For all of those who took introductory college level physics courses once upon a time, and wish to know more about the development of the science during the 20th century, this is a very authentic introduction. When we descsrgar at an object, we find that it has an apparent width and depth, but they are not fundamental properties of the object, because if we look at it from a different frame of reference it would look different.
But, as Feynman shows so clearly and so entertainingly in the faclies chosen for this volume, these crazy notions are no mere dry principles of physics, but are things of beauty and elegance.
In a few short lessons, he showed me what had taken months at university to understand. Well, we cause some of the atoms well molecules in reality of the tea to get so excited and jiggly that they break away from the liquid and fly off into the air. We have “Not so easy” is right!
Did have some fun re-revelations about relativity. So they purposely facile an error in there, so that the gods would not be jealous and get angry with human beings. The sections on conversational energy, Gravitation and Quantum mechanics are a little basic but interesting nonetheless after all these are the easy pieces!
OK, this was written inand maybe before that students were simply told to memorize the Lorentz transformation matrix. He held the Richard Chace Tolman professorship in theoretical physics at Caltech. Dec 22, Ashudza Uchiha rated it it was amazing. Because of this, this book is highly recommended to whoever has a minimum knowledge of maths and wants to start looking at relativity from a more detailed perspective than what offered by many generic popular science books.
If that doesn’t scare you, or if you have the will and the seia to give it a try anyway, Feynmann’s presentation is imaginative, entertaining, and for the most part accessible.

I think I need to read it again! He has no patience for formalisms or conventions; he is anything but pedantic. Later, he considers the best path to move a projectile between two points in a fixed amount of time, using only relativity theory.
I really wish Feynman’s entire lecture set wasn’t so expensive: I found it interesting that the curvature of a sphere is the same as for a disk with a temperature that gradually increases out from the centre, which causes anything on it to expand accordingly.
Sure, we produce a lot of duds; but occasionally someone like Feynman will come along that makes it seem all worthwhile. This one was not-so-easy. If the observer is travelling at the speed of light, his perception of the object would be different from someone in a stationary state.

The more jiggly they are to start with, the more likely they are to break off, thus the tea gets less jiggly and jigglyness is equivalent to heat. This gate is very elaborate, with lots of gables and beautiful carving and lots of columns and dragon heads and princes carved into the pillars, and so on. Richard Phillips Feynman was an American physicist known for the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the feynmman of quantum electrodynamics and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as work in particle deis he proposed the parton model.
I am one ffynman them when it comes to this book. An event physical reality is defined by both space and time because the position of an object is characterized by the time. Like those two, Feynman manages to be brilliant in three syllables or less.
The piezzs has the same style and accessibility as its predecessor but the maths can be difficult to follow. I especially like the ant on the reverse hot-plate analogy.
Calculating the optimum rate generates the Lagrangian for the difference between kinetic and potential energy, from which we can derive the laws of classical mechanics. Essentials of Physics Explained by Its Most Brilliant Teacher “, there was a lot more mathematical formalism that was a little tough to follow, but with patience could be understood.
Now, I have read more comprehensive works on relativity, with much more emphasis on its mathematical foundational underpinnings; and I can tell you that, if you are looking for something significantly beyond the introductory level, you will not learn much from this book.

The introduction promises us an innovative approach to understanding physics. The description of the object also depends upon the frame of reference observer.
Nov 13, Rajendra Dave rated it really liked it. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Owing to their short length and numerous omissions, they are not meant to give the reader a rigorous introduction to the subject; nor are they, on the other desxargar, mere titillating anecdotes or strained analogies.
Nov 04, Roy Lotz rated it really liked it Shelves: Perhaps the best example fadiles this is his explanation of simple machines piezass the first volume; he jumps past all the rules we learn in grade school, and explains it all in terms of conservation of energy.
This is not easy reading if you’re not a physicist or a mathematician. Apr 03, Charles Bell rated it it was ok.
The best way to think of them are as Feynman samplers; you will not be able to eat your faaciles, but the books leave a pleasant taste in your mouth. Insight for non-mathematicians I’ve often wanted to understand how mathematics has been used to define laws that are proven, or not, by experiment.
Though written in Feynman’s casual, conversational style, the book never fails to make your head spin, and it’s fun to put the book down on your chest in the middle of a chapter and think about how your reality ain’t so real after all, dude The uniform velocity can not be detected without looking from outside, but the uniform rotation about a fixed axis can be detected without looking from outside.
However, that being said Paperbackpages. I honor the man even though I did not understand most of the book. View all 10 comments.
He has a fynman sense for the dramatic, and will unveil a physical principle like a magician pulling a dove from a hat. The “now” is an idea or a concept of our mind, it is not physically definable at the moment, and we have to wait to observe it separated by distance in light time.
Essential reading for relativity enthusiasts of the weekend variety, I might add- the more academic ones might be better served by lectures given by the wild-haired maestro himself. No twentieth-century American scientist is better known to a wider spectrum of people than Richard P.
Frequent references to his three volume book, Lectures in physics is valuable for readers who are familiar with his work. His autobiographies and biographies have been read and enjoyed by millions of readers around the world, while his wit and eccentricities piszas made him the subject of TV specials and even a theatrical film. It is difficult to review these books, as their titles are so descriptive.
