Product Description

Physics is the natural science that involves the study of matter and its motion through space and time and is an important subject to know if you want to understand how the world around us works. This cartoon guide is a great way to get a leg up in this subject.

This is an entertaining and engaging way to learn physics through a comic book.

Great for ages 11 and up!

Megumi is an all-star athlete, but she's a failure when it comes to physics class. And she can't concentrate on her tennis matches when she's worried about the questions she missed on the big test! Luckily for her, she befriends Ryota, a patient physics geek who uses real-world examples to help her understand classical mechanics-and improve her tennis game in the process!

In The Manga Guide to Physics, you'll follow alongside Megumi as she learns about the physics of everyday objects like roller skates, slingshots, braking cars, and tennis serves. In no time, you'll master tough concepts like momentum and impulse, parabolic motion, and the relationship between force, mass, and acceleration.

You'll also learn how to:

  • Apply Newton's three laws of motion to real-life problems
  • Determine how objects will move after a collision
  • Draw vector diagrams and simplify complex problems using trigonometry
  • Calculate how an object's kinetic energy changes as its potential energy increases

If you're mystified by the basics of physics or you just need a refresher, The Manga Guide to Physics will get you up to speed in a lively, quirky, and practical way.

    Love These!

    This is our 4th in this series and we love it! The characters are fun, it's over 200 pages long with about 1/3 textbook and 2/3 comic. This is a really great starting point for learning about physics. I really enjoyed it, and so do my 12 year old daughters.
