Overview

Here is an entirely new kind of dictionary — one that is packed with superb, full-color photographs and illustrations, and with thousands of scientific terms. The Visual Dictionary of Physics will give you instant access to the specialized vocabulary relating to physics in a way that is clear, informative, and easy to understand. If you have heard of a particular scientific process, but don't understand how it works, then turn to the labels around the illustrations. Alternatively, if you know a term but don't know exactly what it refers to, then the comprehensive index will direct you to the illustration that bears the name.

This volume forms part of a series that, like the Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Books, builds thematically into a comprehensive and exquisitely illustrated treasure trove of words and pictures providing high-quality information for readers of all ages.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-In the visually clear, oversized format typical of the series, this book offers a bit about a wide variety of topics, from Newton's Laws to Feynman diagrams. It is an enticing choice for browsing that may inspire further research, or that might possibly supply just the information needed for an assignment on simple machines. Unfortunately, not every full-color illustration or photograph can substitute for a thousand words. The extreme brevity of the presentations may leave readers mystified, especially if they haven't learned, for instance, the use of a negative exponent for division. The fact that the minus signs are vanishingly small adds to the confusion. Challoner avoids math as much as possible, and when he does finally list some formulas, he makes some classic errors. The audience for the book is hard to determine: the format will appeal to young children, but complete understanding of the content requires more background. Physics Today (World Book, 1985; o.p.) gives a more complete presentation, while Peter Lafferty's Force and Motion or Christopher Cooper's Matter (1992, both DK) have a narrower range.-Margaret Chatham, Tysons-Pimmit Regional Library of Fairfax County Library System, VA
