is provided here (1st Semester Downloads
and 2nd Semester Downloads)
in pdf and MS WordTM formats. Calculus-Based
Physics is now available in hardcopy in the form of two black and white
paperbacks at www.LuLu.com at the cost of production plus shipping.
Note that Calculus-Based Physics is designed for easy photocopying. So,
if you prefer to make your own hard copy, just print the pdf file and
make as many copies as you need. While some color is used in the
textbook, the text does not refer to colors so black and white hard
copies are viable.
I wrote Calculus-Based Physics
in MS WordTM to make it easy for you to
edit it. If the book looks useful to you, but some changes would make
it more useful, please download the MS WordTM
version and edit it to your liking. If you do that, it would be
appreciated if you could post it (both a version that folks can edit
and a pdf version) to your web site and give me the URL so that I can
provide a link to it on this site.
