Physics Summary

Physics: A complete introduction by Jim Breithaupt

Physics does not have to be daunting. This book, complete with practice questions and answers, forms a course which will take you from beginner or intermediate level to having a confident grasp of physics. The book includes: simple step-by-step explanations, to help you grasp new topics or those that have previously confused you; practice questions throughout, to help you embed your learning and improve your confidence; and end of chapter summaries to help you remember the key points you've learnt - all in one great-value book, so you don't need any separate workbooks or coursebooks.

Chapters include: Starting physics, motion, forces in action, thermal physics, engines and thermodynamics, electricity, the nature of light, materials and molecules, quantum theory and relativity, the structure of matter, nuclear energy, space and the universe, and the frontiers of physics.

The Complete Introduction series from Teach Yourself is the ultimate one-stop guide for anyone wanting a comprehensive and accessible entry point into subjects as diverse as philosophy, mathematics, psychology, economics and practical electronics. Loved by students and perfect for general readers who simply want to learn more about the world around them, these books are your first choice for discovering something new.
