Understanding Physics – Second edition is acomprehensive, yet compact, introductory physics textbook aimed atphysics undergraduates and also at engineers and other scientiststaking a general physics course. Written with today's students inmind, this text covers the core material required by anintroductory course in a clear and refreshing way. A second colouris used throughout to enhance learning and understanding. Eachtopic is introduced from first principles so that the text issuitable for students without a prior background in physics. At thesame time the book is designed to enable students to proceed easilyto subsequent courses in physics and may be used to support suchcourses. Mathematical methods (in particular, calculus and vectoranalysis) are introduced within the text as the need arises and arepresented in the context of the physical problems which they areused to analyse. Particular aims of the book are to demonstrate tostudents that the easiest, most concise and least ambiguous way toexpress and describe phenomena in physics is by using the languageof mathematics and that, at this level, the total amount ofmathematics required is neither large nor particularlydemanding. 'Modern physics' topics (relativity and quantum mechanics) areintroduced at an earlier stage than is usually found inintroductory textbooks and are integrated with the more 'classical'material from which they have evolved. This book encouragesstudents to develop an intuition for relativistic and quantumconcepts at as early a stage as is practicable. The text takes a reflective approach towards the scientificmethod at all stages and, in keeping with the title of the text,emphasis is placed on understanding of, and insight into, thematerial presented.

Centered Riding is not a style of riding as are dressage, hunter seat, or Western. Rather, it is a way of reeducating a rider’s mind and body to achieve greater balance in order to better communicate with the horse. Founder Sally Swift revolutionized riding by showing that good use of the human body makes a world of difference on horseback. Early in her work, she established what she calls the “Four Basics” — centering, breathing, soft eyes, and building blocks—which, together with grounding, are the main tenets of her method. When a rider learns and maintains these basics, then harmony between horse and human is possible. Sally Swift’s first book, Centered Riding, made its revolutionary appearance in 1985 and continues as one of the best-selling horse books of all time. This second book doesn't replace the first one, it complements it. In the intervening years, Centered Riding continued to evolve, and Sally inevitably developed many new concepts and fresh imagery, all of which are presented here.

Hovercraft Technology Economics And Applications

The amphibious versatility, marine speed and low footprint pressure have given the hovercraft a role in specialized applications. Among them are search and rescue, emergency medical services, military and arctic operations, icebreaking, patrol, law enforcement, ferries, and recreational activities such as racing. To meet these demands, the hovercraft has undergone considerable development since its inception. A comprehensive and timely review of the analysis, design, operation, economics and applications of hovercraft is presented in this volume by a team of highly qualified experts. The topics covered range from first principles to the state-of-the-art, with extensive references to current literature. The overall presentation is intended not to exceed the final year level of undergraduate engineering. The introduction and summary sections of all chapters are intended to give a qualitative grasp of the material covered without having to read all the technical portions. In varying degrees, the volume will appeal to managers, decision-support staff, operators, technologists, undergraduate students, and anyone entering the hovercraft field or seeking an introduction to it. It will also be of interest to design engineers, researchers and graduate students. Thus, this volume can serve as an up-to-date reference on several important aspects of hovercraft for a wide range of readers.
