For a few dollars, students can now get even with their science teachers.
All they have to do is challenge the professor with some of the subtle puzzles
in this fine little book.

A Book of Scientific Paradoxes and Their Solutions 26 May 2010
By Jan Peczkis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are a science teacher who wants to challenge your students to higher-level thinking skills, this modest-sized book is for you. The paradoxes will make you wonder about things!

For example, if you heat a ring made of metal, will the interior opening increase in size, decrease, or remain the same. [It will increase--which is why you heat the stubborn metal covering of a jar to help unscrew it.] Other questions deal with Archimedes, pendulums, the dangers facing a submarine sinking in sand or sediment, water movement in a coiled hose, gravity acting within a would-be Earth-orbiting hollow asteroid, and much more.

Each of the puzzles is typically a page or less long. Answers to each puzzle can be found at the back of the book. There is also a handy topical index included.
