Reading Physics

A Guide to Understanding Basic Classical Mechanics without Mathematical Expressions

by Jae Jun Kim, Ph.D.


This book was written to help college students understand physics without complicated math. Each year thousands of college students pursuing business and humanities degrees find themselves taking a course in introductory physics. But many will have serious trouble solving physics problems because they do not have enough experience using mathematical equations. Understanding physics is challenging without a strong math background, but not impossible. Unlike other introductions to physics, this book explains the basic concepts in classical mechanics with a minimal amount mathematical expressions so new students can spend their time learning physics, not math. The result is not only a better understanding of physics, but possibly a better grade. This study guide covers the three aspects of ...

Physics Practical for Engineers with Viva-Voce

15 Classic Physics Lab Experiments for Engineering Students

by Chandra Mohan Singh Negi


This is one of enumerable self-help or how to books with an emphasis on Engineering Physics Practical. The basic premise of the book is that there are certain simple experiments, involving no more than rudimentary Physics laws and the very basic laws of Engineering Physics for undergraduate college engineering students. But these practical are often not done or taken lightly, for several reasons. First, people don’t realize how easy they are to do. Second, and more fundamental, they are not done because it does not occur to people to do them. Finally, and tragically, no one in their elementary, middle, or high school educational experience has stressed the importance of doing them, and of course neither did they teach to do them. This book is to reveal to you what the experiments are, ma...

Gravity- Galileo to Einstein and Back

Newtonian Force, Slave or Master? (Revised Edition)

by H R Harrison


Gravity – Galileo to Einstein and Back starts with a revision of the fundamentals of the theory of dynamics and gravitation. The object is to present a relativistic theory of gravitation which is an extension of the Special Theory of Relativity. The new approach to gravitomagnetics now expresses the relative acceleration in terms of the relative velocity in addition to relative separation. This produces results for the precession of the perihelion of Mercury and for the deflection of light grazing the Sun which are identical to those given by the General Theory of Relativity. Both of these were hailed as justifications of the general theory. When the new theory is applied to the motion of groups of particles or the rotation of solid bodies the results differ slightly from published paper...

The Fourth Dimension

Enigma of Time

by Dayalanand Roy, Ph.D.


Einstein shocked the world by revealing that time can be different for different observers. This book offers a possible explanation of why it is so. It offers a never-attempted-before approach to understand the secret of time. As we all know, there is an intimate relationship between time and age of objects. But what is this relationship? The author dives deep into the possible relationships between time and age of objects- animate or inanimate- and, in turn, emerges with a novel concept of time- time is a measurement of age. The book proposes that time is acquired by age, not required for it; and thus, time is an acquired property of objects. The author also proposes that just as length, width and height are the measurements of physical extensions of objects (their three spatial dimensio...

The Magical Classroom

Exploring Science, Language, and Perception with Children

by Michael J. Strauss


Imagine amazing your students by sticking a knitting needle through a balloon without popping it or bending a spoon completely in half with only the power of your mind. They would think their teacher is a magician! They would want to know how you did it and would start asking questions to understand the strange phenomenon. Abracadabra! You have just actively engaged them in the process of scientific reasoning-close observation, questioning, hypothesizing, experimenting, and coming to a conclusion. You have also shown them how descriptive language can color what they see and don't see. The Magical Classroom is about the science of magic. This book: -provides teachers with clear, step-by-step instructions on how to perform magical effects and illusions -includes detailed drawings to illustra...

Out of Chaos

Evolution from the Big Bang to Human Intellect

by Wayne M. Bundy


Excerpt from Foreword, written by Stuart Ross Taylor:"Are we really the pinnacle of 4500 million years of evolution? Closely related to the aggressive chimpanzees, have we evolved enough to cope? The nightly news on television, that mervelous technical invention of scientists, no turned into a field too barren to be termed a wastelad, provides little hope that Homo sapiens is more than another of nature's failed experiments... "Will a more evolved species evolve in time? Wayne notes the extraordinary achievements of the Ashkenazi Jews, separated in European ghettos for centuries, whose descendants, now three percent of the US population, have gernered 27% of the Nobel Prizes awarded to that country. In their enforced isolation, restricted to intellectually demanding occupations, did they e...

Ordaining Reality

How Physics and Metaphysics Shape Your Future

by Joseph E. Donlan, Ph.D.


Many people believe in the power of positive thinking (i.e., how thoughts and attitude can shape their future) yet, despite a plethora of books on this subject, no previous author has credibly explained how mere thoughts are able to tangibly influence future events. To explain the connection, Dr. Donlan presents a new paradigm of nature coupled with a viable explanation of how our right cerebral hemisphere has evolved circuitry that can tap into the hidden domain of the metaphysical. To support this premise, he exposes the reader to the worlds of physics, metaphysics, brain architecture, and evolution. Donlan then introduces the many problems associated with the current model and contrasts it with a new view which remedies many of the issues facing theoretical physicists today. Important t...

by Dr. K. Somashekhar Udupa


This innovative study challenges existing theory of gravitation, suggesting an important modification that better explains the mechanism of the solar system. Through hundreds of mathematical proofs using calculations based on our solar system and an important discovery regarding the interior mechanism of the sun, the author reveals an important aspect of gravitation overlooked by modern science that extends our understanding of the our own solar system, as well as other galaxies and celestial motion in general.

Space, Elastic and Impeding

Two Qualities of Space Define Energy Which Defines Elementary Particles and Their Interactions

by Salvatore Gerard Micheal


The conceptual foundations for a deterministic quantum mechanics are presented with the Socratic method. The theory is attacked and weaknesses elucidated. These are compared against those of convention. Directions for future research are proposed.
