    i couldn't find anything about the authors or the name of this text, has anybody seen this book before? If you did, could you please tell me it's name?

    PS: Sorry, this is the best i could do, only 4 pages...from chapter 1. THEY don't even have a table of contents...


    THANKS

    Since the doc is still pending approval and we can;t see it, it may be helpful if you could find an ISBN on the text (if it was printed).

    I think it's Serway/Jewett: Physics for Scientists and Engineers, have a look at thomsonedu.
    However: I'm not sure. As neither the publishers nor amazon let you have a glimpse at it online, you'll need to visit a bookstore or your local library.

    If he knew the ISBN, would he need to be asking anyone what the book was?:confused:

    I think it's Resnick and Halliday+the new author. I disticntly remember reading Lord Kelvin's quote, although it was an edition from the 60s, and that particular section started with a story about him.

    Its Definitely Serway and Beichner 5th edition or 6th. I have the 5th and its exactly the same as the pages you provided.

    Oh really?? thank you every much, i read a few pages of this book, and i found to be very interesting and easier to understand. Our book is the first eddition of fundamentals of physics made in 1986...so old, and confusing.

    PS: I think the mean reason i like the other text better is that for some reason it has the similar material as our text, expect explained better. LOL.

    Thanks

    Well as far as serway is concerned for an introductory physics book its very very good. There are over 40 chapters about 1500 pages and the hardback only cost me 35 pounds brand new. To me that is value for money. especially considering I've paid for paperback texts with only 200 pages for the same price!

    Hey. You never know. There are a lot of people out there that have no idea how to use a search engine.
