Wow! How? Few techniques are as effective at generating interest in science as dramatic demonstrations. This fully illustrated sourcebook describes eighty-five physics demonstrations suitable for performance both inside and outside classrooms. These demonstrations will fascinate and amaze while teaching the wonders and practical science of physics. Videos for the demonstrations are online at http://physicsdemonstrationsvideos.com/.

Dr. Sprott shares demonstrations tested over many years in his popular public lectures on "The Wonders of Physics," which appeal to general audiences and to students from grade school to graduate school. Science teachers at all levels will find a wealth of detail showing how to present these demonstrations to students with flair. Science professionals will find indispensable information for creating educational and entertaining public programs. Organized to teach the six major areas of classical physics-motion, heat, sound, electricity, magnetism, and light-Physics Demonstrations includes:a brief description of each demonstrationmaterials lists, with sources for common materialspreparation proceduresdiscussions of the physics principles demonstratedpotential safety hazardsreferences for further information.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Should be placed in the libraries of all college physics departments and would be useful for many high school physics programs. Physics Today
"
Professor Sprott is a master of his trade and a true inspiration to all who perform physics demonstrations. Thorough and well-organized, this book shows how it should be done. David Willey, Mad Scientist for the Tonight Show
"
Jaws dropped, eyes widened, and hair literally stood on end as [Sprott] produced neon liquids that defied gravity, a levitating ball, a liquid nitrogen cannon, and a human light bulb. Wisconsin State Journal"
