  • About the Edition

    Physics can explain many of the things that we commonly encounter. It can tell us why the night is dark, what causes the tides, and even how best to catch a baseball. With In Praise of Simple Physics, popular math and science writer Paul Nahin presents a plethora of situations that explore the science and math behind the wonders of everyday life. Roaming through a diverse range of puzzles, he illustrates how physics shows us ways to wring more energy from renewable sources, to measure the gravity in our car garages, to figure out which of three light switches in the basement controls the light bulb in the attic, and much, much more.

    Don Lemons's delightful Drawing Physics takes us from Heraclitus to Higgs, from planets to particle physics, from astronomy to atoms, with the aid of simple diagrams—a neglected set of cultural artifacts in the history of science. Literate, accurate, and accessible, Drawing Physics is a gem. Robert C. Hilborn. This introductory, algebra-based, two-semester college physics book is grounded with real-world examples, illustrations, and explanations to help students grasp key, fundamental physics concepts. This online, fully editable and customizable title includes learning objectives, concept questions, links to labs and simulations, and ample practice opportunities to solve traditional physics.
