Human beings by nature are curious and science helps to appease our inquisitiveness. The understanding of basic physics is foremost in the modern world leading to advancement in science and technology perpetually. This book provides an insight to key concepts to physics ranging from classical to quantum mechanics, and introducing the physics behind everyday technologies of AC, refrigerators, wireless communication, CCD camera, etc. The beauty of the book lies in the fact that it makes the learning of physics enthralling without going into much of the mathematics. For those who are mathematically inclined, each chapter is followed by a set of problems which deepen the ideas introduced in the chapter, and helps make connections between basic physics and seemingly advanced concepts.
