By H. Fakhruddin.
This book is a compilation of ideas for 100 physics demonstrations and 30 hands-on activities that can be done on a shoestring budget using easily available and relatively inexpensive materials. Labs are grouped into mechanics, heat, fluids, electricity and magnetism, sound and wave motion, and light. Defy gravity with a slinky, use a soda can and paper to explore inertia, turn sticky tape into an electroscope, bend a laser beam with a sugar solution and more. Also included are some hysterical funnies and quotes from students' exams. 110 pp., spiral-bound.
