Physics for Gearheads: An Introduction to Vehicle Dynamics, Energy, and Power
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. 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. Physics for Gearheads not only explains physics principles in language you can understand, it demonstrates how to use physics to your advantage. Available from April.
