What You Need for Physics 240

This page describes what you need if you took Physics 140 at Grossmont College in Fall 2014 or any time after that.

Don't buy another code; your code should still work!!!

We will cover chapters 18 through 31 or 32.  If you took Physics 140 at Grossmont College in Fall 2014 or any time after that, you have most of what you need.


WileyPlus Access Code: If you have a WileyPlus code for the 10th edition your WileyPlus code is still good, although you will need a new url for the class. 

Chapters 18  ̶  32 of Halliday, Resnick, and Walker, Fundamentals of Physics, 10th edition.  If you purchased the binder ready version of the book at the bookstore, you already have these chapters.  They are also available on-line with your code.  If you have a printed copy of the 9th edition, the text should still be suitable, but the end-of-chapter problems will not be correct.

Lab notebook: If you purchased the lab notebook for Physics 140, it is OK.  If you have a different one, you need to show it to me.

Lab manual: Physics 240 Lab Manual by Ross Cohen

Optional Texts:

Study Guide to accompany Fundamentals of Physics: A single volume covers all 44 chapters.

Student solution manual: I recommend you use the online version available with your WileyPlus code.


You need a ruler and protractor and a non-programmable scientific calculator.  Programmable calculators are not permitted for the tests, but they are OK for the quizzes.
