Up for sale is a nice hardcover book that would be great for homeschool called Fun With Physics. By Susan McGrath. Published by The National Geographic Society. Book is in very good condition. No writing in book, no torn or missing pages. Pages clean and in nice condition. Book has 104 pages.
From Intro: "All aboard!" You've been standing in line for half an hour, gripping your ticket and listening to the whoops and screams of the roller-coaster passengers overhead. Now it's your turn. You settle into your seat. The car lurches forward. A chain pulls your car to the top of the first steep rise. At this moment, you're probably not thinking about physics. But watch how many examples of physics you'll experience. The moving chain runs on electricity. By pulling you to the top of an incline, the chain converts electrical energy to gravitational potential energy-stored energy you have when you're in a position to fall. Then gravity tugs on you. You're swooping down the steep incline, converting your potential energy to kinetic energy-the energy you have when you are moving. ...Physics is the study of energy and matter-and that covers just about everything under, and including the sun. If physics does not seem to relate to you, just think: Physics explains sound to musicians, color to artists, jumping to basketball players, speed to race-car drivers, light to photographers, ice-cream to ice-cream makers. This book divides physics into four parts and shows how it relates to your life: physics of fun, physics of the natural world, physics at home, and physics of sports.
