Summary
The perfect way to enjoy science from the sofa, Atoms under the Floorboards introduces you to the incredible scientific explanations behind a variety of household phenomena, from gurgling drains and squeaky floorboards to rubbery custard and shiny shoes. *Is it better to build skyscrapers like wobbly jellies or stacks of biscuits? *Can you burn your house down with an electric drill? *How many atoms would you have to split to power a lightbulb? Atoms under the Floorboards answers all these questions, and hundreds more. You'll never look at your home the same way again...
