Most widely held works by Paul G Hewitt
Conceptual physics by Paul G Hewitt( Book )
335 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 4,828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hewitt's text is famous for engaging readers with analogies and imagery from real-world situations that build a strong conceptual understanding of physical principles ranging from classical mechanics to modern physics. With this strong foundation, readers are better equipped to understand the equations and formulas of physics, and motivated to explore the thought-provoking exercises and fun projects in each chapter
Thinking physics : questions with conceptual explanations by Lewis C Epstein( Book )
11 editions published between 1979 and 1981 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Conceptual integrated science by Paul G Hewitt( Book )
18 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book will change the way you look at science. Written by best-selling author Paul Hewitt, Conceptual Integrated Science is more than a collection of facts-it's a guidebook for understanding the world around you. Using his successful "concepts first" method, accessible writing, and fun and informative illustrations, Hewitt and his team of science experts have crafted a text that focuses on unifying concepts and real-life examples across physics, chemistry, earth science, biology, and astronomy." "The book includes Hewitt's effective teaching method, straight-forward learning features, approachable style, and rigorous coverage. The result is a wide-ranging science text that is uniquely effective and motivational. Conceptual Integrated Science is accompanied by an unparalleled media package that combines Interactive Tutorials, Interactive Figures, and renowned demonstration videos to help you outside of class.

Conceptual physics : a high school physics program by Paul G Hewitt( Book )
10 editions published between 1986 and 1992 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A basic text which treats Physics conceptually, emphazing comprehension rather than mathematical structure
Touch this : conceptual physics for everyone by Paul G Hewitt( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in Danish and English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For a variety of reasons, many adults, especially parents and teachers, feel inadequate in science, particularly in physics. This book is an attempt to strengthen your knowledge of physics, so you can better discuss the basic laws of science with anyone, giving them a strong foundation on which to build an understanding of science as a whole.-Back cover
Guan nian wu li by Paul G Hewitt( Book )
7 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in Chinese and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Introductory physics : a problem-solving approach by Jesse David Wall( Book )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Conceptual physics for parents and teachers : mechanics : especially elementary school teachers, who, after parents, provide the learning foundation for children by Paul G Hewitt( Book )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Electric current by Paul G Hewitt( Visual )
4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A discussion of voltage difference and electric current leads to the development of Ohm's law. The difference between direct and alternating current is explained. A car battery is used to demonstrate the difference between series and parallel circuits
Electrostatics by Paul G Hewitt( Visual )
4 editions published between 1987 and 1991 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A discussion of positive and negative charges and the electrical force leads to the statement of Coulomb's law. Various demonstrations of electrostatic charging help introduce the concepts of conservation of charge, charge polarization, and electric field strength. How lightning rods work is demonstrated and explained
Energy by Paul G Hewitt( Visual )
4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Potential and kinetic energy and the concept of work are illustrated with a variety of demonstrations, including a bouncing dart, a pendulum, and a simple pulley system. The law of conservation of energy is illuminated using everyday examples and a hand-cranked generator
Conceptual physics alive! ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Reflection and refraction by Paul G Hewitt( Visual )
4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
After an examination of the law of reflection, mirrored and diffuse reflection are compared. Refraction is demonstrated by passing a laser beam through a water tank. Some of the consequences of refraction are explored, such as rainbows and the way light appears when passing through a glass or water
Light waves by Paul G Hewitt( Visual )
4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The interference of light waves is demonstrated with laserlight, and related to the colours of thin films. A discussion on polarization is illustrated using polarizing materials
Magnetism and E & M induction by Paul G Hewitt( Visual )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Electromagnets, electric motors, magnetic induction, and generators are examined, using numerous examples and demonstrations. Magnetic levitation is also demonstrated and applications of electromagnetic induction are discussed
Newton's first law by Paul G Hewitt( Visual )
6 editions published between 1987 and 1991 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The law of inertia and the concept of mass are introduced and supported with a variety of examples and demonstrations. The concepts of weight, cacellation of forces, and net force are also illustrated
Heat, temperature, and expansion by Paul G Hewitt( Visual )
4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Temperature and heat are distinguished from each other. The expansion of solids, liquids, and gases is compared. A discussion of specific heat capacity leads to an analysis of the physics of a freezing lake. Demonstrations using liquid nitrogen show the effects of low temperatures on various objects
Light and color by Paul G Hewitt( Visual )
4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The electromagnetic nature of light and the reasons its speed changes when passing through transparent materials are explained. Several demonstrations illustrate the addition of different colors of light. Finally, the colors of everyday things such as the sky, sunset and ocean are discussed
Newton's third law by Paul G Hewitt( Visual )
5 editions published between 1987 and 1991 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The idea that a force is a push or a pull is developed. The concept that forces always occur in pairs as interactions between two objects is supported with numerous examples, including a tug-of-war, recoiling gun, and moving rocket
Fission and fusion by Paul G Hewitt( Visual )
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fission and fusion are compared. Energy release from nuclear reactions is explained in terms of the resulting mass defects. Muon-induced cold fusion is also discussed briefly
