Dictionary of the Physical by Cesare Emiliani

MathSchoolinternational.com contain houndreds of Free Physics eBooks. Which cover almost all topics of physics. To see an extisive list of Basics of Physics eBooks . We hope you like these books.

Dictionary of the Physical written by Cesare Emiliani , University of Miami. This dictionary consists of text and tables. All areas that are fundamental to understanding our physical world, and life within it, are covered. Included are physics (classical, relativistic, quantum, particle, high-energy); chemistry (inorganic, organic, physical); the geological sciences (geology, geophysics, oceanography, meteorology, paleontology, and related areas of molecular, genetic, and evolutionary biology); and cosmology (which includes astronomy, astrophysics, and the genesis and evolution of the universe). The text includes not only definitions, but also explanations, formulas, and data. Entries best presented in tabular form are found in the Tables section. Any unfamiliar term appearing in the text or the Tables is defined and explained in the text. Acronyms and abbreviations are spelled out, but their definition and additional material, if necessary, will be found under the full term. All entries in the text as well as all headings of the Tables are in strict alphabetical order, without regard to spaces, punctuations, or numbers appearing as part of an entry or heading. Greek letters are placed at the appropriate locations within the corresponding Latin alphabet. In case of a tie {a, a), precedence is given to the Greek letter. All quantities in both text and tables are given to the last significant, most recent figure.
