There is no better way to learn physics than by having a problem to solve As a gearhead you have a secret advantage when it comes to understanding physics you see it at work every time you solve a problem with your car or watch a motorsports event The experience you already have tuning cars or motorcycles is your virtual physics lab Physics for Gearheads will show you that if you can learn about cars you can learn about physics Whether your interest is in increasing your engine s horsepower getting more miles per gallon or shaving tenths off your lap time on track day you can use physics to gain insight into the problem and formulate a solution Physics for Gearheads not only explains physics principles in language you can understand it demonstrates how to use physics to your advantage Note on the units of measurement used in Physics for Gearheads This book outfits the reader to work in SI or British Engineering units Chapters1 A Warm Up Lap2 Kinematics Basics3 Kinematics Applications4 Dynamics Basics5 Forces6 Dynamics Applications7 Torque Force Resolution and 2 D Vectors8 Angular Dynamics Basics9 Angular Dynamics Applications10 Dynamics in a Plane Basics11 Dynamics in a Plane Applications12 Energy Basics13 Energy Applications14 Power Basics15 Power Applications16 Statics and Quasi Statics Basics17 Statics and Quasi Statics ApplicationsRandy Beikmann is an automotive engineer working at the top of the industry And he loves physics Through his masterful teaching physics doesn t look foreign it looks like common sense
