Introduction to Quantum Mechanics for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Quantum Mechanics (QM; also known as quantum physics or quantum theory), including quantum field theory, is a fundamental branch of physics concerned with processes involving, for example, atoms and... More > photons. Systems such as these which obey quantum mechanics can be in a quantum superposition of different states, unlike in classical physics.< Less
Introduction to Probability for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Probability is the measure of the likelihood that an event will occur. Probability is quantified as a number between 0 and 1 (where 0 indicates impossibility and 1 indicates certainty). The higher... More > the probability of an event, the more certain that the event will occur. A simple example is the tossing of a fair (unbiased) coin. Since the coin is unbiased, the two outcomes ("head" and "tail") are both equally probable. Since no other outcomes are possible, the probability is 1/2 (or 50%), of either "head" or "tail". In other words, the probability of "head" is 1 out of 2 outcomes; the probability of "tail" is also 1 out of 2 outcomes, expressed as 0.5.< Less
Introduction to Plasma Matter for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Plasma (from Greek "anything formed") is one of the four fundamental states of matter, the others being solid, liquid, and gas. A plasma can be created by heating a gas or subjecting it to... More > a strong electromagnetic field, applied with a laser or microwave generator. This decreases or increases the number of electrons, creating positive or negative charged particles called ions, and is accompanied by the dissociation of molecular bonds, if present.< Less
Introduction to Planetary Science for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
A planet is a celestial body that: #1) is in orbit around the Sun, #2) has sufficient mass for its self-gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that it assumes a hydrostatic equilibrium (nearly... More > round) shape, and #3) has cleared the neighborhood around its orbit. Under this definition, Pluto is NOT a planet, but has been deemed a dwarf planet because it has not yet cleared its orbit. This definition is under discussion, particularly by members of the planetary science community, and it may yet be further refined.< Less
Introduction to Pi for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
The number π is a mathematical constant, the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, commonly approximated as 3.14159. It has been represented by the Greek letter "π" since... More > the mid-18th century. It is also sometimes spelled out as "pi" and pronounced as "pie". Being an irrational number, π cannot be expressed exactly as a fraction (equivalently, its decimal representation never ends and never settles into a permanent repeating pattern). Still, fractions such as 22/7 and other rational numbers are commonly used to approximate π.< Less
Introduction to Physiology for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Physiology is the scientific study of the normal function in living systems. Furthermore, it is focused on how organisms carry out the chemical, or physical, functions that exist in these living... More > systems. Since the function of a part is related to its structure, physiology naturally is related to anatomy, a term that can refer either to the internal structure and organization of an organism or any of its parts, or to the branch of biology that studies the internal structure and organization of living things.< Less
Introduction to Physical Organic Chemistry for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Physical organic chemistry, refers to a discipline of organic chemistry that focuses on the relationship between chemical structures and reactivity. The focus is on rates of organic reactions, the... More > relative chemical stabilities of the starting materials, reactive intermediates, transition states, and products of chemical reactions, and non-covalent aspects of solvation and molecular interactions that influence chemical reactivity.< Less
Introduction to Physical Cosmology for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Physical cosmology is the study of the largest-scale structures and dynamics of the Universe and is concerned with fundamental questions about its origin, structure, evolution, and ultimate fate. ... More > For most of human history, it was a branch of metaphysics and religion. Cosmology as a science originated with the Copernican principle, which implies that celestial bodies obey identical physical laws to those on Earth, and Newtonian mechanics, which first allowed us to understand those physical laws.< Less
Introduction to Particle Physics for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Particle physics (also high energy physics) is the branch of physics that studies the nature of the particles that constitute matter (particles with mass) and radiation (massless particles). ... More > Although the word "particle" can refer to various types of very small objects (e.g. protons, gas particles, or even household dust), "particle physics" usually investigates the irreducibly smallest detectable particles and the irreducibly fundamental force fields necessary to explain them.< Less
Introduction to Optics for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Optics is the branch of physics which involves the behavior and properties of light, including its interactions with matter and the construction of instruments that use or detect it. Optics usually... More > describes the behavior of visible, ultraviolet, and infrared light. Because light is an electromagnetic wave, other forms of electromagnetic radiation such as X-rays, microwaves, and radio waves exhibit similar properties.< Less
