Download e-book for kindle: A Survey of Physical Theory [a.k.a. A Survey of Physics] by Max Planck

By Max Planck

The e-book is a compilation of Max Planck's essays in line with an unique German assortment from 1922, released as 'Physikalische rundblicke. Gesammelte reden und aufsätze'.
The first variation of the English model was once initially released in 1925 as 'A Survey of Physics', and reprinted by means of Dover due to the fact 1960 lower than the identify 'A Survey of actual Theory'. The variation on which the resource experiment is predicated isn't dated, and next to 1960.

The ebook is a part of a five volumes [UL] 'series' of Max Planck's essays at the philosophy of physics to be had in English on P2P venues. In approximate chronological order, the 'series' includes of:

Download PDF by Andrew Thomas: Hidden In Plain Sight 2: The Equation of the Universe

You by no means knew theoretical physics can be so simple!

Why do issues circulate? Why is the growth of the universe accelerating? Is the universe a black gap? This interesting ebook considers the various inner most and most vital questions in physics.

Enjoy an exhilarating intergalactic travel as Andrew Thomas redefines the strength of gravity and introduces a courageous new view of the universe!


"Hidden in undeniable Sight 2" is an informative theoretical physics publication that appears at a potential strategy to the unsolved mysteries at the back of gravity, darkish power, and black holes. i discovered this booklet to be both and in a few respects much more attention-grabbing than his prior booklet, "Hidden In simple Sight". during this rendition, Dr. Thomas seems to be at a number of unsolved difficulties in theoretical physics. once more, I'm now not a professional physicist and can't make any assertions to the validity of the theories offered during this ebook yet a minimum of I welcome the author's attractive and available technique that makes such books stress-free for the laypersons to learn. This bold 170-page booklet comprises the subsequent 9 chapters: 1. advent, 2. Gravity, three. Cosmology, four. darkish topic and darkish power, five. Black Holes, 6. The cleaning soap Bubble Universe, 7. Gravity Revisited, eight. tips to Create your individual Universe, and nine. Conclusion.

Download e-book for iPad: Einstein and the ether by Ludwik Kostro

Even supposing Einstein is generally credited with abolishing the ether idea, he really brought a brand new relativistic ether in 1916, constructing the assumption in his later works. This ebook relates the tale of Einstein and the rebirth of the ether, demonstrating how Einstein got here to reject the nineteenth century ether.

Una moderna presentazione della teoria della Relativit� Ristretta, specificatamente progettata in step with i nuovi corsi della Laurea Triennale in Fisica. Un testo essenziale ma autosufficiente, che adotta lo stile e il linguaggio delle lezioni svolte in aula, e che introduce alle trasformazioni di Lorentz, alla formulazione covariante dell'elettromagnetismo e alle basi della cinematica e dinamica relativistiche.

Example text

It draws up a programme of stately consistency and harmony, a programme surpassing all previous investigations directed to that end. Hertz is not satisfied with postulating that all Nature, from the mechanical 32 point of view, can be completely explained by assuming move­ ments of simple, similar particles, which build up the whole of the physical universe. He goes beyond Helmholtz’s conserva­ tion of momentum, in so far as he eliminates from the beginning the difference between potential and kinetic energy, and there­ by all problems involving the investigation of special types of energy.

The first great impulse was given by the discovery of the principle of conservation of energy, indeed, the mechanical conception has sometimes been identified with the principle of energy, particularly at the time of its discovery. This misunder­ standing was due to the fact that from the standpoint of the mechanical view the principle of energy is easily deducible; for if all energy is mechanical, the principle of energy is funda- 29 mentally none other than the law of vis viva, which had been known a long time.

I have occasionally noticed that conversely, attempts have been made to illustrate complicated fluid motions, such as Helmholtz’s vortex motion, by means of electro-magnetic analogies. What is the position with regard to the theory of relativity? It certainly makes very far-reaching claims on abstract physics, but its methods are convenient and universal, and, above all, give definite results which are comparatively simply formulated. O f the pioneers in this work we must mention first Hendrik Antoon Lorentz, who discovered the principle of relativity of 40 time, and introduced it into electro-dynamics without making any important deductions from it.
