In simple language, these informative books offer explanations of the important concepts high school students encounter in science and physics classes. The series uses easy-to-understand examples throughout, to help students investigate and interpret scientific methodology, theories, and laws. Each title in the series covers a specific concept in physics, including the laws of motion and thermodynamics; kinetic and potential energy; gravity and magnetism; the characteristics of sound; and more. Colorful diagrams and photographs help to make this the perfect series for challenged high school students who might have trouble understanding required high school physics concepts. This clearly written book focuses on mechanical and electromagnetic waves and how they travel, transverse and longitudinal waves, the parts of waves, and the characteristics and behaviors of waves. It looks at the ways--including sonar, seismology, and radio astronomy--scientists gain understanding of how waves work, furthering their understanding of Earth and the universe. A clear and simple writing style coupled with relevant diagrams to illustrate the concepts covered helps students grasp concepts that might be difficult to understand using textbooks.
