How to Fall Slower Than Gravity | Author: Paul J. Nahin
Back in stock soon.
Paul Nahin is a master at explaining odd phenomena through straightforward mathematics. In this collection of twenty-six intriguing problems, he explores how mathematical physicists think. Always entertaining, the problems range from ancient catapult conundrums to the puzzling physics of a very peculiar material called NASTYGLASS — and from dodging trucks to why raindrops fall slower than the rate of gravity.
The questions raised may seem impossible to answer at first and may require an unexpected twist in reasoning, but sometimes their solutions are surprisingly simple. Nahin’s goal, however, is always to guide readers — who will need only to have studied advanced high school math and physics — in expanding their mathematical thinking to make sense of the curiosities of the physical world.
