"Introduces typical problems associated with particle-particle, particle-surface, and surface-surface interactions, concentrating on solid phases dispersed in a liquid phase. Features a systematic presentation of the physical and mathematical models established over the last 50 years. Written to foster an understanding of how theoretical analyses are conducted in practical situations."

This history of physics focuses on the question, "How do bodies act on one another across space?" The variety of answers illustrates the function of fundamental analogies or models in physics, as well as the role of so-called unobservable entities. Forces and Fields presents an in-depth look at the science

Static Fields and Potentials describes two of the fundamental interactions in nature: gravity and electromagnetism. The book introduces the associated fields, potentials, and energies and explains the relationship among them. It shows how these interactions manifest themselves in different ways, from the formation of stars to the operation of thunderstorms.
