About this app

University Physics is a three-volume collection that meets the scope and sequence requirements for two- and three-semester calculus-based physics courses.
Volume 1 covers mechanics, sound, oscillations, and waves.
Volume 2 covers thermodynamics, electricity and magnetism, and
Volume 3 covers optics and modern physics.
This textbook emphasizes connections between theory and application, making physics concepts interesting and accessible to students while maintaining the mathematical rigor inherent in the subject.
Frequent, strong examples focus on how to approach a problem, how to work with the equations, and how to check and generalize the result.

* Complete Textbook by OpenStax
* Multiple Choices Questions (MCQ)
* Essay Questions Flash Cards
* Key-Terms Flash Cards
