All About Physics



Put the fizz back into Physics! Updated and with refreshed jackets

Physics doesn't just happen in a lab - it happens in the kitchen, in your bath, in a car! This award-winning title by television presenter and writer Richard Hammond shows you how.From explanations of phenomena like electricity to details about composition of atoms and their charge, All About Physics is crammed with interesting facts and fascinating experiments.

Join a thrilling high-energy journey through space, time, and beyond and find out about the forces that make our world what it is. Experience some "light" reading about waves and the electromagnetic spectrum, get stuck into friction, and feel the heat with temperature. You can also find out the answers to age-old scientific questions such why the sky is blue, and more obscure conundrums like why golf balls have dimples.

With rich illustrations, concise and simple text, and a glossary of the most common terms, All About Physics takes you on a fun journey while you learn about the invisible, the unexplained, and the downright weird!
