This is the second book in the Ask the Physicist series. The main emphasis of this volume is providing an accessible introduction to quantum physics, atomic physics, and nuclear physics to anyone with at least a high school physics knowledge. It is based on the author's website, a site aimed primarily at general readers who are curious about how physics explains the workings of the world. Hence, the answers emphasize concepts over formalism, and the mathematics is kept to a minimum.

Although this is a book about topics in ""modern physics,"" it is impossible to appreciate both the roots of quantum physics and its applications without having an understanding of the nature of light, or more generally electromagnetic radiation. And to understand the nature of light, an understanding of electricity and magnetism is needed. To that end, Chapter 1 of this book will introduce the electromagnetic concepts required to understand the basics of light needed to understand the foundations of quantum physics.
