Richard Wolfson's Essential University Physics, Third Edition is a concise and progressive calculus-based physics textbook that offers clear writing, great problems, and relevant real-life applications in an affordable and streamlined text. Essential University Physics teaches sound problem-solving skills, emphasizes conceptual understanding, and makes connections to the real world. Features such as annotated figures and step-by-step problem-solving strategies help students master concepts and solve problems with confidence.
Essential University Physics is offered as two paperback volumes available together or for sale individually.
MasteringPhysics and Essential University Physics work together, creating a seamless learning suite that supports student learning before, during, and after class. You can ensure students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics™.
Emphasize conceptual understanding
NEW | Big Picture features begin each chapter, connecting past, present, and future content. Students will develop an understanding of the connections between different physics principles helping them to see how the overarching principles fit together.
NEW | Got It? questions present multiple-choice and ranking task problems in most sections to prompt students to check their understanding of key concepts as they read. "GOT IT?" questions have been revised for classroom response systems to inspire classroom discussion.
NEW | Increased numbers of both Conceptual Examples and worked examples help students understand how to work through the more difficult problems and concepts.
Every chapter includes applications exploring modern examples of physics in the real world.
NEW | More engineering applications prepare engineering students for the field.
NEW | The author has reorganized the text so that calculus examples and problems have been moved up earlier in the discussion, allowing students to tackle more challenging physics problems and instructors to introduce topics using either algebra or calculus.
Written with brevity and affordability in mind, Wolfson offers a concise and streamlined solution for students and instructors.

MasteringPhysics from Pearson is the leading online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results by engaging students before, during, and after class with powerful content. Instructors ensure students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics.
Students can further master concepts after class through traditional and adaptive homework assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback. The Mastering gradebook records scores for all automatically graded assignments in one place, while diagnostic tools give instructors access to rich data to assess student understanding and misconceptions.
Mastering brings learning full circle by continuously adapting to each student and making learning more personal than ever—before, during, and after class.
Interactive Pre-lecture videos address the rapidly growing movement toward pre-lecture teaching and flipped classrooms. These videos provide an introduction to key topics with embedded assessment to help students prepare before lecture and to help professors identify student misconceptions.
Learning Catalytics™ is an interactive, student response tool that uses students' smartphones, tablets, or laptops to engage them in more sophisticated tasks and thinking. Now included with Mastering with eText, Learning Catalytics enables you to generate classroom discussion, guide your lecture, and promote peer-to-peer learning with real-time analytics. Instructors, you can:
Tutorials featuring specific wrong-answer feedback, hints, and a wide variety of educationally effective content guide your students through the toughest topics in physics. The hallmark Hints and Feedback offer instruction similar to what students would experience in an office hour, allowing them to learn from their mistakes without being given the answer.
Chapter 7 is available for download as a sample chapter in PDF format. You'll need Acrobat Reader to view the chapter.
