Like its younger brother ("The Mechanical Universe") this "Beyond The Mechanical Universe" book is excellent. It's intended for first year university physics courses which use calculus. It covers the typical second semester topics

Like its younger brother ("The Mechanical Universe") this "Beyond The Mechanical Universe" book is excellent. It covers the typical second semester topics. However, it's more advanced than the first book and could have used a chapter or two on line and surface integrals. It does have one major shortcoming - only 1 chapter is devoted to light & optics

Beyond the Mechanical Universe: From Electricity to Modern Physics (Paperback). Richard P. Olenick (author), Tom M. Apostol (author), David L. Goodstein (author). This 1987 second volume of the Mechanical Universe studies electricity and magnetism, their relation to each other and light, and shows how the problem of light led to the special theory of relativity. Then, it moves on to modern physics, where particles may behave like waves and where some of the great verities of Newtonian physics appear less certain.

The Mechanical Universe. And Beyond is a 52-part telecourse, filmed at the California Institute of Technology, that introduces university level physics, covering topics from Copernicus to quantum mechanics.

The Mechanical Universe. The 1985-86 series was produced by Caltech and INTELECOM, a nonprofit consortium of California community colleges now known as Intelecom Learning, with financial support from Annenberg/CPB. His current project is C3P, which developed an inquiry-based curriculum for high school physics

This second volume of the Mechanical Universe studies electricity and magnetism, their relation to each other and light, and shows how the problem of light led to the special theory of relativity. Then, it moves on to modern physics, where particles may behave like waves and where some of the great verities of Newtonian physics appear less certain. Along with the first volume, this book is based on, though independent of, a public television series broadcast in the United States. Physics is presented as a human endeavor, with historical development forming a thread throughout the text. The prerequisites are minimal, only basic algebra and trigonometry since the necessary calculus is developed in the text, with physics providing the motivation. New concepts are introduced at the natural, logical point with many historical references to place physics in a social perspective. Many topics from twentieth-century physics are included. The book is attractively illustrated and will be a stimulating alternative to other, less-thorough treatments.

Like its younger brother ("The Mechanical Universe") this "Beyond The Mechanical Universe" book is excellent. It's intended for first year university physics courses which use calculus. It covers the typical second semester topics. However, it's more advanced than the first book and could have used a chapter or two on line and surface integrals.

It does have one major shortcoming - only 1 chapter is devoted to light & optics. Neither this book nor its predecessor covers sound at all.

Another excellent book is "Understanding Physics", 2nd edition by Michael Mansfield & Colm O'Sullivan. See my review. It covers more topics than these Mechanical Universe books by Olenick et al.

Excellent for a first-year physics course, especially when combined with the videos that are available online.

... of electromagnetics, perhaps not with the rigor of an engineering or
physics E&M book, but worth the time. I am going through it slowly and
enjoying the process.

A sound text with many excellent illustrations and logical, historical narratives. The physics problems are challenging and
thought provoking. It goes well with a calculator or computer course.

Thanks.

This is an elementary text on electricity and magnetism with some chapters on special relativity and modern physics. It is manifestly written for college students and has a strong historical bent. The explanations and discussions are very clear and the mathematical derivations are given in detail. This book is highly recommended for novice students who are studying electricity and magnetism. It is also very suitable for self-study.

The films and books in the 'Mechanical Universe' & Beyond series are ideal introductions into the history of physics. These would supplement traditional logical step-by-step approaches of physics texts.

Physics did not develop step-by-step linearly -- the gap between Archimedes' 'method by exhaustion' and Leibnitz's infinitesimal calculus is only a couple of conceptual steps -- but 1000 years passed historically. Aristarchus' heliocentric cosmos was a 'sidebar' in Greek cosmology -- it took about 1000 years to re-emerge as the Copernican paradigm.

Politics, social consequences and religious conflicts are obstacles to scientific paradigm shifts and technical progress. These are the historical contexts of scientific progress which can only be understood by histories of science like 'Mechanical Universe & Beyond'
