### Publisher's Website

The publisher of our text has a very nice accompanying website including many practice problems and exercises. You may access this website at: http://cw.prenhall.com/bookbind/pubbooks/giancoli3/.

Note: When using using the grading feature of this website to see how you have done on the practice problems, DO NOT have your results emailed to Prof. Teitel or to your TA. These problems are for your practice only -- of course if you have any questions about the correct solutions to any of these problems, feel free to discuss them with any of the course staff.

Note: The interactive "Physlet Problems" on this website will not work on Macintosh computers. See the information on the website for the minimun requirements for running physlets on a PC.
