Preface This Instructor’s Solutions Manual was written to accompany Physics 3rd Edition, by James S. Walker, published by Pearson Prentice Hall. It is the second of a two-volume set and contains complete solutions to all the end-of-chapter problems, as well as answers to the even-numbered conceptual questions and conceptual exercises, for Chapters 19–32. The answers to the odd-numbered conceptual questions and conceptual exercises can be found at the back of the textbook. At the end of this volume you can find comparison grids that tell you whether the questions and problems are new for the third edition, unchanged from the second edition, or modified from the second edition. Each problem number in this volume that is marked with a box is a problem whose full solution is also presented in the Student Study Guide with Selected Solutions, a resource that is available to the students. The third edition of the Instructor’s Solutions Manual is more than an update to the second edition, it is a complete reworking of the entire concept! Instead of simply providing the calculation and numerical answer to each end-of-chapter problem, the solution to every problem is presented in a format similar to the examples presented throughout the text. A Picture the Problem section describes the physical phenomenon or situation and presents a diagram whenever it is helpful for understanding or solving the problem. The Strategy section gives an overall approach to the solution and provides the student with guidance about the appropriate methodology to use when tackling such a problem. The Solution section is presented in a step-by-step, annotated, two-column format similar to the in-text examples, except some of the lines are consolidated to make the solution a little more compact in print. Finally, the Insight section provides answers to related “What if?” questions, points out an alternative solution method, provides a comparison of the result with other problems or with something familiar to the student, or makes a contextual comment that is interesting to the instructor and student alike. It is our sincere hope that the tremendous effort that was made to produce this Instructor’s Solutions Manual will provide a terrific resource to instructors and especially students, helping them learn how to think about physics instead of simply learning to choose the right formula and perform algebraic manipulations correctly. The solutions are designed to highlight the connection between conceptual understanding and problem-solving techniques. We, of course, would be delighted to hear feedback about how the new format has been helpful and equally interested to hear about ways in which the presentation of the solutions could be improved. We are very grateful for the professional and dedicated staff at Prentice Hall who have worked hard to help produce this manual. We thank James Walker and give him credit for the answers to all of the conceptual questions and conceptual exercises. Many thanks also go to Wouter Montfrooij, who provided a solution to every problem from the text, as well as the team of other faculty who together provided a second set of solutions: Robert W. Arts, Anand Batra, Thomas B. Cobb, Thor Garber, Jeff Loats, Lorin Matthews, David Procopio, Lawrence G. Rowan, and David Tamres.
