There are seven chapters: Air, Water, Mechanical Energy and Machines, Heat, Sound, Light, and Magnetism & Electricity. Each chapter contains 15-20 experiments, and each experiment includes instructions, a line drawing, the predicted observation and an explanation. There is an index at the back.
Brilliant, compact and invaluable. Appropriate for middle school through high school. The paper quality is good, the binding is strong and the book lies flat for easy reference by busy scientists.
One of the first experiments is titled, "Which is Heavier, Hot Air or Cold?" The explanation just concludes hot air weighs less without explaining that, with applied heat, some of the warmed air expanded out of the bottle. There's less air in the bottle to weigh!
I can not recommend this book. If you use it as is, you will find yourself constantly searching for substitute materials. You will also be teaching incorrect or incomplete concepts.
