As I understand it, the one option is the physical book plus a coupon for the iClicker. Or you can get the eBook -- but your access to it runs out after the semester. If you choose the eBook or get the textbook elsewhere, you need to get an iClicker. If you already have an iClicker, you can use that.

Physics for Scientists and Engineers by Serway & Jewitt, WMU 8th edition, Volume 1. ISBN-10: 1-111-07042-3 , ISBN-13: 978-1-111-07042-7

*NOTE: If you cannot get a copy of the WMU Volume 1, you should be able to
use the regular 8th ed.*

NOTE: After using these files for some ten years, it has just been
pointed out to me that 2c and 2d above have answers which don't match the
questions. 2c should be taking a derivative (not an integral) and
have an answer like: ± = 0 + 7.00 rad/sec² + (21.00
rad/sec)^{4}(t)², evaluated for t = 1.23 sec. I don't have
time to run the numbers for 2d. 2e is a mess. We must've had some
manual corrections on the solution to that exam which were never corrected in
file -- and either no one has ever noticed in ten years or no one bothered to
mention it to me. Or figured with this many mistakes I didn't know what I
was doing! For 2e you're going to end up with a quadratic equation. In4d,
the square root wasn't done, so t = 1.749 sec and x = (7.80 m/s) (1.749
sec) = 13.64 m.

FINAL EXAM FORMAT: As in the Sample Exams, four
problems each with five parts (4 × 50,000 points), for a total of 200,000
points. Problems 2a, 2b, 2c and 2e are the Star Problems -- worth 10,000 Star
points each for a total of 40,000 Star points. Two full hours. Yes, the Final
Exam *is* cumulative. Roughly ¼ Exam 1 material, ¼ Exam 2,
¼ Exam 3 and ¼ the material since Exam 3. But you've seen the Sample
Final Exams.

**PHYS 2050 Mechanics and Heat 4 hrs.** *Fall, Winter, Summer I*
This first course in a sequence of three in calculus-based physics deals with
mechanics and heat. PHYS 2050 is intended for physics majors, engineering
students, and future physics teachers, and is recommended for majors in other
sciences. A student cannot receive credit for both PHYS 2050 and PHYS 1130.
Prerequisites : MATH 1220 or MATH 1700. Corequisites : MATH 1230 or MATH 1710.

**PHYS 2060 Mechanics and Heat Laboratory 1 hr.** *Fall, Winter, and
Summer I* This is a laboratory course which includes exercises related to
topics covered in PHYS 2050. A student may not receive credit for both PHYS
2060 and PHYS 1140. Corequisites : PHYS 2050.
