(Hard Cover) At the Isaac Newton school of driving every car is a laboratory on wheels and every drive an exciting journey into the world of physics. Parker's first lesson describes the basic physics of driving: speed and acceleration; why you get thrown forward while braking or outward while turning; and why car advertisements boast about horsepower and torque. Whether you or your students drive a Pacer or a Porsche, The Isaac Newton School of Driving offers better - and better informed - driving through physics. Written by Barry Parker, professor emeritus of physics and noted author. Special Member Pricing! Product Code NB - 34
