Previews: How to Teach Physics to Your Dog
How to Teach Physics to Your Dog is a book that explains quantum mechanics in terms that even a dog can understand-- in fact, the dog does some of the explaining.
You can download a PDF (627 kB) of Chapter 1, on wave-particle duality. This describes how we know that light is a particle (as well as a wave) and the electron is a wave (as well as a particle), and why Emmy can't use her wave nature to go around both sides of a tree at the same time.
You can also watch a dramatic reading of the dog conversation from Chapter 3, on Schrödinger's Cat and the Copenhagen Interpretation:
You can also watch a dramatic reading of the dog conversation from Chapter 5, on the quantum Zeno effect:
Finally, here's a video that's not strictly book-related, but Emmy does make a couple of appearances, and it does cover some material from the book: The Bohr-Einstein debates over the philosophical implications of quantum mechanics, done with puppets. Dog puppets, because it's not easy to find a Niels Bohr puppet in the US:
More previews (other videos, etc.) will be posted here if and when they become available.
