As the “Hello” in the title suggests, this reader-friendly guide introduces beginners, including school-age children, to physics as the foundation of all science. The topics covered in each chapter are explained through familiar real-life examples without requiring the memorization of theorems and formulas. The author employs his own original devices to lead the reader from elementary geometry to the measurement of gravitational acceleration, to calculating the orbits of celestial bodies, to the latest achievements in robotics. Part 1, “The Science of Shapes,” introduces the relationship between mathematics and physics; Part 2, “Theory of Gravity,” explains mechanics as the basis of physics; and Part 3, “Understanding and Applying Force,” surveys the properties, actions, and applications of force. The book is perfect for children, as well as adults looking for a refresher course in physics.
