The adventure of physics - on 1300 free pages
« on: 25/05/2006 16:22:37 »
After nine months, I have made
the new, nineteenth edition of the free Motion Mountain physics text
ready for download at

newbielink:http://motionmountain.net [nonactive]

Over 1300 pages lead through the whole of physics, from mechanics to
relativity, electrodynamics, thermodynamics, quantum theory, nuclear physics
and unification.

The nineteenth edition gives details on radiometric dating techniques,
explains how to destroy airplanes with thermometers, shows how to use the same
idea to measure the speed of bullets and that of light, presents a classical
system that obeys the Schroedinger equation, introduces Tesla coils, shows
that space-time has different properties in certain patent offices, tells how
to see effects from atoms using only a lamp and a piece of metal, gives more
details on clouds and jets of astronomic size, shows how to perform a
precision Michelson-Morley experiment, gives the latest results on the Pioneer
anomaly, introduces fusion reactors, demonstrates the chromatic lens errors of
the eye, and presents the simplest unsolved problem about the trefoil knot.

The text also provides improved writing, more figures, more curiosities, many
additional solutions to the challenges, and, thanks to the help of Martin
Elsaesser, the first embedded animation. Many thanks also to all those
readers who have suggested improvements and material for the text. An errata
page that allows direct feedback via the website is now available.

Enjoy.

Christoph Schiller
