    Hi guys,

    I'm looking for a book that will detail all the great science experiments (such as double slit, oil drop experiment, thompson's cathode ray) in a nice, detailed, chronological fashion, that can also be understood by non-science experts. Anyone got a good resource?

    A search of amazon.com for "great experiments" returned as the first result:

    Great Experiments in Physics - Firsthand Accounts from Galileo to Einstein $11.53 new, $4.88 used

    which actually sounds really interesting, and now I want it :biggrin:

    edit: just looked in the index, and all the ones you mentioned are in there
    editedit: on its way, lol
