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 gives readers an appreciation for the limits of energy and the quantities of energy in the world around them. This fascinating book 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 a uniquely engaging resource for physics students.
