    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.
