Entropy for Smart Kids and their Curious Parents

This book discusses entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics in such a way that everyone can understand its subject matter.

Entropy for Smart Kids and their Curious Parents

This book discusses entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics in such a way that everyone can understand its subject matter. Entropy is one of the most interesting concepts in physics. Although it is a well-defined concept, it is still perceived by even well-known scientists as a concept cloaked in mystery. It is also the most misused, and often abused, concept in physics. In order to understand entropy, one needs to understand the Shannon measure of information, and in order to grasp this idea, one must be familiar with some basic concepts of probability. Therefore, this book consists of three chapters: the first discusses probability, the second addresses Information Theory, and the third considers entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Readers will discover that the Second Law is nothing but a law of probability.

Learn Physics with Tim   Kim

How many kids love reading science? May be a few. How many kids love reading stories? Almost all. We all know science is very interesting so if we make kids learn science through stories then that can become captivating reading material. This book attempts to interweave science topics with stories. If you are curious about what are the simple machines, how sound gets produced, what are newton's laws of motions, what is Archimedes' principle and many more, then this book is what you should be reading to get answers to all your questions. During my decade-long tenure as physics teacher, I've always tried to impart my knowledge in the most creative and interesting way possible. I am continuing my quest to mix science with creativity through this book. I've tried focusing on an array of physics topics in order to make the content as diverse as possible. All the topics are explained through conversations of two young siblings, Tim & Kim. Very interesting real-life examples are depicted to prove or describe the science behind them. Not to forget, there are plenty of beautiful illustrations to help readers actually connect with the topics and experiments. The narration of the book is simple yet in effective manner to help young readers understand the science fundamentals efficiently. This book is an honest and humble endeavour to make young readers fall in love with the science and its "magic"!

Surely You re Joking Mr Feynman Adventures of a Curious Character

 Surely You re Joking  Mr  Feynman    Adventures of a Curious Character

One of the most famous science books of our time, the phenomenal national bestseller that "buzzes with energy, anecdote and life. It almost makes you want to become a physicist" (Science Digest). Richard P. Feynman, winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, thrived on outrageous adventures. In this lively work that “can shatter the stereotype of the stuffy scientist” (Detroit Free Press), Feynman recounts his experiences trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and cracking the uncrackable safes guarding the most deeply held nuclear secrets—and much more of an eyebrow-raising nature. In his stories, Feynman’s life shines through in all its eccentric glory—a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, and raging chutzpah. Included for this edition is a new introduction by Bill Gates.

From Broadway to the Bowery

In 1935 Sidney Kingsley’s play about streetwise urban kids, Dead End, opened on Broadway featuring 14 adolescent actors. For two years on Broadway and then on tour, Kingsley’s play delivered its social commentary contrasting affluent neighborhoods and tenement slums on New York City’s East River. The film industry picked up the story and in 1937 released Dead End which spawned 23 more years of films and serials featuring the Dead End Kids and their offshoots, Little Tough Guys, East Side Kids and the Bowery Boys. This chronicle follows the street kids through the many assorted incarnations, shifting casts and studios. First the reader is introduced to how the original play and film came about. A cast list and analysis of each production follows. For the major players, the author provides a biography and filmography, and several of these entries include a tribute from a friend or family member. Brief biographical profiles are given for other actors. Sketches of the “Dead End” revivals of 1978 and 2005 follow.

Where Did the Universe Come From  And Other Cosmic Questions

Do you ever look up to the stars and wonder about what is out there? Over the last few centuries, humans have successfully unraveled much of the language of the universe, exploring and defining formerly mysterious phenomena such as electricity, magnetism, and matter through the beauty of mathematics. But some secrets remain beyond our realm of understanding—and seemingly beyond the very laws and theories we have relied on to make sense of the universe we inhabit. It is clear that the quantum, the world of atoms and electrons, is entwined with the cosmos, a universe of trillions of stars and galaxies...but exactly how these two extremes of human understanding interact remains a mystery. Where Did the Universe Come From? And Other Cosmic Questions allows readers to eavesdrop on a conversation between award-winning physicists Chris Ferrie and Geraint F. Lewis as they examine the universe through the two unifying and yet often contradictory lenses of classical physics and quantum mechanics, tackling questions such as: Where did the universe come from? Why do dying stars rip themselves apart Do black holes last forever? What is left for humans to discover? A brief but fascinating exploration of the vastness of the universe, this book will have armchair physicists turning the pages until their biggest and smallest questions about the cosmos have been answered.
