Praise for the previous edition:

"...presents a great deal of very useful information in a concise and entertaining way...a wonderful addition to a science classroom library or useful as reference or enrichment material..."—NSTA Recommends

Energy is the central concept of physics. Unable to be created or destroyed but transformable from one form to another, energy ultimately determines what is and isn't possible in our universe. Energy, Third Edition gives readers an appreciation for the limits of energy and the quantities of energy in the world around them. This fascinating eBook explores the major forms of energy: kinetic, potential, electrical, chemical, thermal, and nuclear. Each succinct chapter is centralized around a single quantity of energy—for instance, the potential energy in Lady Liberty's torch or the chemical energy in a bag of sugar—making Energy, Third Edition a uniquely engaging resource for physics students.
