Zoom in on Simple Machines

All complex machines are made up of simple machines. But what are simple machines? Readers take a hands-on approach to learning what simple machines are, how they work, and where they are used. Each book explains the fundamentals of elementary physics as they apply to the mechanical benefits of each machine. Concepts are illustrated with labeled diagrams and full-color photos. Real-world examples and easy, hands-on experiments give readers the chance to apply the physics concepts for themselves. (ISBN: 978-0-7660-6674-8)
