Now in its commemorative tenth edition, Sears and Zemansky's University Physics remains the classic text for today's students. Adhering to the highest standards of integrity and incorporating some of the findings of current research in physics education, the text enables students to develop physical intuition and build strong problem-solving skills. It also points out conceptual and computational pitfalls that commonly plague beginning physics students and provides them with explicit strategies for analyzing physical situations and solving problems. In addition, the text supplies a comprehensive range of high-quality problem sets developed and refined over the past five decades.
