      My favorite moment in all of WKRP. Y'know that was a REALLY good show! If you want to learn about the Atom you need go no further! But Hans Christian von Baeyer, a physicist at the College of William and Mary in Virginia, makes a good stab at explaining the state of affairs in “Taming the Atom,” a book that traces atomic.

    Explaining Physics emphasizes the applications and social effects of physics, and extends its treatment of energy and electronics. * Introductory page to each unit to bring out the relevance of the material to everyday life * Simple questions at the end of each unit to consolidate learning * 4/5(9). Science Books for Younger Readers; Explaining the Atom. Feb. 24, HERE is a book that catches the eye. Jacket, binding, typography, and a host of illustrations extend an irresistible.

    It has created modern science with its many benefits for mankind. In this sense our book tries to make it clear to you that we can indeed look upon the atom as our friend. The prologue sets the stage for the duality of atomic energy and the book’s choice to focus on the positive: Deep in the tiny atom lies hidden a tremendous force. Some matter is either smaller or larger than an es of chemical species that are not typically considered atoms includes particles that are components of atoms: protons, neutrons, and electrons. Molecules and compounds consist of atoms but are not themselves es of molecules and compounds include salt (NaCl), water (H 2 O) and methanol (CH 2 OH).

An atom is like a very small, round cloud, by itself too small to see. This cloud is tough enough to join many other atoms of different round shapes to make things that we can feel - like animals, plants, rocks, air and water.

Pretend(!) that atoms were blown up to the size of toy balloons. Concept of the Atom. From the ancient Greeks through today, we have pondered what ordinary matter is made of. To understand the problem, here is a simple demonstration from a book entitled "The Extraordinary Chemistry of Ordinary Things, 3rd Edition" by Carl H.
