This full-color, illustrated handbook uses comic book-style panels to explain the basics of using a breadboard; then it walks you through ten fun and educational projects. You'll learn-by-doing as you study the circuit diagrams and colorful drawings, working your way through each project. Bonus features include an "X-Ray" drawing of the inside of the breadboard and a guide to understanding resistor color codes. A solderless breadboard is the perfect platform for learning electronics, whether at home or in the classroom, because it can be used over and over again for different circuits. With the projects in this handbook, you will learn how to use a light sensor, a potentiometer, a diode, a 555 timer, capacitors, transistors, and more! You'll also be challenged to actively figure out what else you can do with the circuits you have built. Learn how to build the following circuits: Dark Detector LED Flasher Electric Cricket Breathing LED Banshee Siren Light Theramin Blues Organ Bike Signal Light Touch Switch Led Color Organ As you gain experience building the circuits, you'll also learn how to read schematics - the shorthand language of electronics. The glossary provides definitions and illustrations for terms that may be unfamiliar. There's no better way to learn than by making things yourself. In this booklet you won't be handed all the answers. You'll be encouraged to experiment, and you'll be asked questions that you'll have to try to answer yourself. Get started with your breadboard experiments today. Electronics is the perfect STEM subject because it touches on all the key components - science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Build your technical skills with this hands-on learning course!

Kids ask the darndest things . . . and here are the answers—all in one helpful book! Anyone who has ever been a kid, raised a kid, or spent any time with kids knows that asking questions is a critical part of growing up. Kids have curious minds and they come up with some very interesting questions. But the truth is adults don't always know the answers. The Handy Answer Book for Kids (and Parents) comes to the rescue. Written with a child's imagination in mind, this easy-to-understand book is a launching pad for curious young minds and a life raft for parents at wits end. It addresses nearly 800 queries with enough depth and detail to both satisfy the curiosity of persistent young inquisitors and provide parents with a secure sense of a job well done. It'll equip every parent for those difficult, absurd, or sometimes funny questions from their kids, such as Is there life on Mars? Do rivers ever dry up? Why are there wars? Is there such a thing as a funny bone? Why do dogs bark? Why is the sky blue? Why do people have to grow old? Why do people speak different languages?

Winner of a CHOICE Outstanding Academic Book Award 2011! Transistors using one electron at a time. Sunscreens made with titanium dioxide particles that look transparent to our eyes but block harmful UV rays. Nanometer-sized specks of gold that change color to red and melt at 750°C instead of 1064°C. Nanotechnology takes the unique physical properties of items measuring roughly 0.1 to 1000 nanometers and puts them to use. Such applications have made nanotechnology a hot topic, but the search for a true introductory resource usually comes up cold. Nano novices come from a wide variety of backgrounds, so an effective text must assume limited understanding of background material and not be overly focused on any particular area. Still, it must maintain scientific rigor and quality. Fitting neatly between popular science books and high-level treatises, Nanotechnology: Understanding Small Systems, Second Edition works from the ground up to provide: A detailed yet accessible introduction to one of the world’s fastest growing fields, understandable to members of a variety of disciplines A clear presentation of real-world examples and original illustrations, as well as hundreds of homework problems of varying types, including multiple choice, true-false, in-depth calculation, and essay (with complete solutions manual) A systems-based approach that illustrates how underlying areas of nano are assembled to create systems with unique functions and characteristics Comparing nanoscale and macroscale systems reveals the complex and fundamental differences between phenomena at different scales and uncovers the specific challenges and opportunities of nano. With its engaging and entertaining style, this book provides a gateway into an exciting and rapidly evolving area of science.

Hip resurfacing arthroplasty (HRA) using metal-on-metal bearings is an established but specialised technique in joint surgery. Based on the experience of leading experts in the field, The hip resurfacing handbook provides a comprehensive reference for all aspects of this important procedure. The first part of the book reviews and compares all the major hip resurfacing prostheses, their key design features, relevant surgical techniques and clinical results. Part two discusses clinical follow-up of the hip resurfacing patient, including pre- and post-operative examination, acoustic phenomena and rehabilitation. It also covers the use of techniques such as radiography and metal ion measurement, as well as bone scans, ultrasound, CT, MRI, PET and DEXA, to evaluate hip resurfacings. Part three reviews best practice in surgical technique, including the modified posterior and anterior approaches, as well as instrumentation, anaesthesia and revision surgery. Based on extensive retrieval studies, Part four includes examples of the main failure modes in HRA. The final part of the book includes patients’ own experiences, a comparison of HRA with total hip arthroplasty (THA), regulatory issues and relevant web sites. Comprehensive in its scope and authoritative in its coverage, The hip resurfacing handbook is a standard work for orthopaedic surgeons and all those involved in HRA. A standard work for orthopaedic surgeons and all those involved in HRA Reviews and compares all the major hip resurfacing prostheses, their key design features, relevant surgical techniques and clinical results Clinical follow-up of the patient is discussed
