Knowing: The Nature of Physical Law

Michael Munowitz


This book interprets the book of nature for curious readers of all sorts, but especially for those looking to appreciate the power and beauty of physics without having to grapple with the mathematics. Hundreds of little diagrams take the place of the equations that physicists otherwise need to tell the tale. It is a tale, no less, of how the world is put together and how it works, of how the universe might have arisen and where it might be going.

Keywords: book of nature, Big Bang, classical mechanics, Newtonian mechanics, dark energy, dark matter, electricity, electromagnetism, universe, entropy, book of nature
