How Things Work provides an accessible introduction to physics for the non-science student. Like the previous editions it employs everyday objects, with which students are familiar, in case studies to explain the most essential physics concepts of day-to-day life. Lou Bloomfield takes seemingly highly complex devices and strips away the complexity to show how at their heart are simple physics ideas. Once these concepts are understood, they can be used to understand the behavior of many devices encountered in everyday life. The sixth edition uses the power of WileyPLUS Learning Space with Orion to give students the opportunity to actively practice the physics concepts presented in this edition.

"Physics is a remarkably practical science. Not only does it explain how things work or why they don't, it also offers great insight into how to create, improve, and repair those things. Because of that fundamental relationship between physics and real objects, introductory physics books are essentially users' manuals for the world in which we live. Like users' manuals, however, introductory physics books are most accessible when they're based on real-world examples. Both users' manuals and physics texts tend to go unread when they're written like reference works, organized by abstract technical issues, indifferent to relevance, and lacking in useful examples. For practical guidance, most readers turn to "how to" books and tutorials instead; they prefer the "case-study" approach. How Things Work is an introduction to physics and science that starts with whole objects and looks inside them to see what makes them work. It follows the case-study method, exploring physics concepts on a need-to-know basis in the context of everyday objects. More than just an academic volume, this book is intended to be interesting, relevant, and useful to non-science students. Most physics texts develop the principles of physics first and present real-life examples of these principles reluctantly if at all. That approach is abstract and inaccessible, providing few conceptual footholds for students as they struggle to understand unfamiliar principles. After all, the comforts of experience and intuition lie in the examples, not in the principles. While a methodical and logical development of scientific principles can be satisfying to the seasoned scientist, it's alien to someone who doesn't even recognize the language being used"--

A user’s manual for our everyday world! “Whether a curious layperson, a trained physicist, or a beginning physics student, most everyone will find this book an interesting and enlightening read and will go away comforted in that the world is not so strange and inexplicable after all.” ––From the Foreword by Carl Wieman, Nobel Laureate in Physics 2001, and CASE/Carnegie US University Professor of the Year 2004 If you didn’t know better, you might think the world was filled with magic––from the household appliances that make our lives easier to the CDs and DVDs that fill our world with sounds and images. Even a simple light bulb can seem mysterious when you stop to think about it. Now in How Everything Works, Louis Bloomfield explains the physics behind the ordinary objects and natural phenomena all around us, and unravels the mysteries of how things work. Inside, you’ll find easy-to-understand answers to scores of fascinating questions, including: How do microwave ovens cook food, and why does metal sometimes cause sparks in a microwave? How does an iPod use numbers to represent music? How do CDs and DVDs use light to convey information, and why are they so colorful? How can a CT or MRI image show a cross-sectional view of a person without actually entering the body? Why do golf balls have dimples? How does a pitcher make a curveball curve and knuckleball jitter about in an erratic manner? Why is the sun red at sunrise and sunset? How does a fluorescent lamp produce visible light? You don’t need a science or engineering background to understand How Everything Works, all you need is an active curiosity about the extraordinary world all around you.

Dr. Khan's classic textbook on radiation oncology physics is now in its thoroughly revised and updated Fourth Edition. It provides the entire radiation therapy team—radiation oncologists, medical physicists, dosimetrists, and radiation therapists—with a thorough understanding of the physics and practical clinical applications of advanced radiation therapy technologies, including 3D-CRT, stereotactic radiotherapy, HDR, IMRT, IGRT, and proton beam therapy. These technologies are discussed along with the physical concepts underlying treatment planning, treatment delivery, and dosimetry. This Fourth Edition includes brand-new chapters on image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) and proton beam therapy. Other chapters have been revised to incorporate the most recent developments in the field. This edition also features more than 100 full-color illustrations throughout. A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank.

The Physics of Everyday Phenomena, Sixth Edition, introduces students to the basic concepts of physics using examples of common occurrences. Intended for use in a one-semester or two-semester course in conceptual physics, this book is written in a narrative style, frequently using questions designed to draw the reader into a dialogue about the ideas of physics. This inclusive style allows the book to be used by anyone interested in exploring the nature of physics and explanations of everyday physical phenomena. Beginning students will benefit from the large number of student aids and the reduced math content. Professors will appreciate the organization of the material and the wealth of pedagogical tools.

The 6th Canadian edition of Jensen?s Interpreting Engineering Drawings is aimed at students in mechanical apprenticeship programs, including Machinists, Tool and Die Makers, and Industrial Millwrights ? who need to understand the basic ? and more complex ? concepts involved in technical drawings and the communication of technical information. Jensen is the only blueprint reading text on the market designed to provide customized drawing interpretation courses for each and every student. Designed to contain far more information than is normally required for any traditional program, this text provides the instructor with the opportunity of selecting units of instruction that would best suit the needs of the students in that particular area or industry. It provides the theory and practical application for individuals to develop the intellectual skills needed to communicate technical concepts used throughout the international marketplace. The first chapters cover the core concepts of blueprint reading from orthographic views to section views. The second and third sections include topics of different fields of mechanical drafting such as structural steel, welding, piping, and GDT. Jensen is the only text on the market that follows CSA standards.

Elegant, engaging, exacting, and concise, Giancoli's Physics: Principles with Applications, Seventh Edition, helps students view the world through eyes that know physics. Giancoli's text is a trusted classic, known for its elegant writing, clear presentation, and quality of content. Using concrete observations and experiences students can relate to, the text features an approach that reflects how science is actually practiced: it starts with the specifics, then moves to the great generalizations and the more formal aspects of a topic to show students why we believe what we believe. Written with the goal of giving students a thorough understanding of the basic concepts of physics in all its aspects, the text uses interesting applications to biology, medicine, architecture, and digital technology to show students how useful physics is in their own everyday lives and in their future professions.
