Physics of Natural Phenomena

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello, everybody:

I was wondering if you knew if there is a book, journal, webpage or a compendium of some sort in which different and diverse curious common and uncommon natural phenomena are explained with physics (preferably with math involved). For example, a place where to look if I'm interested in why glasses break with very high frequency sounds or if I want the physics explanation of why the sky is blue or of the curveball in baseball.

Thanks!!

There's an old book by Jearl Walker called the Flying Circus of Physics which now has a website:

http://www.flyingcircusofphysics.com/

that explains everyday things but without much math. I guess that would be left to the student.
