In a few short lessons, he showed me what had taken months at university to understand.

We have grown up in a facules world that we understand somewhat, and it’s not easy to grasp relativity, curved space, of space-time, let alone curved space-time. There is a gate in Japan, a seiz in Neiko, which is sometimes called by the Japanese the most beautiful gate in all Japan; it was built in a time when there was great influence from Chinese art.

Please add cover 4 22 Oct 14, Thus for an observer moving under uniform velocity will not know he is in motion. But even though he often relies on such abstract things as conservation or symmetry laws, he manages to be thoroughly concrete in his explanations.

But even if you aren’t able to understand the mathematics of the concepts discussed, the consequence of the theories discussed is spectacular and it is worth knowing about the weird ways in which nature works.

And, to be honest, I do not see much value in the first two chapters of the book, which are not much more than a very cursory introduction to mathematical objects that anybody should have learned in high school anyway apart maybe from the concept of “symmetry” – maybe this space could aeis been used more efficiently by getting into some more piwzas in other areas.



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. This book, as well as its companion, Six Easy Piecesis a book that can judged by its cover.

The introduction promises us an innovative approach to understanding physics. OK, fejnman was written in faclies, and maybe before that students were simply told to memorize the Lorentz transformation matrix. Requires, and assumes, knowledge of Std XII Maths and Physics- you’ll be pretty lost if you don’t know what the hell differentials and integrals are. The book really made me appreciate the power of mathematics and interpretation to determine the nature of the real world.

Feynman — —physicist, teacher, author, and cultural icon. Position and time measured in one frame of reference one observer is different from another frame of reference another observer. Later, he considers the best path to move a projectile between two points in a fixed amount of time, using only relativity theory. The first innovation appears to be the concept of relativistic mass.

No twentieth-century American scientist is better known to a wider spectrum of people than Richard P. One more book that needs to re-read. He gives you the general principle, and then walks you through an example.

But this is a book reviewing site, after all, so review them I must. 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.

He held the Richard Chace Tolman professorship in theoretical physics at Caltech. The notions that piexas flow of time is not a constant, that the mass of an object depends on its velocity, and that the speed of light is a constant no matter what the motion of the observer, at first seemed shocking to scientists and laymen alike.


He is a populist in the best sense of the word, in that he thinks, not that we ought to fsynman down our subject to reach as many people as possible, but that people will be interested and understanding if only we stopped putting on airs and spoke clearly. However, due to the subject of this book, it does demand a certain aptitude and effort from the reader it is not-so-easy as the name honestly suggests.

Nov 14, CV Rick rated it really liked it Shelves: He assisted in the development of the atomic bomb and was a member of the panel that investigated the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. Refresh and try again. But even if you aren’t able to understand the mathematics of the concepts discussed, the consequence of the theori The book like its successor is an amazing introduction to the wonders of physics. I swear, science is drugs! But, simple as Feynman’s language is, these concepts are hard for even a smart person to get his or her head around.

The book has the same style and accessibility as its predecessor but the maths can be difficult to follow. Jul 24, Vikas Datta added it.

I found it interesting that the descargsr 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.

Aug 15, Fazil rated it it was amazing. I look forward to spending some more time with him. May 12, Mike rated it really liked it.
