Newton's Gravity: An Introductory Guide to the Mechanics of the Universe by Douglas W. MacDougal
English | PDF,EPUB | 2012 | 442 Pages | ISBN : 1461454433 | 7.4 MB

“Newton’s Gravity” conveys the power of simple mathematics to tell the fundamental truth about nature. Many people know the tides are caused by the pull of the Moon and to a lesser extent the Sun. But very few can explain exactly how and why that happens. Fewer still can calculate the actual pulls of the Moon and Sun on the oceans. This book shows in clear detail how to do this with simple tools.
