Part II: Specific Information for the How Things Work Sections:
[Todo: needs to be updated to correspond to the fourth edition of the book]
aWhile most sections appear in the book, How Things Work: The Physics of Everyday Life (Wiley, New York, 2001), some sections are available on the web. Click on the active links to view those sections in pdf format.
bI have found that some sections require more than one 50-minute class period. Topics that can be covered adequately in one class period are marked with a 1 while those that may benefit from a second class period are marked with a 2.
cI have included my lecture slides in two formats: PowerPoint native format (ppt) and Adobe Acrobat format (pdf). These lecture notes continue to evolve and I don’t claim that they are perfect. This version of the slides is circa 2004. Feel free to use them or modify them as you see fit.
