ENERGY DOES MATTER by Emmerich; Gottlieb; Helstrom; & Stewart


Email this review


The second of the Westinghouse Search Books series, this brief book treats energy from the interdisciplinary points of view of the physicist, mathematician, and engineer. It focuses more than less technically on its basic manifestations, the laws followed by its different forms, and the efficiency of the fuels and machines that provide energy. The authors, all members of the Westinghouse Research Laboratories, have written a clear, dry text with supporting formulas and diagrams that could be of interest to technical minded young scientists with mathematical bents. Not for the general reader except for part three which gives an interesting if frightening analysis of what fuel-for-energy potential is left to mankind.
