Why toast lands jelly-side down : zen and the art of physics demonstrations by Robert Ehrlich( Book )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 991 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Ehrlich recognizes that physics is often perceived as being highly abstract, user-unfriendly, and remote from everyday life. However, he has spent much of his career disproving these stereotypes. In the latest of his provocatively titled books, he provides a collection of simple physics demonstrations and experiments that will be extraordinarily useful to teachers and extremely instructive to students. Intentionally using "low tech" and inexpensive materials from everyday life, Why Toast Lands Jelly-Side Down humanizes key principles of physics."--Jacket

"If you are a student in one of the sciences or engineering who has taken a few introductory courses in physics and calculus, I think you'll like this book. That's because it looks at a variety of technologies in renewable energy, and explains things starting with basic principles. It avoids if at all possible technical jargon, and very mathematically advanced approaches found in many books on the subject. It is also not overly long, unlike many other energy books, and its 14 chapters should easily fit within a standard semester, at least in most schools in the United States"--
