Physics is…

The Physicist explores attributes of physics
F Todd Baker


He's back! "The Physicist" returns with a whole new set of questions and answers that explore the attributes of physics (practical, beautiful, surprising, cool, frivolous). The answers are responses to people looking for answers to fascinating (and often uninformed) questions. It covers topics such as sports, electromagnetism, gravitational theory, special relativity, superheroes, videogames, and science fiction. As with the first two books, there is a chapter of questions from people who think that "The Physicist" is a psychic, and from those who think they have solutions.
