Product Description

For all of you who break out in a sweat at the thought of thermodynamics, or freeze up at the mention of quantum mechanics, like a bolt from the blue, Instant Physics will zap you through the fascinating history of our most basic, yet baffling, science.

From the thousand-year search for proof of the existence of the ever-elusive atom to the varied and heated arguments behind the big bang theory, Instant Physics answers all the heavy questions with a light touch. You'll learn:

  • How the Greek philosophers used the sledgehammer of mathematics to break apart the mysteries of the physical universe.
  • Why gravity is a "romantic" force.
  • How to tell the difference between a gluon, a meson, and a quark, even if you can't see them.
Instant Physics is crammed with special features, including chapter summaries, who's who lists, biographical and historical tidbits, and a host of illustrations, photos, equations, diagrams, and drawings.
