Science book writers often explain and justify their purposes to the readers
through the prefaces of their book. Here only once does the author speak to the
reader with an individual voice. After that he or she vanishes from the work. In
prefaces, we have the opportunity to gain direct insight into the ideas of science
Waves crashing on the beach, the fluorescent jellyfish, the crystals, the sunlight,
earthquake and a sneeze… many questions
Snap a photo, and you are done – static electricity at work!
This eBook focuses on how physics and its properties are used to make our
everyday lives easy. The eBook originated as an attempt to collect the most
interesting facts and theories of physics in such a way so as to give the reader a
general picture of the basic view of phenomena; as it presents itself to the
scientists. Some chapters of the eBook are simple enough to be understood by a
teenager whereas others will require more concentration and further study to be
completely understood, however, a layman reader will not find any difficulty in
reading this eBook.
This eBook is intended for the general reader who has an interest in questioning;
it aims to develop an understanding of the important concepts of physics and their
The thought that I should write this eBook has been with me since the moment I
started to paint: the question arises.
Why is the sky blue? (p. 85).
My father was a physicist and he told me simply why the sky is blue? And what
makes the sunset red? That was quite interesting for me and I decided to study
physics. I realized how beautiful and elegant physics is!
How small acts have a big concept and a large things have a small theory!
I think this eBook will provide an interest about Physics to the readers, which
challenges our imaginations with concepts like relativity and string theory, and it
leads to great discoveries, like computers and lasers, that lead to technologies
which change our lives—from healing joints, to curing cancer and to developing
sustainable energy solutions.
I hope that this eBook will help a new generation of scientists and users of new
technology to solve complicated problems with greater understanding; and belief
that the publication of this eBook will enhance the spread of ideas that tickle the
I want to express my special thanks to my teachers, my tutors and my guide for
their extensive help and support.
