Product description


'… the authors have done a grand job in collecting together some truly challenging puzzles … The solutions are explained in great detail, and that is a real strength … it is a book containing a number of gems and surprises …'. David L. Andrews, European Journal of Physics

'… a book like this … has long been needed and will be indispensable for teachers and lecturers.' Waldemar Gorzkowski, Physics World

' … a delightful book, which is both instructive and entertaining … intriguing,' Brian L. Burrows, Zentralblatt für Mathematik und ihre Grenzgebiete Mathematics Abstracts

'… a source of inspiration not only to exceptional school students and good undergraduates, but also to academics … buy this book even if you are not under the shadow of a 'general paper' - it is a lot of fun.' Trevor Bacon, The Times Higher Education Supplement

Book Description

This book will strengthen a student's grasp of the laws of physics by applying them to practical problems that yield more easily to intuitive insight than brute-force or complex mathematics. The questions are posed in accessible, non-technical language and should prove instructive, challenging and fun to all students of physics.
