Description

If you think a negative charge is something that shows up on your credit card bill - if you imagine that Ohm's Law dictates how long to meditate - if you believe that Newtonian mechanics will fix your car - you need The Cartoon Guide to Physics to set you straight. You don't have to be a scientist to grasp these and many other complex ideas, because The Cartoon Guide to Physics explains them all: velocity, acceleration, explosions, electricity and magnetism, circuits - even a taste of relativity theory - and much more, in simple, clear, and, yes, funny illustrations. Physics will never be the same!
