Follow alongside Megumi as she learns about the physics of everyday objects like roller skates, slingshots, braking cars, and tennis serves. In no time, you'll learn how to apply Newton's three laws of motion to real-life problems, determine how objects will move after a collision, draw vector diagrams and simplify complex problems using trigonometry, and calculate how an object's kinetic energy changes as its potential energy increases. If you're mystified by the basics of physics or you just need a refresher, The Manga Guide to Physics will get you up to speed in a lively, quirky, and practical way.
