# University Physics

## Description

University Physics is designed for the two- or three-semester calculus-based physics course. The text has been developed to meet the scope and sequence of most university physics courses and provides a foundation for a career in mathematics, science, or engineering. The app provides an important opportunity for students to learn the core concepts of physics and understand how those concepts apply to their lives and to the world around them.

Unit 1: Mechanics- Units and Measurement- Vectors- Motion Along a Straight Line- Motion in Two and Three Dimensions- Newton’s Laws of Motion- Applications of Newton’s Laws- Work and Kinetic Energy- Potential Energy and Conservation of Energy- Linear Momentum and Collisions- Fixed-Axis Rotation- Angular Momentum- Static Equilibrium and Elasticity- Gravitation- Fluid Mechanics

Unit 2: Waves and Acoustics- Oscillations- Waves- Sound

Unit 3: Thermodynamics- Temperature and Heat- The Kinetic Theory of Gases- The First Law of Thermodynamics- The Second Law of Thermodynamics

Unit 4: Electricity and Magnetism- Electric Charges and Fields- Gauss’s Law- Electric Potential- Capacitance- Current and Resistance- Direct-Current Circuits- Magnetic Forces and Fields- Sources of Magnetic Fields- Electromagnetic Induction- Inductance- Alternating-Current Circuits- Electromagnetic Waves

Unit 5: Optics- The Nature of Light- Geometric Optics and Image Formation- Interference- Diffraction

Unit 6: Modern Physics- Relativity- Photons and Matter Waves- Quantum Mechanics- Atomic Structure- Condensed Matter Physics- Nuclear Physics- Particle Physics and Cosmology
