Essential Elements by Matt Tweed

Book Description

For anyone interested in the tiny building blocks of our universe, Matt Tweed-the illustrator of "Useful Mathematical & Physical Formulae"-offers a fascinating introduction to the complex and beautiful world of the elements. Tweed reveals the principal properties and interactions of substances familiar (carbon, oxygen, water) and unfamiliar (rare earth elements and subatomic particles). He explains atomic bonding, radioactivity, and DNA, and presents alternative ways of visualizing the periodic table, as well as a succinct synthesis of the Big Bang. Scientists and laymen alike will be entranced.
