The book like its successor is an amazing introduction to the wonders of physics. I did my best, and Feynman is always fwciles joy to read, piezae I probably won’t remember much about these topics tomorrow. And, to be honest, I do not see much value in the first two chapters of the book, which are not much more than a very cursory introduction to mathematical objects that anybody should have learned in high school anyway apart maybe from the concept of “symmetry” – maybe this space could have been used more efficiently by getting into some more detail in other areas.
Well, we cause some of the atoms well molecules in reality of descarrgar tea to get so excited and jiggly that they break away from the liquid and fly off into the air. He has no patience for formalisms or conventions; he is anything feynjan pedantic. Hopefully though continued exposure I absorb just a little at a time.
To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. But when one looks closely he sees that in the elaborate and complex design fyenman one of the pillars, one of the small design elements is carved upside down; otherwise the thing is completely symmetrical.
There are many websites that explains the transition from Newtonian mechanics to the theory of relativity to explain physical reality.

This book is good for those who want to know more about relativity. No twentieth-century American scientist is better known to a wider spectrum of people than Richard P.
One more book that needs to re-read. For his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics, Feynman was a joint recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics intogether with Julian Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga. And I would have loved at least a brief introduction to the concept of geodesics and of the stress-energy tensor and of tensors in generalwhich would have allowed at least a qualitative treatment of Einstein’s Field Equations.
Nov 13, Rajendra Dave rated it really liked it.
His efforts are strenuous in teaching and making the reader understand the basic concepts. Apr 09, Prooost Davis rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Want to Read Currently Reading Read.
Very appropriate title, especially if one has not read complete lecture series. Because fdynman books originated in a serious physics course, but have been selected for accessibility, they fall into that vague territory that lies between popular science and science proper.
Essentials of Physics Explained by Its Most Brilliant Teacher “, there was a lot more mathematical formalism that was a little tough to follow, but with patience could be understood.
But even if you aren’t able to understand the mathematics of the concepts discussed, the consequence of the theori The book like its successor is an amazing introduction to the wonders of physics.
Feynman developed a widely used pictorial representation scheme for the mathematical expressions governing the behavior of subatomic particles, which later became known as Feynman diagrams. Open Preview See a Problem? It also has some unique thought experiments for developing an intuition regarding relativity.
Feynman is a piexas teacher, who can get right dsscargar the core of topic with amazing clarity, and he has the gift to make even the potentially most complex concepts seem like the most obvious and commonsensical thing. Fxciles how can a series of equations predict the mass? View all 10 comments. Feynman is also quite a showman. As a Physics student, reading this book gave me a great advantage while taking courses on modern Physics.
And Feynman manages, almost in a magical way, to strike a reasonable compromise, within so little space, between accuracy and level of detail on one side, and accessibility on the other side. For all of those who took introductory college level physics courses once upon a time, and wish to know more about the development of the science during the 20th century, this is a very authentic introduction.
We have descarga up in a 3-dimensional world that we understand somewhat, and it’s not easy to grasp relativity, curved space, of space-time, let alone curved space-time.
He assisted in the development of the atomic bomb and was a member of the panel that investigated the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. Position and time measured in one frame of reference one observer weis different from another frame of reference another observer. The difference between spacetime, and space and the interval provides interesting sense of reality.

Lists with This Book. All of our ideas in physics require a certain amount of common sense in their application; they are not purely mathematical or abstract ideas. However, the main thing is that I learned that this man was unique in that he was brilliant and could teach also.
This is not easy reading if you’re not a physicist or a mathematician. Chapter after chapter, in a crescendo of complexity, the reader is ushered into one of the most fashionable, while the less understood Physics subject. But even though he ceynman relies on such abstract things as conservation or symmetry laws, he manages to be thoroughly concrete in his explanations. The book has the same style and accessibility as its predecessor but the maths can be difficult to follow.
No one has any idea why. I especially like the ant on the reverse hot-plate analogy. In Lorentz transformations descargat see is a mixture of space and time.
Jul 24, Vikas Datta added it. I swear, science is drugs! Similar to QED in terms of level of physics knowledge needed. Frequent references to his three volume book, Lectures in physics is valuable for readers who are dexcargar with his work. Want to Read saving…. Feynman is as enigmatic as usual and his descriptions are facilss and inspiring.
The notions that the flow of time is not a constant, that the mass of an object depends on its velocity, and that the speed gaciles light is a constant no matter what the motion of the observer, at first seemed shocking to scientists and laymen alike. This one was not-so-easy. For example, anything happening to Sun “now” will affect earth only after 8 minutes that is how long light takes to reach us.
The target audience of this book is the interested layman with high school mathematics knowledge and a passion for physics: Relativistic dynamics; objects moving at high fcailes during forward motion comparable to the speed of light shortens its physical length, and also time slows down time-dilation for the stationary observer, but the time remains the same for the moving astronaut.
