If just thinking about the laws of physics makes your head spin, this hands-on, friendly guide gets you out of the black hole and sheds light on this often-intimidating subject. Tracking to a typical Physics I course, it teaches you the basic principles and formulas in a clear and concise manner, proving that you don't have to be Einstein to understand physics!
Get into motion — start your journey with a look at acceleration, velocity, and displacement, which is a great way to understand how physics works
May the force be with you — get the 411 on Newton's laws and easily grasp equal and opposite forces, inertia and mass, friction, equilibrium, and much more
Make physics work — discover the ins and outs of turning energy into work, conserving mechanical energy, and seeing how rotational motion makes the world go 'round
Turn up the heat with thermodynamics — find out everything you need to know about the physics of heat, temperature, and the ideal gas laws you'll encounter in your studies
Open the book and find:
How to measure displacement, speed, velocity, and acceleration
Math fundamentals and systems of measurement you need to know
Plain-English explanations of Newton's laws
The lowdown on gravity, inclined planes, and friction
A look at centripetal acceleration, momentum and impulse, and angular kinetics
The scoop on fluids, flow, and pressure
The laws of thermodynamics
Get up to speed on the basic concepts of physics
Grasp formulas in a clear and concise manner
Explore the newest discoveries in the field
I'll see how I like it at the end of the semester when I pass my Physics class!Published 19 days ago by Tonya G. Ware
Well written, easy to follow! I used this to tutor, and it was perfect for my needs! Definitely suggest for anyone wanting to learn or struggling with Physics.Published 1 month ago by Brandon
Easier to understand than the textbook, but still doesn't answer all of my questions about PhysicsPublished 2 months ago by mary jane delgado
Great for students and non students to learn. River wanted to know the pull of gravity between earth and sun it is herePublished 4 months ago by barry d mcmullan
this book just tells you the laws of physics basically.
doesn't really go deeply into the topics.
basically it says an object moves because friction, etc. Read more
