Kaye and Laby's tables of data, formulae, graphs, and charts are a go-to resource for scientists working in physics and chemistry. Topics include fundamental constants, fiber-optics, superconductivity, Raman spectroscopy, and more.
The NIST Chemistry WebBook provides access to data compiled and distributed by NIST under the Standard Reference Data Program. It contains thermochemical data, reaction data, spectral data, ion energetics data, gas chromatography data, and diatomic molecule constants.
Originally published by Smithsonian Institution Press in 1954, this classic reference source comprises 901 tables of common physical and chemical data. The information provided is broad in scope. It is of general interest to scientists and engineers, and of particular interest to those involved with physics in its larger sense.
The entire set of Richard Feynman’s classic Lectures on Physics, including all equations and diagrams. Richard Feynman, along with Robert Leighton, Victor Neher, and Matthew Sands, first developed the lectures in the late 1950s at Caltech. They wanted a way to introduce undergraduate students to “modern” physics topics, like relativity, atoms, nuclei, and the fundamentals of quantum mechanics. It was an offshoot of a broader movement after Sputnik to modernize the physics curriculum in universities. Feynman taught the complete course only once from 1961 through 1963. His standing-room-only lectures were full of undergraduates as well as graduate students and professors who snuck in.
The Newton project aims to gather all of Isaac Newton's writings into a single, freely accessible electronic edition. The edition presents a full (diplomatic) rendition featuring all the amendments Newton made to his own texts or a more readable (normalised) version. Although Newton is best known for his theory of universal gravitation and discovery of calculus, his interests were much broader than is usually appreciated. In addition to his celebrated scientific and mathematical writings, Newton also wrote many alchemical and religious texts and he left many administrative papers in his role as Warden and then Master of the Mint.
