Description - Eyewitness Science Matter by Christopher Cooper
Part of the "Eyewitness Science" series, this book provides the reader with a closer look at the world, starting from the ideas that the Greeks had about different forms of matter, and progressing to the investigations of scientists through the centuries, which led to more specific knowledge about the properties of solids, liquids and gases, and leading to the first ideas about atoms and modern atomic theory. The book demonstrates the original experiments, and explains the principles behind the major scientific inventions and concepts. Specially-commissioned photographs and text written by experts in their own fields make the most intriguing theories accessible. It captures the spirit of earlier ages by showing the original equipment and instruments used in scientific experiments. "Eyewitness Science" is a series of visual guides that opens up the world of science, and explains the principles affecting people's daily lives. All the fields of science are encompassed - from relativity to genetics - to build up into an encyclopaedic series. The reader is invited to step into the shoes of the scientists and relive the thrill of scientific breakthrough.
