We’re pleased to say that St Catherine’s College picked up multiple awards at the event.

The Simple Physics of Energy Use (OUP, 2017)

As a society we use energy for climate control and lighting in buildings, moving people and goods from one place to another and making things. This book uses simple classical physics (mechanics, thermodynamics and electromagnetism) to quantitatively review sources of energy and how we use them.

Trace Elements

Trace Elements (Valley Press, 2018)
