The Feynman Lectures on Physics, Vol. I: The New Millennium Edition: Mainly Mechanics, Radiation, and Heat (Volume 1)

The Feynman Lectures on Physics, Vol. I: The New Millennium Edition: Mainly Mechanics, Radiation, and Heat (Volume 1) Lowest new price: $9.00
Lowest used price: $26.29
List price: $45.00
Author: Richard P. Feynman
Brand: imusti

"The whole thing was basically an experiment," Richard Feynman said late in his career, looking back on the origins of his lectures. The experiment turned out to be hugely successful, spawning publications that have remained definitive and introductory to physics for decades. Ranging from the basic principles of Newtonian physics through such formidable theories as general relativity and quantum mechanics, Feynman's lectures stand as a monument of clear exposition and deep insight.

Timeless and collectible, the lectures are essential reading, not just for students of physics but for anyone seeking an introduction to the field from the inimitable Feynman.

Light: The Visible Spectrum and Beyond Lowest new price: $11.12
Lowest used price: $9.73
List price: $29.99
Author: Megan Watzke
Brand: Black Dog Leventhal Publishers

A visual exploration of the power and behavior of light, across the electromagnetic spectrum, and how it affects life on earth and everything in the Universe.
Light allows us to see everything around us, but humans can only see a sliver of all light, known as the electromagnetic spectrum. Here, Kim Arcand and Megan Watzke present the subject of light as never before. Organized along the order of the electromagnetic spectrum, each chapter focuses on a different type of light. From radio waves, harnessed for telecommunications, to X-rays, which let us peer inside the human body and view areas around black holes in deep space, Arcand and Watzke show us all the important ways light impacts us. An introductory chapter describes what light is and how it behaves, while hundreds of full-color photographs and illustrations demonstrate concepts and make for a stunning book that's a joy to read and browse.

Kimberly Arcand and Megan Watzke are award-winning directors, producers, and authors who have spent their careers in science and technology. Arcand is the visualization lead for NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, specializing in image and meaning research, and data representation. She lives near Providence, RI. Watzke is the press officer for NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, specializing in communicating astronomy with the public. She lives in Seattle, WA. They are co-authors of Your Ticket to the Universe and have written dozens of articles in print and online.

Particle Physics Brick by Brick: Atomic and Subatomic Physics Explained... in LEGO

Particle Physics Brick by Brick: Atomic and Subatomic Physics Explained... in LEGO Lowest new price: $17.64
Lowest used price: $17.69
List price: $24.95
Author: Dr. Ben Still PhD

A simple and entertaining introduction to the building blocks of the universe.

In 2014 the Lego® Group sold 62 billion Lego® pieces. That's 102 Lego® bricks for every person in the world. That's nothing however to the estimated seven billion billion billion atoms that make up each of us, let alone the between ten quadrillion vigintillion and one-hundred thousand quadrillion vigintillion atoms in the known observable universe.

Thankfully, understanding atomic and subatomic physics need not be infathomable. Lego® bricks are a great way to visualize the blueprint of the Universe, right down to its smallest elements.

Particle Physics Brick by Brick explains how and with what the universe came to be. It introduces the Standard Model of Physics, the "rule book" of physics which has been proven correct again and again since its mid-20 century development. Today, it is the gaps in the model that keep physicists busy.

In concise chapters, the book assigns to each atomic element a colored Lego® brick, such as neutrons, leptons, and quarks. By assembling actual or imaginary bricks and observing their relationships and interactions, particle physics becomes clear. The book opens with the Standard Model of Physics, the physicists and the discoveries made over history, and directions on how to use the book.

The chapters that follow are:

  • Building Blocks and Construction Rules
  • Building a Universe
  • Electromagnetism and QED (Quantum ElectroDynamics)
  • The Strong Force and QCD (Quantum ChromoDynamics)
  • The Weak Force and Breaking Symmetries
  • Broken Symmetry and Mass
  • Problems with Ghosts
  • Violated Symmetry
  • The Future.
  • Particle Physics Brick by Brick is a succinct introduction for anyone that wants to gain a basic understanding of the atomic world, its elements and how they interact. By using tangible substitutes -- bricks -- it brings the unseen atomic world into the realm of the visual.

    An Invisible Danger on the Rise

    You eat organic and non-GMO food. You only drink purified water. You take care of yourself and your family's health. But could there be a silent, invisible danger causing potential harm to you and your loved ones? There could. And it's called electromagnetic frequency (EMF) radiation and it's one of fastest growing health issues facing our society. EMF radiation produced by modern technology such as cell phones, tablets, laptops, Wi-Fi, and smart meters is an emerging health threat, and we are all guinea pigs in a giant experiment with many unknown consequences.

    But Aren't These Technologies Regulated and Safe?

    Surely the government and other regulatory agencies make sure these technologies are completely safe before they are approved for wide-spread use, right? Think again. Ninety-five percent of American adults use cell phones regularly. Most households have Wi-Fi. And even schools are increasingly becoming dependent on wireless devices. And yet none of these technologies have been proven safe to humans for long-term exposure.

    In fact, science confirms that the EMF emitted from common electronic devices can cause definite biological changes in the body, and mounting research has already shown it can lead to a long list of health concerns – some of which can be pretty serious.

    The explosive use of mobile devices only occurred over the last twenty years, yet we have only scratched the surface of what technology is yet to come. Children born today will be exposed to much higher doses of EMF radiation than those born just ten years ago. What are the ramifications and what can we do now to minimize the fallout?

    Is There a Solution?

    Fortunately, there are simple and effective steps you can take to minimize the risks of dirty electricity. Education is key. With a foreword by Bulletproof's Dave Asprey, Radiation Nation is info-packed with all the essential education you need to make smart choices to stay safe when it comes to technology.

    In Radiation Nation, you will learn:

    » The most practical precautions to protect yourself and your loved ones from EMF radiation
    » What EMF radiation is and how it affects the body biologically
    » The major health risks including fertility issues for both men and women, DNA damage, cell mutation, cancer and other serious health risks
    » The EMF sources of greatest concern
    » The latest scientific studies broken down by disease or condition
    » How EMF radiation specifically affects children and those suffering with electromagnetic hypersensitivity
    » Why the current safety standards for EMF are insufficient and need to be rewritten
    » Do stickers, diodes, harmonizers and other products marketing as protection have any grounding in science?

    Winner of the prestigious 2013 Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books

    “A modern voyage of discovery.” —Frank Wilczek, Nobel Laureate, author of The Lightness of Being

    The Higgs boson is one of our era’s most fascinating scientific frontiers and the key to understanding why mass exists. The most recent book on the subject, The God Particle, was a bestseller. Now, Caltech physicist Sean Carroll documents the doorway that is opening—after billions of dollars and the efforts of thousands of researchers at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland—into the mind-boggling world of dark matter. The Particle at the End of the Universe has it all: money and politics, jealousy and self-sacrifice, history and cutting-edge physics—all grippingly told by a rising star of science writing.
