Liquids and Gases: Principles of Fluid Mechanics
Whether discovered after years of painstaking experimentation and study or in a flash of brilliant intuition, the laws of physics are used to explain how and why things happen the way they do. Through descriptions of great discoveries, simple experiments, and easy-to-understand definitions and explanations, this remarkable series introduces extraordinary scientists and reveals the secrets of our universe. Supports the national science education standards Unifying Concepts and Processes: Systems, Order, and Organization; Unifying Concepts and Processes: Evidence, Models, and Explanation; Unifying Concepts and Processes: Constancy, Change, and Measurement; Science as Inquiry; Physical Science; Science and Technology; and History and Nature of Science as outlined by the National Academics of Science and endorsed by the National Science Teachers Association.
