How to use the Tutorial

Profit from this Tutorial

         follow the indicated path, which leads logically trough all subjects.

This course is particularly thought for persons who do not have a technical background. Nevertheless to understand the subject we will need to look in some physics. I tried my best to make the explanations as easy as possible.

You don't need to remember everything but try to work yourself along the indicated path.

There are two paths leading trough all chapters:

If you don't have a distinct technical background the green path is perfect for you. It is leading logically trough all subjects and touching a basic level of understanding.

To navigate along the green path just use the green  CONTINUE   buttons.

In some places there is a yellow path going to some deeper level. If green is "cold coffee" for you then the yellow path and red pages might be more suitable for you.

Just follow the yellow  CONTINUE  buttons.

The red pages contain some more mathematical information.

Just use the   RED PAGE   button.

Under this sign              you will find additional information.
