Summary

Physics is fun! It's all about pushing and pulling, running and jumping, rainbows and rockets — it's even about sports! Physics involves the sun and the moon and all the things around you, including how you use energy and how animals and plants do, too. This is the book you'll want to use to discover fascinating facts about gravity, light, heat, sound, and other wonders such as thunder and lightning and volcanoes.
Find out how things move, how you see and hear, what electricity is, and what's inside an atom. These 46 detailed, full-page illustrations with easy-to-understand captions will introduce you to the most basic concepts of physics, using memorable examples drawn from nature.
