Six Easy Pieces: Essentials of Physics Explained by Its Most Brilliant Teacher

#ad
Addison-Wesley Publishing #ad - Physics for Non-Scientist. From 1961–1963, at the california institute of Technology, Feynman, delivered a series of lectures that revolutionized the teaching of physics around the world. In these six chapters, basic physics, energy, Feynman introduces the general reader to the following topics: atoms, gravitation, the relationship of physics to other topics, and quantum force.

Feynman 1918–1988 was widely recognized as the most creative physicist of the post–World War II period. It is precisely this ability—the clear and direct illustration of complex theories—that made Richard Feynman one of the most distinguished educators in the world. With his dazzling and inimitable wit, Feynman presents each discussion without equations or technical jargon.

Readers will remember how—using ice water and rubber—Feynman demonstrated with stunning simplicity to a nationally televised audience the physics of the 1986 Challenger disaster. Six easy pieces, taken from the famous Lectures on Physics, represents the most accessible material from this series. His career was extraordinarily expansive.

Six Easy Pieces: Essentials of Physics Explained by Its Most Brilliant Teacher #ad - From his contributions to the development of the atomic bomb a Los Alamos during World War II to his work in quantum electrodynamics, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1965, Feynman was celebrated for his brilliant and irreverent approach to physics. It was feynman's outrageous and scintillating method of teaching that earned him legendary status among students and professors of physics.

Six Not-so-easy Pieces: Lectures On Symmetry, Relativity, And Space-time Helix Books

#ad
Basic Books #ad - No one—not even einstein himself—explained these difficult, or with more verve and gusto, anti-intuitive concepts more clearly, than Richard Feynman. His autobiographies and biographies have been read and enjoyed by millions of readers around the world, while his wit and eccentricities have made him the subject of TV specials and even a theatrical film.

The spectacular reception of the book and audio versions of feynman's Six Easy Pieces published in 1995 resulted in a worldwide clamor for “More Feynman! More Feynman!” The outcome is these six additional lectures, drawn from the celebrated three-volume Lectures on Physics. 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 of light is a constant no matter what the motion of the observer, at first seemed shocking to scientists and laymen alike.

Six Not-so-easy Pieces: Lectures On Symmetry, Relativity, And Space-time Helix Books #ad - Though slightly more challenging than the first six, these lectures are more focused, delving into the most revolutionary discovery in twentieth-century physics: Einstein's Theory of Relativity. No single breakthrough in twentieth-century physics with the possible exception of quantum mechanics changed our view of the world more than that of Einstein's discovery of relativity.

But, these crazy notions are no mere dry principles of physics, as Feynman shows so clearly and so entertainingly in the lectures chosen for this volume, but are things of beauty and elegance. No twentieth-century American scientist is better known to a wider spectrum of people than Richard P. Feynman 1918–1988—physicist, author, teacher, and cultural icon.

Princeton University Press #ad - Used book in Good Condition. Bloomsbury Publishing. Here feynman provides a classic and definitive introduction to QED namely, quantum electrodynamics, that part of quantum field theory describing the interactions of light with charged particles. Zee's introduction places feynman’s book and his seminal contribution to QED in historical context and further highlights Feynman’s uniquely appealing and illuminating style.

Celebrated for his brilliantly quirky insights into the physical world, Nobel laureate Richard Feynman also possessed an extraordinary talent for explaining difficult concepts to the general public. A. Using everyday language, and his renowned "Feynman diagrams" instead of advanced mathematics, spatial concepts, visualizations, Feynman clearly and humorously communicates both the substance and spirit of QED to the layperson.
