A Beginner's Guide to Physics Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Steven Wood

Paperback / softback


Why does an astronaut bouncing on the moon weigh more than you do down on Earth? And what has the three bears' porridge got to do with Earth? (It's not too hot, not too cold, it's just right.) In this funny and at times mind-boggling introduction to physics, you'll learn everything from basic ideas like the structure of atoms and the radiation spectrum to BIG ideas like the Big Bang and how Isaac Newton figured out the law of gravity simply because an apple fell on his head.

You'll also learn about some of the exciting things physicists are discovering today about science.

Is time travel possible? Do robots think like humans? Brimming full of informative and accessible text, and illustrated with fun and brilliant colourful artwork, turn the pages and start your very own Physics adventure!
