Summary

A Fresh Look at Core Physics Topics

Physics is one of the most fundamental scientific fields, its principles used in virtually all other branches of science as well as engineering, and is a common subject taught in middle school and high school. The Physics in Our World set puts a fresh spin on the science curriculum and shows that physics is still a relevant and dynamic science.

Each volume in this set provides the fundamental laws of one or two of the main branches of physics, and examines how these principles influence objects and events in the world today. The accessible books focus on examples that appeal to young adults, such as space exploration, music, and automobiles. Coverage includes topics not found in other physics books, such as the physics of bioelectricity (electricity in living organisms), forces and motions of hurricanes, and the use of X-rays and gamma rays in astronomy.
