Explains fundamental principles of both sciences and shows how they relate to one another. The related concepts of energy and heat are explained in terms of their uses in both simple and complex machines. Also explained are the characteristics of liquids, gases, and solids, characteristics of sound, light, electricity, and magnetism, atomic structure, the periodic table of elements, and simple chemical reactions.


The Manga Guide to Physics
The Manga Guide to Physics

The book's story revolves around Megumi, a high schooler frustrated by physics class. Luckily for her, her friend Ryota is a physics genius! Ryota teaches her about Newton's laws of motion, vectors and scalars, and inertia, velocity, and acceleration. As Ryota explains classical mechanics, he uses real-world examples like rollerblading, juggling, slingshots, braking cars, and tennis to show the importance (and fun) of physics in daily life.
