Description

By posing a number of basic questions about everyday life and observable phenomena, this engaging piece of popular science seeks to demonstrate the importance of physics to daily activity. From simple questions such as "Why does the shower curtain stick to one's legs when the faucet is turned on? "and "Why does metal turn red when it gets hot, instead of green? "to more complex concerns such as why there is more matter than antimatter in the universe and why light can travel through a vacuum when sound cannot, the book seeks to show that science, while absolutely essential to life, can also be exceptionally fascinating and fun.show more
