Textbooks for Physics 49, 50, 51, 52
All instructors of Physics 49, 50, 51 and 52 use University Physics, 14th edition, by Young and Freedman, published by Pearson. All sections also use the online homework system MasteringPhysics.
To minimize costs and confusion, we arranged for custom-made SJSU volumes that contain only the chapters used in each individual course. (Physics 49 uses the same text as 50.)
These custom copies of the text are available at the Spartan Bookstore and are also available online. If you buy these editions new through the bookstore, they will also contain one semester of access to MasteringPhysics. If you buy the book used, you will have to pay for access to MasteringPhysics. Check before you buy the used book that you're actually saving any money.
If you choose to use the "big book" that contains all 44 chapters of University Physics, or the full e-text, you will also need to access MasteringPhysics at masteringphysics.com. If you are planning to buy a used version of the book, or an older edition, or share with someone, or have other plans, please keep in mind that you will still need to sign up for MasteringPhysics.
We will put several copies of the book on reserve at the library. They will be available to take out for two hours at a time.
