Motion Mountain - Fall, Flow and Heat: Volume I of The Adventure of Physics

1 Ungluer has Faved this Work

This book series is for anybody who is curious about motion in nature. How do hings, people, animals, images and empty space move? The answer leads o many adventures; this volume presents the best ones about everyday motion. Carefully observing everyday motion allows us to deduce six essential statements: everyday motion is continuous, conserved, relative, reversible, mirror-invariant – and lazy. Yes, nature is indeed lazy: in every motion, it minimizes change. This text explores how these six results are deduced and how they fit with all those observations that seem to contradict them.
