Summary

Looks at the characteristics of natural and man-made structures and materials

"Structures & Materials" compares everyday materials and their fascinating properties.

Discover how liquids change into gases and solids to liquids through practical experiments and informative diagrams.

All around you will see objects that have been made from different materials and arranged in a particular way.

This book looks at the natural and man-made materials that make up our world - where they come from, what they are made from, and how they can be used to create structures that are useful to our everyday lives.

NOTE : First published in the series 'Simply Science' by Watts in hardback in 1986, and paperback in 1990. It was reissued in the 'Science World' in 2003. All are now out of print. The illustrations in this new edition have been updated.
