Physics for Architects, 2nd edition by Yehuda Salu focuses on architecture-related applications of physics concepts and principles. The WebAssign component for this title provides students with immediate feedback and includes question links to the eBook. Also included is a selection of questions from the exclusive WebAssign College Physics collection, which are organized to match the book's table of contents. These questions feature integrated feedback for every question part and detailed solutions for every question. Additionally, a series of multi-step tutorials are available to help strengthen problem-solving skills and conceptual understanding.

Questions Available within WebAssign

Most questions from this textbook are available in WebAssign. The online questions are identical to the textbook questions except for minor wording changes necessary for Web use. Whenever possible, variables, numbers, or words have been randomized so that each student receives a unique version of the question. This list is updated nightly.
