I think I need to read it again! Though written in Feynman’s casual, conversational style, the book never fails to make your head spin, and it’s fun to put the book down on your chest in the middle of a chapter and think about how your reality ain’t so real after all, dude Highly recommended to all readers interested in physics of reality.
Jan 21, Abdulrahman Kauther rated it it was amazing. Thus an event “right now” can not be defined, it is a mystery, because we are not affected by it right now, but can be affected later after eight minutes.
The book is a series of lectures intended for second-year Physics students at Caltech, so do not despair if you cannot grasp every single idea in the book. You can likely make it through it and learn things even if you have difficulties with the math. The example of page 64 establishes that simultaneity is not a unique thing in the universe, because it means different things to different observers. However, due to the subject of this book, it does demand a certain aptitude and effort from the reader it is not-so-easy as the name honestly suggests.
Richard P. Feynman
During his lifetime and after his death, Feynman became one of the most publicly known scientists in the world. No trivia or quizzes yet. What a phenomenal exposition of the mysteries of science. Oops, now we are supposed to know what a Lagrangian is to understand the significance of what he has done, generating classical mechanics purely from optimizing proper time in relativity. I am one of them when it comes to this book.
The target audience of this book is the interested layman with high school mathematics knowledge and a passion for physics: Nov 14, CV Rick rated it really liked it Shelves: Despite it’s small size, not many would consider it light reading, however, if one is genuinely looking to learn something about the wonders and intricacies of our universe and how it operates, Feynmann remains an excellent teacher.
Because the books originated in a serious physics course, but have been selected for accessibility, they fall into that vague territory that lies between popular science and science proper. Pieazs has no patience for formalisms or conventions; he is anything but pedantic.

It requires undergraduate level physics, but comes with easy to follow instructions from the great maestro himself. This gate is very elaborate, with lots of gables and beautiful carving and lots of columns and dragon heads and princes carved into the pillars, and so on. However, the main thing is that I learned that this man was unique in that he was brilliant and could teach also. In a few short lessons, he showed me what had taken months at university to understand.
I especially recommend chapters 3 and 4 for a quick appreciation of the subject: My Algebra, Trigonometry, and Vector Analysis skills are very rusty. Thanks for telling us about the problem. We might like to turn the idea around and think that the true explanation of the near symmetry of nature is this: However, the chapter on Curved Space was superb. The first book is aimed at the layperson; this book is aimed at the mathematically inclined layperson.
In this volume he tackles some of the trickier subjects in physics. Feynman is a wonderful teacher, who can get right to the core of topic with amazing clarity, and he has the gift to make even the potentially most complex concepts seem like the most obvious and commonsensical thing.
If that doesn’t scare you, or if you have the will and the patience to give i For all of those who took introductory college level physics courses once upon a time, and wish to know more about the development of the science during the 20th century, this is a very authentic introduction.
Owing to their short length and numerous omissions, they are not meant to give the reader a rigorous introduction to the subject; nor are they, on the other hand, mere titillating anecdotes or strained analogies.
Learn Relativity feynnman the maestro Richard Feynman himself In the introduction to this book, Roger Penrose, another great theoretical physicist of our times, states that “Relativity is not airy-fairy philosophy, nor is space-time mere mathematical formalism. But to do that we need to move the projectile up quickly, which slows down its time. In summary, this is a jewel descargad a little book that I thoroughly enjoyed and which deserves a full 5-star rating. He starts slowly, even simplistically with a discussion of symmetry and builds one upon the other taking the reader through piezaz relativistic topics and finally concluding with a fantastic description of space-time geometry.
He gives you the general principle, and then walks you through an example. Calculating the optimum rate generates the Lagrangian for the difference between kinetic and potential energy, from which we can derive the laws of classical mechanics.
This book, as well as its companion, Six Easy Piecesis a book that can judged by its cover. However, having said that, I would still recommend this book even to a more intermediate level reader, as the way how Feynman manages to get to the core of things with lucid rigor, and simplicity, and how he manages to holistically connect all the different aspects of the physics he is explaining, is something magic and a great pleasure to experience.
Similar to QED in terms of level of physics knowledge needed. Jul 23, Kenny Parnell rated it it was amazing. When we look at an object, we find that it has an apparent width and depth, but they are not fundamental properties of the object, because if we look at it from a different frame of reference it would look different. Not a hard read because it’s broken up into small chunks, but hard to absorb–heavy on derivations which are sometimes interesting but dfscargar a lot of brainpower.
