The book does not offer enough content for the students to develop an in-depth understanding of the topics covered in an introductory calculus-based physics course. The book would also be useful for undergraduate physics majors studying for the Physics GRE, as 2/5(1). A Cultural History of Physics is a grand monument to the life of its Simonyi was teacher first, scholar second, and scientist third. His book likewise has three components. First a text, describing the history of science over the last four thousand years in a rich context of philosophy, art and literature.

The History of Physics was always on my bookshelf years ago when I worked as a research chemist. Rather than simply divide physics into component disciplines and present our current knowledge, Asimov explains physics by tracing its development from the ancient Greeks and the great Renaissance thinkers up to our modern day luminaries such as Cited by: Following the hugely successful The Science Book and The Math Book comes a richly illustrated chronology of physics, containing short, entertaining, and thought-provoking entries.

For the first time in the history of physics, there exists a theory which has no obvious intrinsic limitation and enables us in principle to calculate physical phenomena to any accuracy we need in terms of a few measurable parameters such as the elementary electric charge e [fine structure constant] and the electron mass m.
The Physics Book history of physics. book a phenomenal book. Before I read this, I hated physics. I did not understand physics and did not want to learn about physics. For my 8th grade physical science class, I always needed help with the physics part of the class until I read The Physics Book about two months after we /5.
University Physics I: Classical Mechanics. Contributor: Gea-Banacloche. Publisher: University of Arkansas. This is a “minimalist” textbook for a first semester of university, calculus-based physics, covering classical mechanics (including one chapter on mechanical waves, but excluding fluids), plus a brief introduction to thermodynamics.
Some good and instructive historical books about the history of physics include the following ones: The Science Of Mechanics, by Dr. Ernst Mach(A book that influenced Einstein). The Evolution Of Physics, by Einstein,Albert (An informative, non-t. The book is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of experiments, early modern science, or the history of physics and chemistry.
