WINNER 2009 selection AWARD remarkable educational TITLE! the common advent to physics leaves readers with the influence that physics is ready 30 assorted, unconnected subject matters resembling movement, forces, gravity, electrical energy, gentle, warmth, strength, and atoms. as a rule, those readers are left to finish that physics is generally approximately dull, dead numbers.
Questioning the Universe: ideas in Physics bargains the nonscientist an alternate view: person who demonstrates how physics is forever evolving and indicates how such a lot of doubtless different options are in detail attached. in reality, possible argue that crucial rules in smooth physics are all approximately unification, and that those rules are as interesting as they're elegant.
Physicists at the present time think that mom Nature is remarkably effective and calls for just a really small variety of legislation to maintain her universe in operating order. We won't but comprehend all of those legislation; yet on the heart of physics is a religion that she is certainly comprehensible …and that sometime, we'll see her complete attractiveness.
The objective of this e-book is to inform readers the tale of what we've realized approximately nature to this point and the way now we have performed it. Written to arouse interest, this compelling and readable work:
- Delves into the main simple legislation concerning movement and effort, waves and particles
- Introduces sleek theories, together with relativity, quantum mechanics, and particle physics
- Describes the most important position performed by means of that elemental development block, the atom
- Discusses the evolution of the universe, together with the formation of stars and the secret of darkish topic and darkish energy
This booklet isn't for these doing physics yet is aimed toward those who easily want to learn about physics, so it calls for purely the main minimum math. What it does require is a feeling of interest, an appreciation of good looks, and the ability for awe.
