# Schaum's Outline of Physics for Engineering and Science, Third Edition

by: Michael Browne

**Abstract:**More than 40 million students have trusted Schaum's to help them succeed in the classroom and on exams. Schaum's is the key to faster learning and higher grades in every subject. Each Outline presents all the essential course information in an easy-to-follow, topic-by-topic format. You also get hundreds of examples, solved problems, and practice exercises to test your skills. This Schaum's Outline gives you: 788 fully solved problems; succinct review of physics topics such as motion, energy, fluids, waves, heat, and magnetic fields; and support for all the major textbooks for physics for engineering and science courses.
