This 13-year-old boy's book simplifies theories of Physics
Aditya M P, the 13-year-old author of My Concepts on Physics speaks about his book that is simple, short and suitable for high school kids
Meet Aditya M P, a 13-year-old from Bengaluru who recently released his very own book. A teenager writing a book? Must be some sort of kids' adventure book, right? Wrong! Titled My Concepts on Physics, this 41-page book has a total of 10 chapters where Aditya has explained different physics concepts in his own words and using his own examples. The chapters include concepts like why a circular structure moves faster, spinning gives enough weight balance, the reflection of light, the theory of fast is slow, reversing time, frequency breaking point, force tension, how a wave travels, understanding area for objects and the theory of reflected area.
Aditya feels that there are many books that explain concepts of physics. However, it is difficult for children to read and understand them. So, he took to writing this book and has explained these concepts in a simple way so that school kids can understand. He explains, "When I travelled by flight for the first time to Kochi, I was shocked at the speed of the flight. My father explained the concept and that's how I took an interest in Physics. Similarly, I learnt the theory of relativity by one of the world's most famous scientists, Albert Einstein. This led me to discover many other theories and include them in the book."
When we ask him to explain one of the concepts, Aditya chooses to explain why a circular structure moves faster. "What better object to explain this concept than a wheel. If you observe wheels, you will understand that they do not have a structural gap in its shape and is a closed structure. So for anything to move faster, it needs its own structural shape that can create friction on the ground. There is another concept of how spinning gives weight balance. For this, we must divide a wheel into different segments and there is some weight in each of these segments that help give balance while spinning." Amazing, right? The pictures and simple diagrams in his book make it more unique and fun to read. Aditya who took the help of his father to write this book and then sell it on Amazon is planning to write his next book on black holes and publish it soon. He is all set to buy a telescope so that he can observe space and write his theories in this book.
