Physics is all around us. From taking a walk to driving your car, from microscopic processes to the enormity of space, and in the everchanging technology of our modern world, we encounter physics daily. As physics is a subject we are constantly immersed in and is used to forge tomorrow's most exciting discoveries, our goal is to remove the intimidation factor of physics and replace it with a sense of curiosity and wonder. Physics for Scientists and Engineers takes this approach using inspirational examples and applications to bring physics to life in the most relevant and real ways for its students. The text is written with Canadian students and instructors in mind and is informed by Physics Education Research (PER) with international context and examples. Physics for Scientists and Engineers gives students unparalleled practice opportunities and digital support to foster student comprehension and success.
Robert Hawkes is a Professor of Physics at Mount Allison University.
