The Complete Idiot's Guide to Physics
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
An introductory text aimed at American high-school students, this guide to basic physics is in five parts: on motion near the Earth's surface; how and why things move; work and energy; heat, sound and states of matter; and the anatomy of atoms, electricity and light. The textbook is clearly laid out, with down-to-earth explanations, definitions in text boxes, exercises ('Problems for the Budding Rocket Scientist'), and requires no calculus. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
