Presents an overview of modern science with discussions of matter and motion, forces of nature, and the chemistry of life
With hundreds of photographs, with specially commissioned illustrations, and with great good humor, Everyday Science Explained takes on the hows and whys of the science that shapes our daily lives. The first two chapters transform the often intimidating field of physics into a true joyride. Chapter three does the same for chemistry, while the final chapter explores the wonders of human biology and biochemistry. Throughout, in design as well as in content, this book is highly user-friendly. While it can be read cover to cover, it also lends itself readily to nonlinear browsing.
