Books a la Carte are unbound, three-hole-punch versions of the textbook. This lower cost option is easy to transport and comes with same access code or media that would be packaged with the bound book.
As the most widely adopted new physics text in more than 50 years, Knight'sPhysics for Scientists and Engineers was published to widespread critical acclaim from professors and students. In theThird Edition, Knight builds on the research-proven instructional techniques he introduced in the first and second editions, as well as national data of student performance, to take student learning even further. Knight's unparalleled insight into student learning difficulties, and his impeccably skillful crafting of text and figures at every level - from macro to micro - to address these difficulties, results in a uniquely effective and accessible book, leading you to a deeper and better-connected understanding of the concepts and more proficient problem-solving skills.
For the Third Edition, Knight continues to apply the best results from educational research, and to refine and tailor them for this course. New pedagogical features (Chapter Previews, Challenge Examples, and Data-based Examples), end-of-chapter problem sets enhanced through analysis of national student metadata, fine-tuned and streamlined content, and an even more robust MasteringPhysicsÂ® program take the hallmarks of the previous editions- exceptionally effective conceptual explanation and problem-solving instruction- to a new level.

Books a la Carte for Physics for Scientists & Engineers: A Strategic Approach with Modern Physics, Third Edition
The University of Florida has an ambitious goal: to harness the power of its faculty, staff, students, and alumni to solve some of society s most pressing problems and to become a resource for the state of Florida, the nation, and the world. Hurricanes and tornadoes and the devastation they leave in their wake are feared across the globe, but at the University of Florida these natural phenomena are a fascinating research opportunity. At UF s Engineering School of Sustainable Infrastructure and Environment, wind engineers like Forrest Masters and David Prevatt study storm systems and design buildings to better withstand the forces of nature. Follow their stories as they venture inside Hurricane Wilma with wind gauges, travel to Joplin, Missouri to assess the wind-damage from the most powerful tornado in more than a half century, and conduct experiments with the lab s infamous Multi-Axis Wind Load Simulator, ominously nicknamed The Judge. Yet the job of the UF wind engineers does not end there. They take their findings to the drafting table, build roofs and walls, and test shingles, shutters, and garage doors. Their goal: to make sure our houses are still standing, and we are safe, after the storm. The stories chronicled in GATORBYTES span all colleges and units across the UF campus. They detail the far-reaching impact of UF s research, technologies, and innovations and the UF faculty members dedicated to them. Gatorbytes describe how UF is continuing to build on its strengths and extend the reach of its efforts so that it can help even more people in even more places.

A clear, concise discussion of today's hottest topics in climate change, including adapting to climate change and geo-engineering to mitigate the effects of change, Engineering Response to Climate Change, Second Edition takes on the tough questions of what to do and offers real solutions to the practical problems caused by radical changes in the Earth's climate. From energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions reduction, to climate-altering technologies, this new edition explores the latest concerns such as acidification of the ocean, energy efficiency, transportation, space solar power, and future and emerging possibilities.
The editors set the stage by discussing the separate issues of the emissions of radiatively important atmospheric constituents, energy demand, energy supply, agriculture, water resources, coastal hazards, adaption strategies, and geo-engineering. They explain the difference between the natural and human drivers of climate change and describe how humans have influenced the global climate during past decades. Each chapter concludes with discussion questions, calculations, and possible research topics.
See What's in the Second Edition:
So much has changed in the 15 years since the publication of the first edition, that this is, in effect, a completely new book. However, the general theme is the same: the climate energy problem has become largely an engineering problem. With this in mind, the book explores what engineers can do to prevent, mitigate, or adapt to climate change.
First published in 1994. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
In clear, easy-to-grasp language, the author covers many of the topics that you will need to know in order to win your dream job and be the first in line for a promotion.
