This is the most popular dictionary of physics available, and defines all commonly encountered physics terms and concepts, as well as many terms from the related fields of astronomy, astrophysics, and physical chemistry. It is generously illustrated with over 120 diagrams, graphs, and tables and also contains biographies of important scientists. Appendices include SI units, the solar system, and the electromagnetic spectrum, plus a list of Nobel Prize winners and a chronology of key dates in physics. With over 200 new entries and full revision of the existing text, this new edition is as essential a reference tool as before for students of physics and physics-related subjects, and professionals.
