How much additional material is in the extended version of Volume 2--how many additional chapters on what topics? Is it worth getting an extended edition copy for the additional modern physics material if one already has the non-extended version (and Young and Freedman 11E)?

I have the extended 3rd edition and the extended portion is pretty wimpy. I agree completely with jtbell: just get a modern physics book instead. My 3rd semester physics included some modern physics and we used an old edition of Tipler that I liked:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/0879010886/?tag=pfamazon01-20&tag=pfamazon01-20
It is dated, but can be found for cheap. Other folks probably know what books are better than Tipler.
