of assessment questions of any course management program in addition to all questions including some form of question assistance including answer specific feedback to facilitate success. The text also offers multimedia presentations (videos and animations) of much of the material that provide an alternative pathway through the material for those who struggle with reading scientific exposition. The Halliday content is widely accepted as clear, correct, and complete. The end-of-chapters problems are without peer. The new design, which was introduced in 9e continues with 10e, making this new edition of Halliday the most accessible and reader-friendly book on the market.  WileyPLUS sold separately from the text. From the Inside Flap LESS EXPENSIVE … MORE CONVENIENT! Save money—compare with new/used! Carry only what you need Keep everything in one place EXTENDED The front cover shows a simulation of the collisions of the lead-ion beams at CERN, as recorded by the detector ALICE. The collisions produce a plasma of quarks and gluons in a sizable volume, with a density greater than that in a neutron star and with a temperature 100 000 times that in the Sun's core. These conditions match those a few microseconds after the big bang beginning of the universe. In our normal low-energy world, quarks and gluons are always locked up inside the confines of particles such as protons and neutrons. However, in the high-energy collisions within ALICE, they undergo deconfinement to produce the plasma, which is a unique state of matter that acts like an ideal fluid with no viscosity. Such was the state of the universe just after the big bang. From the Back Cover LESS EXPENSIVE … MORE CONVENIENT! Save money―compare with new/used!

About the Author David Halliday was an American physicist known for his physics textbooks, Physics and Fundamentals of Physics, which he wrote with Robert Resnick. Both textbooks have been in continuous use since 1960 and are available in more than 47 languages. Robert Resnick was a physics educator and author of physics textbooks. He was born in Baltimore, Maryland on January 11, 1923 and graduated from the Baltimore City College high school in 1939. He received his B.A. in 1943 and his Ph.D. in 1949, both in physics from Johns Hopkins University.
