Overview

Packed with amusing examples and experiments that readers can try for themselves, E=MC2 covers all of the most important discoveries of physics. Travel down the highway, through the beach, and to the pub and learn how physics affects everything in your surroundings-without the use of mind- bending math or the need for a particle accelerator.

With E=MC2, you'll find:
  • Simple answers to questions such as, "Why do balloons rise while apples fall?"
  • Easy definitions of terms like radioactivity, kinetic energy, and electromagnets
  • A quick run-through of the history of physics-two-and-a-half millennia of scientific progress spanning from the ancient Greeks, to Newton, to today
  • How the first stars were born
  • A refresher on the theory of relativity and an understanding of why-a hundred years later-Einstein's physics still points the way in cutting-edge research
  • How satellites work (and why they don't work during inclement weather)


  • It's physics for the rest of us. So why not come along for the ride? Advance at the speed of light through the fundamental laws of physics as they were discovered, proven wrong, and revolutionized.

    Great science

    I though it was a great book but was slanted towards the more athiest point of veiw. The actual facts were great and very well explained.
