The latest in Pomegranate's popular series of Scientific American Knowledge Cards, this quiz deck explores a set of fascinating physical concepts and phenomena of both classical physics (mechanics, thermodynamics, Newton's laws, etc.) and modern physics (relativity, wormholes, quantum mechanics, etc.) Learn what causes the ocean's tides to ebb and flow, why some things glow in the dark, and how much you would weigh if you suddenly found yourself at the center of the earth.
Each card has a question on one side, with a lucid, friendly answer on the other. This deck is an excellent classroom tool and a pleasure for the curious individual.
