University Physics with Modern Physics, Thirteenth Edition continues to set the benchmark for clarity and rigor combined with effective teaching and research-based innovation. 
University Physics is known for its uniquely broad, deep, and thoughtful set of worked examples—key tools for developing both physical understanding and problem-solving skills. The Thirteenth Edition revises all the Examples and Problem-Solving Strategies to be more concise and direct while maintaining the Twelfth Edition's consistent, structured approach and strong focus on modeling as well as math. To help students tackle challenging as well as routine problems, the Thirteenth Edition adds Bridging Problems to each chapter, which poses a difficult, multiconcept problem and provide a skeleton solution guide in the form of questions and hints.
The text's rich problem sets—developed and refined over six decades—are upgraded to include larger numbers of problems that are biomedically oriented or require calculus.
Complementing the clear and accessible text, the figures use a simple graphic style that focuses on the physics. They also incorporate explanatory annotations—a technique demonstrated to enhance learning.

Salient Features

Deep and extensive problem sets covers a wide range of difficult and exercise both physical understanding and problem - solving expertise. Many problems are based on complex real life situation

 This text offers a larger number of examples and conceptual examples than any other leading calculus - based text, allowing it to explore problem solving challenges not addressed in other texts.

 A research based problem solving approach is used not just in every example but also in problem solving strategies.

 Problem solving strategies coach students in how to approach specific types of problems

 The figures use a simplified graphical style to focus on the physics of a situation, and they incorporate explanatory annotation. Both techniques have been demonstrated to have a strong positive effect on learning.

 Figures that illustrate example solution often take the form of black and white pencil sketches, which directly represents what a student should draw in solving such a problem.

 The popular caution paragraphs focus on typical misconceptions and student problem areas.

 End of section test your understanding questions let students check their grasp of the material and use a multiple choice or ranking task format to probe for common misconceptions.

 Visual summaries at the end of each chapter present the key ideas in words, equation, and thumbnail pictures, helping students to review more effectively
