dc.description.abstract Introduction to Physics is an adaptation of Concepts of Physics, itself an adaptation based on modules from OpenStax College Physics. Some of the modules removed from College Physics have been put back in, most notable modules on momentum, rotation, and special relativity. Sections on linear momentum have been added from James Rittenbach's derived copy of Concepts of Physics. Additional minor edits have been made as necessary. This textbook is intended for a one-semester introduction to physics course, requiring as little mathematics as possible. Students are expected to have taken some algebra and geometry at high-school level, but no higher level of mathematics is required (and use of algebra and geometry is minimized as much as possible, in order to emphasize the concepts of physics). The courses this textbook is intended for often go by the name of "conceptual physics," "descriptive physics," or "introduction to physics." This edition is put together for use by College of Alameda's Physics 10 course, starting in Summer 2018 (updated and revised as needed thereafter). en_US
