Motion and Mass: First Steps into Physics
by Roy McWeeny
Publisher: Learning Development Institute 2011
Number of pages: 107
From these simple ideas about mass and motion, and a few experiments that anyone can do, we can lay the foundations of Physics: they are expressed mathematically in the 'laws of motion', which form the starting point for the Physical Sciences.
