Overview


Newest in Barron's series of popular illustrated science reference guides, the Essential Atlas of Physics and Chemistry explains fundamental principles of both sciences and shows how they relate to one another. Text and illustrations are combined in an easy-to-understand yet scientifically accurate context. The related concepts of energy and heat are explained in terms of their uses in both simple and complex machines. Also explained are the characteristics of liquids, gases, and solids. Other subjects covered are the characteristics of sound, light, electricity and magnetism, atomic structure, the periodic table of elements, and simple chemical reactions. Full-color photos, artwork, and diagrams on every page complement clear textual descriptions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Barron's Educational Series has hit the jackpot by blending together a plethora of graphics and simple explanations to breathe life into the wonderful book Esential Atlas of Physics and Chemistry .... provides the reader with eye-catching (and eye-holding) photos and diagrams.... Middle school and high school students should have access to a copy of Essential Atlas of Physics and Chemistry. . . . . It offers a review of many concepts included in National Education Science Standards for Upper Elementary and Middle School children. Secondary students would benefit from this resource as well.... I recommend that both school and public libraries include this atlas on their shelves."
Science Activities, Robert G. Hoehn
