Simple Nature

Simple Nature

Simple Nature is a physics textbook intended for students in a three-semester introductory calculus-based course. If you drop your shoe and a coin side by side, they hit the ground at the same time.

Why doesn’t the shoe get there first, since gravity is pulling harder on it? How does the lens of your eye work, and why do your eye’s muscles need to squash its lens into different shapes in order to focus on objects nearby or far away? These are the kinds of questions that physics tries to answer about the behavior of light and matter, the two things that the universe is made of.
