"28.3 Calculating Electric Flux

Let's start with a brief overview of where this section will take us. We'll begin with a definition of flux that is easy to understand, then we'll turn that simple definition into a formidable-looking integral. We need the integral because the simple definition applies only to uniform electric fields and flat surfaces. Those are good starting points, but we'll soon need to calculate the flux of nonuniform fields through curved surfaces.
Mathematically, the flux of a

really good details that makes physics easy to understand.

Another Goodreads reviewer, Choupette, has posted a quote from this book. The portion "Now that you've been warned, you needn't panic at the sight of the mathematical notation that will be introduced." is the most relevant to me. Why would people who panic at new math notation ever be taking a class out of this book? It's just so condescending and ridiculous.

And it's SO VERBOSE. No textbook needs to be 1200 pages.

(I actually have the 1st edition...)

Good overall textbook. Problem sets were very helpful in that they went from basic single concept questions to multi-concept questions to incredibly challenging questions. Used for a intro to physics for physics majors course. Modern physics section was light on mathematics so professor used supplemental texts as well.

Only complaint is that the sample problems interrupted the flow of the text quite often. Would rather they be placed at the end of sections instead in the middle of them.

The only freaking book i've been able to read this year because of my bloody physics course. -_-
Good textbook nonetheless though I suppose.

As far as Text books go this one is clear and concise as it takes you from Newtonian physics into the world of quantum mechanics.
