College scholars within the usa have gotten more and more incapable of differentiating among confirmed proof added by means of clinical inquiry and the speculations of pseudoscience. with a view to support stem this hectic pattern, From Atoms to Galaxies: A Conceptual Physics method of medical Awareness teaches heightened medical acuity because it educates scholars concerning the actual global and provides them solutions to questions huge and small. Written through Sadri Hassani, the writer of numerous mathematical physics textbooks, this paintings covers the necessities of contemporary physics, in a fashion that's as thorough because it is compelling and available.

Some of you should know
. . . How did Galileo come to consider the 1st legislation of motion?
. . . Did Newton truly detect gravity in terms of an apple and an accident?
Or maybe you've mulled over
. . . Is it attainable for Santa Claus to carry all his toys?
. . . Is it attainable to turn out that Elvis doesn't stopover at Graceland each midnight?
Or might be you’ve even questioned …
. . . If historical Taoism relatively parallels smooth physics?
. . . If psychoanalysis can truly be referred to as a technological know-how?
. . . the way it is that a few philosophies of technology might suggest 650-year-old lady can provide start to a child?

No complex arithmetic Required
A primary textbook for undergraduate scholars now not majoring in physics, From Atoms to Galaxies examines actual legislation and their outcomes from a conceptual standpoint that calls for no complex arithmetic. It explains quantum physics, relativity, nuclear and particle physics, gauge thought, quantum box idea, quarks and leptons, and cosmology. Encouraging scholars to sign up for confirmed causation instead of dramatic hypothesis, the book:

  • Defines the usually obscured distinction among technological know-how and expertise, discussing how this confusion taints either universal tradition and educational rigor

  • Explores a few of the philosophies of technology, demonstrating how mistakes in our figuring out of medical ideas can adversely effect medical awareness

  • Exposes how pseudoscience and New Age mysticism advance unproven conjectures as risky possible choices to confirmed technological know-how

Based on classes taught by way of the writer for over 15 years, this textbook has been constructed to elevate the medical information of the untrained reader who lacks a technical or mathematical historical past. to complete this, the ebook lays the root of the legislation that govern our universe in a nontechnical method, emphasizing issues that excite the brain, specifically these taken from glossy physics, and exposing the abuses made from them via the hot Age specialists and different mystagogues. It outlines the tools constructed via physicists for the medical research of nature, and contrasts them with these constructed via the outsiders who declare to be the proprietors of medical method. each one bankruptcy contains essays, which use the cloth built in that bankruptcy to debunk misconceptions, make clear the character of technological know-how, and discover the historical past of physics because it pertains to the advance of principles. Noting the wear incurred by means of complicated technology and know-how, the ebook strives to aid the reader to emphatically demarcate the 2, whereas in actual fact demonstrating that technological know-how is the one aspect in a position to advancing technology.
