Origins and Explorations

These study notes were produced by the BP Educational Service in 1981 to provide students with information on the oil industry. After an illustrated description of the formation of fossil fuels and the build-up of oil in porous sedimentary rocks, the booklet goes on to explain how oil can accumulate in reservoirs...

Electromagnetism

This book on electromagnetism covers the electromagnet, meters, electric motor and dynamo, transformers, communication and the electrical system of a car.

The text begins by looking at the historical experiments of Oersted and Faraday on current flow and electromagnetic induction. Diagrams for an electric...

Radioactivity

This book on radioactivity covers detectors, the history of radioactivity, Rutherford and the nuclear model, half-life, nuclear decay, fission, and uses of radioisotopes.

The text shows some cloud chamber photographs for alpha and beta tracks and how these tracks can be deflected in a magnetic field. The...

Supersonic Flight

This book looks at supersonic flight.

The shock boundary caused by the abrupt change in pressure is explained with the aid of a diagram. The development of supersonic aircraft is explored, with a look at the overall efficiency of supersonic flight compared to subsonic flight. The effect of kinetic heating...

Electronics and A. C.

Electronics and A.C. is one of the titles in the series of ASE Lab Books that were published in the early 1970s for the Association for Science Education. Each title brought together the best of the teaching notes and experimental ideas from members of the association that had appeared in the ASE journal, School...
