Doing Physics

This book looks at 100 key ideas in physics. But physics isn’t simply a collection of ideas; it’s also a way of finding out about the world, from the largest astronomical scale to the microscopic world of the tiniest particles. The ideas of physics are a result of centuries of thinking, observing and experimenting. The theories physicists have developed over the years have been remarkably successful in explaining these observations. But many loose ends remain – and some loose beginnings, too. There’s always more physics to be explored, to be argued over and to be understood.
