You don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand physics. Now anyone with an interest in the physical sciences can master physics - without formal training or drowning in a sea of complicated formulas and equations. In "Physics Demystified" best-selling author Stan Gibilisco offers a fun, effective, and totally painless way to learn the fundamentals and general concepts of physics. With "Physics Demystified" you master the subject one simple step at a time - at your own speed. Unlike most books on physics, general principles are presented first - and the details follow. In order to make the learning process as clear and simple as possible, heavy-duty math, formulas, and equations are kept to a minimum. This unique self-teaching guide offers questions at the end of each chapter and section to pinpoint weaknesses, and a 100-question final exam to reinforce the entire book. Simple enough for a beginner but challenging enough for an advanced student, "Physics Demystified" is your direct route to learning or brushing up on physics.; Here's everything you need to: understand the math used in physical science; solve mass/force/acceleration problems; create mathematical models of physical phenomena; perform distance vs. time calculations; determine potential and kinetic energy; calculate the wavelength of sounds and radio signals; understand visible light interference patterns; calculate the energy and frequency of a moving particle; understand atomic structure; and learn about electric current, voltage, resistance, power, and energy.
