The Science of Baseball: Modeling Bat-Ball Collisions and the Flight of the Ball
This book describes the dynamic collisions between baseballs, softballs, and bats, and the intricate modeling of these interactions, using only Newton's basic principles and the conservation laws of physics. Veteran baseball science author Terry Bahill explains models for the speed and spin of balls and bats and equations for bat-ball collisions at a level accessible to high school and undergraduate physics students, engineering students, and, most importantly, students of the science of baseball. Unlike other, more technical accounts of these phenomena that exhibit similar rigor, the models presented in this volume use only basic physical principles to describe simple collision configurations. Elucidating the most important factors for understanding bat performance-bat weight, moment of inertia, the coefficient of restitution, and characteristics of humans swinging the bats, Dr. Bahill also explains physical aspects of the ideal bat and the sweet spot. * Explains how to select or design an optimal baseball or softball bat and create models for bat-ball collisions using only fundamental principles of mechanics from high school physics; * Describes the results of the collision between baseball and bat using basic mathematics such as equations for the speed of the ball after the collision, bat speed after the collision, and bat rotation after the collision; *Accessible to high school and undergraduate students as well as non-technical aficionados of the science of baseball. Dr. Bahill's book is the perfect tool for teaching how to solve some of baseball's basic science problems. Using only simple Newtonian principles and the conservation laws, Dr. Bahill explains how to model bat-ball collisions. Also, he derives equations governing the flight of the ball, and proceeds to show what factors affect air density and how this density affects the ball's flight. And as a unique addition to his fine book, he provides advice for selecting the optimal bat-a surprising bonus! Dave Baldwin, PhD Major League pitcher, 1966-1973, lifetime Major League ERA, 3.08 If I were the General Manger of a baseball team, I would tell my people to write a ten-page paper describing what this book contains that could improve our performance. I think the book provides the foundation for change.

The Steam Age
Respected transport author Julian Holland delves into the intriguing world of steam in his latest book, which is full of absorbing facts and figures on subjects ranging from Cornish beam engines, steam railway locomotives, road vehicles and ships through to traction engines, steam rollers and electricity generating stations and the people who designed and built them. Helped along the way by the inventive minds of James Watt, Richard Trevithick and George Stephenson, steam became the powerhouse that drove the Industrial Revolution in Britain in the late 18th and 19th centuries. The combination of abundant coal reserves, inventive minds, cheap labour and entrepreneurial spirit made Britain the world leader in steam technology. Britain also led the way with the evolution of steamships - from William Symington's Charlotte Dundas of 1803 (the world's first successful steam-powered boat) and SS Archimedes (the world's first screw-driven steamship) to HMS Rattler (the world's first steam screw-driven warship) and Isambard Kingdom Brunel's giant transatlantic steam-driven liners of which the Great Eastern was by far the largest. While steam in the factories and on the railways and roads is now a fading memory, it should be worth noting that much of our electricity is, thanks to inventors such as Charles Parsons, still generated by steam turbines in our coal, gas and nuclear power stations. Even modern nuclear powered submarines use steam turbines to drive their propulsion units. In Britain there is the most amazing steam preservation movement. Restored steam engines can still be seen at work on our waterways, roads and railways and at hundreds of steam events around the country. Julian Holland provides you with a full list of where to see historic steam locomotives and steam miniatures. Britain's world-beating steam heritage is still very much alive! Discover which steam locomotive holds the world speed record, find out how the operators of horse-drawn buses sabotaged London's first steam buses, and learn why Charles Parsons' revolutionary steam turbine embarrassed the royal family. Discover the answers to these and many other intriguing aspects of the steam age in this absorbing collection of stories and trivia. Brief, accessible and entertaining pieces on a wide variety of subjects makes it the perfect book to dip in to. The Amazing and Extraordinary Facts series presents interesting, surprising and little-known facts and stories about a wide range of topics which are guaranteed to inform, absorb and entertain in equal measure.

Electrical Engineering Materials covers the area of quantum mechanics that leads to the understanding of electrical behaviour of materials. The classification of material is based on energy band structure. This book clarifies that the conductivity of material is determined by mobile charge carrier concentration and drift mobility and the reasons for higher conductivity in metals and lower conductivity in semiconductors. The book also covers dielectric materials: polarization mechanism, temperature and frequency dependence, piezoelectricity and ferroelectricity. Starting from the elementary concepts associated with magnetism and latest developments in magnetic materials, it explains the concept of semiconducting material, their characteristics and formation of p- and n-type semiconductors. Similarly, the behaviour of pn junction under different bais voltages are described as also the principle of semiconductor material fabrication, purification of Si, doping mechanisms, the device fabrication along with different aspects associated with superconductivity, types of superconducting materials with update on latest development in the field of superconductivity.
