A guide to the key terms in physics. This updated edition, as well as covering traditional areas such as conduction, Hooke's law and proton numbers, looks at modern developments, such as data storage systems and environmental issues.
The National Curriculum report on Science sets out attainment targets which bring new topics, such as earth sciences, materials science, data handling, environmental science and history of science into the secondary syllabus. This work contains substantial new material specially written to meet these targets. Whilst retaining entries on traditional physics topics such as conduction, Hooke's Law and proton number, entries on materials, environmental issues, data storage systems and satelites provide information relevant to the new demands of the National Curriculum. Also included are brief biographical details on notable physicists, and appendices of common abbreviations and symbols and expressions. In addition, the layout of the series has been redesigned for the new edition, and the text completely reset. Illustrations are now expanded upon in linked caption text, increased inter-entry spacing is easier on the eye, and running heads at the top of each page improve quick reference.
