Synopsis

Foolish Physics by John Townsend

Physics deals with energy like heat and sound, forces such as gravity, what's in a lightning flash - and why planes crash. Physicists risked their lives with dangerous experiments and some blew themselves to pieces. In this book, read about the monk who tried to fly like a bird, how bath time proved a gold crown was fake, and why electric shocks were measured by how high they made people jump.
