Physics is a branch of science that many people consider to be
too complicated to understand. In this exciting addition to the
the Exploring series, John Hudson Tiner puts this myth
to rest as he explains the fascinating world of physics in a way
that students from elementary to high school can comprehend.
Did you know that a feather and a lump of lead will fall at
the same rate in a vacuum? Learn about the history of physics
from Aristotle to Galileo to Isaac Newton to the latest advances.
Discover how the laws of motion and gravity affect everything
from the normal activities of everyday life to launching rockets
into space. Learn about the effects of inertia firsthand during
fun and informative experiments.
Physics equations and formulas are kept to a minimum. The author
starts with the simple and goes on to the complex, and the development
is somewhat historical in nature, but is intended to be an introductory
book for beginning physics students. Material of a more difficult
nature is found in sidebars entitled For More Study.
Exploring the World of Physics is a great tool for students
of all ages who want to have a deeper understanding of the important
and interesting ways that physics affects our lives and is complete
with illustrations, chapter questions, and an index.
