Book Description

This comprehensive volume provides an authoritative treatment of three major areas of study in physical science: astronomy, physics, and chemistry. Students learn about astronomy’s origins in Egypt, the physical theories that emerged in ancient Greece, the influence of Ptolemy and Aristotle, and the discoveries of the scientific revolution, including Galileo’s telescopic explorations and scientists’ findings in mechanics and optics. Readers consider the impact of Newtonian theory, developments in electricity and magnetism, the Big-Bang model, evolution of stars and formation of chemical elements, radioactivity, quantum mechanics, black holes, and the identification of the Higgs boson by the Large Hadron Collider in 2013.
