Book Title: Douglas College Physics 1104 Custom Textbook – Winter and Summer 2020
Subtitle: Based on College Physics by Open Stax
Book Description: This is a custom edition for Practical Physics Physics 1104 at Douglas College. It has been modified from OpenStax College Physics.
This textbook has been customized for Physics 1104 at Douglas College. That course is intended for students who have not taken Physics previously or who have taken some secondary school Physics and want a review. The areas to be covered are mechanics (one and two dimensional motions; vectors; rotational motion; simple machines; work, energy, and power; momentum; equilibrium; Hooke’s law; collisions; circular motion; hydrostatics), heat (thermometry; heat transfer; thermal properties of matter), and electricity (electrostatics; direct current concepts and basic circuits).
This book is based on Open Stax’s College Physics. It is organized such that topics are introduced conceptually with a steady progression to precise definitions and analytical applications. The analytical aspect (problem solving) is tied back to the conceptual before moving on to another topic. Each introductory chapter, for example, opens with an engaging photograph relevant to the subject of the chapter and interesting applications that are easy for most students to visualize.
