Problem-solving is the cornerstone of all walks of scientific research. Fascinating Problems for Young Physicists attempts to clear the boundaries of seemingly abstract physical laws and their tangible effects through a step-by-step approach to physics in the world around us. It consists of 42 problems with detailed solutions, each describing a specific, interesting physical phenomenon. Each problem is further divided into questions designed to guide the reader through, encouraging engagement with and learning the physics behind the phenomenon. By solving the problems, the reader will be able to discover, for example, what the relation is between the mass of an animal and its expected lifetime, or what the efficiency limit is of wind turbines. Intended for first-year undergraduate students and interested high school students, this book develops inquiry-based scientific practice and enables students to acquire the necessary skills for applying the laws of physics to realistic situations.

  • Bridges the gap between knowledge of physical laws and their application in everyday life
  • Deepens scientific understanding of everyday phenomena through active and engaged learning
  • Introduces a fresh perspective to the use of problem solving in physics teaching and learning
  • Includes Jupyter notebooks as an extension of individual topics, carefully designed to facilitate the interested physicist to further explore the problem
