Download this PDF book: Fundamentals of Physics, 10th Edition, by David Halliday, Robert Resnick, Jearl Walker

The 10th edition of Halliday, Resnick and Walkers  Fundamentals of Physics provides the perfect solution  for teaching a 2 or 3 semester calculus-based physics course, providing  instructors with a tool by which they can teach students how to  effectively read scientific material, identify fundamental  concepts, reason through scientific questions, and solve  quantitative problems. 

The 10th edition builds upon previous editions by offering new features designed to better engage students and support critical thinking. 

These include NEW Video Illustrations that bring the subject matter to life, NEW Vector Drawing Questions that test students conceptual understanding, and additional multimedia resources (videos and  animations) that provide an alternative pathway through the  material for those who struggle with reading scientific  exposition. 

About the Author

David Halliday is associated with the University of Pittsburgh as Professor Emeritus. As department chair in 1960, he and Robert Resnick collaborated on Physics for Students of Science and Engineering and then on Fundamentals of Physics. 

Fundamentals is currently in its eighth edition and has since been handed over from Halliday and Resnick to Jearl Walker. Dr. Halliday is retired and resides in Seattle.

Robert Resnick is professor emeritus at Rensselaer and the former Edward P. Hamilton Distinguished Professor of Science Education, 1974-93. Together with his co-author David Halliday, he revolutionized physics education with their now famous textbook on general physics, still one of the most highly regarded texts in the field today.

Jearl Walker, professor of physics at Cleveland State University, received his BS in physics from MIT in 1967 and his PhD in physics from University of Maryland in 1973. 

His book The Flying Circus of Physics was published 30 years ago, has been translated into at least 10 languages, and is still being sold world wide. 

For 16 years he toured his Flying Circus talk throughout the U.S. and Canada, introducing such physics stunts as the bed-of-nails demonstration and the walking-on-hot-coals demonstration to countless physics teachers, who then proceeded to hurt themselves when they repeated the stunts in their own classrooms. 

These talks led to his PBS television show Kinetic Karnival which ran nationally for years and which earned an Emmy.

The front cover shows a simulation of the collisions of the lead-ion beams at CERN, as recorded by the detector ALICE. 

The collisions produce a plasma of quarks and gluons in a sizable volume, with a density greater than that in a neutron star and with a temperature 100 000 times that in the Sun's core. 

These conditions match those a few microseconds after the big bang beginning of the universe. 

In our normal low-energy world, quarks and gluons are always locked up inside the confines of particles such as protons and neutrons. 

However, in the high-energy collisions within ALICE, they undergo deconfinement to produce the plasma, which is a unique state of matter that acts like an ideal fluid with no viscosity. Such was the state of the universe just after the big bang.
