Physical Science Experiments covers the two main areas of physical science: chemistry and physics. Physics is the study of the universe's foundational elements. Chemistry studies the properties of matter and how those foundational elements interact with one another. In this new volume, 20 hands-on activities promote interest in science and technology. The easy-to-replicate experiments include lessons about energy, heat, geodes, steam power, and infrared light.
