Review: Encyclopedia of Physics is a fine contribution to the scientific literature, articulated at a level and presented in a format ideal for high school and college students and general readers. In addition to aspects of pure physics - such as light, sound, movement, and force - the book also provides information on applied physics, astrophysics, biophysics, chemical physics, geophysics, and medical physics, as well as general concepts, laws, principles, theories, experiments, and observations." "With more than 600 cross-referenced entries, the encyclopedia features 11 essays, interspersed throughout the text, that discuss the partnership of physics and mathematics, the universe, metaphysics, the operation of physics, and other topical issues. Enhanced by nearly 200 black-and-white illustrations, photographs, and charts.
