內容簡介

發現物理與日常生活的奇妙聯結
輕鬆理解物理學,善用物理定律,改變人生思維


物理學總是讓人退避三舍,但物理定律卻與我們的日常生活息息相關。就如同《蘋果橘子經濟學》,輕鬆將經濟學融入日常,本書也將帶領讀者走進一場奇妙及生動的物理學之旅。讓蠍子與自行車手足以生存的條件是什麼?生雞蛋和陀螺儀之間又有什麼相似之處?物理中提到的弦理論、流體動力學及生物物理學似乎只與科學家和物理專家有關,其實不然,物理學家海倫‧切爾斯基以生動有趣的觀點,分享物理是如何與我們的生活密不可分,以簡單明瞭的插圖及解說,精闢解析物理學如何影響人類生活。所有最難以想像的組合卻交互影響:爆米花與南極風、咖啡自與血液測試、蕃茄醬瓶子與外星人,所有最細微的線索都與物理無法分割。沒有繁瑣的方程式,作者帶我們輕盈穿越層層障礙,窺見科學與物裡深刻的精彩內涵。

What is it that helps both scorpions and cyclists to survive? What do raw eggs and gyroscopes have in common? And why does it matter?

In an age of string theory, fluid dynamics and biophysics, it can seem as if the science of our world is only for specialists and academics. Not so, insists Helen Czerski – and in this sparkling new book she explores the patterns and connections that illustrate the grandest theories in the smallest everyday objects and experiences.

Linking what makes popcorn pop to Antarctic winds, coffee stains to blood tests or ketchup bottles to aliens in space, every thread you pull in the fabric of everyday life shows you something new about the intricate patterns of our world.

Read Storm in a Teacup and you will see and understand the world as you never did before.
