Work, Energy, and Power Hey! Ever wonder how much ice cream it would take to power a machine that would teleport you to the top of Mount Everest? This book answers this question and other much less silly questions, too.
Energy is a really interesting concept in basic physics that can be used to calculate all kinds of things. Often times it's easier to use energy than other strategies that involve kinematics or Newton's Laws.
If you're taking AP Physics, or basic college physics, this book will be a great introduction for you.
This book is different from other physics books because it uses a lot fewer words. Concepts are presented visually, and after each concept there are worked examples and practice problems. Also included are links to fun science experiments, youtube videos, articles, and flashcards. Because physics is a lot of fun to do.
This book would also be a great review tool if you wanted to start with the practice problems and then read the explanations if you get stuck.
