Summary
"In The Manga Guide to Physics, you'll follow alongside Megumi as she learns about the physics of everyday objects like roller skates, slingshots, braking cars, and tennis serves. In no time, you'll master tough concepts like momentum and impulse, parabolic motion, and the relationship between force, mass, and acceleration."--P. [4] of cover

Prologue: Does physics bother you? -- 1. Law of action and reaction : Law of action and reaction ; Newton's three laws of motion ; Scala quantities vs. vector quantities ; Equilibrium and vector forces ; Newton's three laws of motion ; Gravity and universal gravity -- 2. Force and motion : Velocity and acceleration ; Laboratory: Finding the distance travel when velocity varies ; Newton's first and second laws ; Laboratory: Finding the precise value of a force ; Three rules of uniform accelerated motion ; Adding vectors: the head-to-tail method ; The composition and decomposition of forces ; Newton's first law of motion ; Newton's second law of motion ; The orientation of velocity, acceleration, and force ; An object does not have its own force ; The unit for force ; Measuring mass and force ; Determining weight ; Understanding parabolic motion ; Using calculus to find acceleration and velocity ; Using the area of a V-T graph to find the distance traveled by an object -- Momentum : Momentum and impulse ; Laboratory: Difference in momentum due to a difference in mass ; Laboratory: Finding the momentum of a stroke ; The conservation of momentum ; Laboratory: Outer space and the conservation of momentum ; Real-world explorations of impulse ; Momentum and impulse ; Law of conservation of momentum for vectors ; Law of action and reaction vs. law of conservation of momentum ; Propulsion of a rocket -- Energy : Work and energy ; Laboratory: What's the difference between momentum and kinetic energy? ; Laboratory: Work and the conservation of energy ; Laboratory: The relationship between work and kinetic energy ; The conservation of mechanical energy ; Laboratory: The law of conservation of mechanical energy in action ; Laboratory: Conservation of mechanical energy on a slope ; Units of measuring energy ; Potential energy ; Velocity for throwing upward and height attained ; The orientation of force and work ; Finding an amount of work with nonuniform force (one-dimensional) ; Nonconservative force and the law of conservation of energy ; Colliding coins and the conservation of energy -- Epilogue -- Appendix: Making sense of units
