For one-semester courses in Physics for technology students.This innovative introduction to physics for electronics technology offers unique single-volume coverage of both electronics and physics and makes clear the relevance of physics to a career in electronics. It replaces lengthy derivations and theoretical discussions on physics with practical applications of physics students will actually encounter in industry-and it relates all physics concepts to devices students already know (e.g., speedometer, thermometer, weight scale, etc.).show more

Back cover copy

"Physics for Technology with Applications in Industrial Control Electronics " provides an introduction to physics using applications from various technology-related disciplines. It includes coverage of linear and rotational motion; energy, work, and power; heat and temperature; fluids; waves; and magnetism. Illustrations are used as an integral part of the text to support the written information and to make it easier for students to visualize and understand the concepts. Practical examples of physics in industry, especially in the field of electronics, help to reinforce and apply the concepts presented in the text. Other features of this text include Worked examples of important formulas Application problems and questions at the end of each chapter A review of trigonometry A built-in laboratory section on perforated pages for easy removal and use in a lab settingshow more
