Synopsis

Cool Physics by Sarah Hutton

Cool Physics is a playful, enjoyable guide to the world of physics, from Archimedes saying 'Eureka!' (probably not in the bath) to the Higgs Boson. Aimed at older children and curious adults, it covers everything you need to know about some of the most complex scientific ideas the world has ever seen, made accessible and fun - Newton's Theory of Relativity, quantum physics, nuclear fission and fusion, quarks, Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle and that old favourite E=mc2 are all explained here, clearly and entertainingly. There are also 10 practical experiments to give you even more insight into the theories, including making a pinhole camera, a whirlpool in a bottle and electric circuits with Play-Doh. Packed with quirky illustrations and fascinating factual titbits, this book is both an incredibly useful companion to school studies and an absorbing read in its own right.
