Abstract:

A long-trusted resource, "Physics Made Simple has been completely rewritten and updated for a new generation of readers. This introductory text guides students through the confounding complexities of basic--and not-so-basic--physics. Filled with anecdotes, humorous illustrations, and fun-to-do practice problems, this enlightening guide covers it all, including the classic concepts of force, motion, and energy, theories of relativity and atomic structure, and the cutting-edge of quantum mechanics and particle physics. Friendly and inviting, "Physics made simple" tames this most basic--and intimidating--of hard sciences.
