    Hardcover↠ Hot Carbon PDF ç carbon book, Hot Carbon eBook Hot Carbon sounded to be another hit for me Unfortunately it wasn’tThe facts presented are very interesting; I didn’t know much about Carbon 14 other than its use for age dating so I learned uite a few new things However all those presented are before the ‘90s For a book writtenpublished in 2019 especially a scientific one that’s a big minus in my opinionThe history of its discovery the way it’s found in nature and its applications are uite engaging For all that the way the story was told is another matter There are too many details not related to it not so interesting from my PoV and too few experiments And those which are presented are so stretched out that you forget what the experiment was about in the first place The writing is tedious I didn’t fin

    Hardcover↠ Hot Carbon PDF ç carbon book, Hot Carbon eBookThis is a book for those with a background in math and chemistry maybe general sciences would work as well As a humanities major myself I had some serious eye glazing during the parts of the chemistry and math I enjoy popular science books or at least ones where the specifics are toned down I had hoped for a general history of Carbon 14 but it was detailed than I expected Sure details are good but not when you don't know higher math I should note that in the portions I read first few chapters the math wasn't extensive The drawings and figures in the book helped immensely Still I put aside the book as it was too much of a slo

  • Roxanne Spencer

    Hardcover↠ Hot Carbon PDF ç carbon book, Hot Carbon eBookThis was an easy to understand description of the discovery of radioactivity in general and the utility of carbon 14 in particular In the digital ARC I received from NetGalley there was an error in the definition of isotope which prevents me from giving this a higher recommendation Contrary to the text in Hot Carbon all isotopes of an element must have the same number of protons though they do have different numbers of neutrons
