2nd ed. — CRC Press, 2009. — xx+543 p. — ISBN 978-1-4398-1073-6 ."Superstrings and Other Things: A Guide to Physics, Second Edition" continues to take the interested on a uniquely accessible journey through physics. This guide explains the basic concepts of motion, energy, and gravity, right up through the latest theories about the structure of matter, the origin of the universe, and the beginning of time. Fully illustrated throughout, the book explores major discoveries and the scientists behind them, from Galileo, Newton, and Einstein, to Feynman and Hawking. Numerous examples of physics in everyday situations are provided and made tangible. When Dr. Calle wrote the first edition of this bestseller, even he would have been surprised by the newest development in String Theory, the far reaching M-Theory. In addition to details about M-Theory, he adds a number of other surprises and updated material for this edition. Not only will you be rewarded with a basic understanding of the fundamental concepts of physics, but you will also come to have the chance to stand on the very edge of the breathtaking frontiers of physics today.Preface Acknowledgments AuthorIntroductory Concepts Physics: The Fundamental ScienceThe Laws of Mechanics The Description of Motion The Laws of Mechanics: Newton’s Laws of Motion Energy Conservation of Energy and Momentum Rotation and the Universal Law of GravitationThe Structure of Matter Atoms: Building Blocks of the Universe The Heart of the Atom: The Nucleus FluidsThermodynamics Heat and Temperature The Laws of ThermodynamicsElectricity and Magnetism Electricity Applied Electricity ElectromagnetismWaves Wave Motion Sound Optics The Nature of LightModern Physics The Special Theory of Relativity The General Theory of Relativity The Early Atomic Theory Quantum Mechanics Nuclear Physics Elementary Particles Unifying Physics SuperstringsAppendixs Powers of Ten The Elements Nobel Prize Winners in Physics Physics Timeline Discover What You Have Learned Glossary Index
