Building upon Serway and Jewett's solid foundation in the modern classic text, Physics for Scientists and Engineers, this first Australian and New Zealand edition of Physics is a practical and engaging introduction to Physics. Using international and local case studies and worked examples to add to the concise language and high quality artwork, this new regional edition further engages students and highlights the relevance of this discipline to their learning and lives. This adaptation retains the balanced approach of the strong foundation of physics with the modern standards of physics education of the original text and is further enhanced by the applied focus of real world case studies and examples, from the region and from the international community.
