Megumi is an all-star athlete, but she's a failure when it comes to physics class. And she can't concentrate on her tennis matches when she's worried about the questions she missed on the big test! Luckily for her, she befriends Ryota, a patient physics geek who uses real-world examples to help her understand classical mechanics-and improve her tennis game in the process! In The Manga Guide to Physics, you'll 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 master tough concepts like momentum and impulse, parabolic motion, and the relationship between force, mass, and acceleration.

The Manga Guide to Physics is part manga, part textbook, and covers all the basics of motion, including Newton's Three Laws, momentum and energy. It does so in a rather entertaining way, with... read more
So, The Manga Guide to Physics is actually a interesting way to get kids interested in learning Physics. Since manga, at least where I live is a currently a big fad for middle and high school kids. This manga and the other's created like it is a new attempt at making learning fun kinda like School House Rock Cartoons in my day. I believe they did a good job creating a likable yet educational story for that age... read more
