Product Description

In this book you will find some of the greatest and most useful formulas that the fields of physics, mathematics and economics have brought forth. Each formula is explained gently and in great detail, including a discussion of all the quanitites involved and examples that will make clear how and where to apply it. On top of that, there are plenty of illustrations that support the explanations and make the reading experience even more vivid.

The book covers a wide range of topics: acoustics, explosions, hurricanes, pipe flow, car traffic, gravity, satellites, roller coasters, flight, conservation laws, trigonometry, equations, inflation, loans, and many more. From the author of "Statistical Snacks" and "Physics! In Quantities and Examples".

4.0 out of 5 stars Watch out for mistakes! 3 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am enjoying the style of this book and its use of explanations plus worked examples but as with all text books on engineering watch out for mistakes. On location 634 at 38% there are numbers which are wrong viz: 24 x 6 =114, instead of 144. This mistake carries on to the next part of the example so is unlikely to be a typo. But overall it is good in my opinion, though not 5 stars

3.0 out of 5 stars Good as far as it goes 5 Jan 2014

Probably aimed at those who don't come into much contact with maths,which is fair enough. A further book might want to dig a bit deeper to show what maths can do, possibly explaining why , for example, you cannot really eliminate risk from trading, an illusion which helped land the world's economy in the present mess!

3.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what it says it is 13 Mar 2014

This is indeed a compilation of great formula's, I myself being an economist find his selection for economics a bit odd but I enjoyed the physics bit of it, It took me back to high school. I'm uncertain who I would recommend this to, I would guess, one of the disciplines in the title, because it helps put into context what your discipline has that differs from the other.
