I'll leave it to the BA to start the thread List of errors and typos II, after we vet them.
Page 53: In the footnote, after discussing the fact that the Earth's North Pole is actually a south magnetic pole (that's why a magnet north pole points North), he says:That's just not true, except as noted for the earth's poles. This could be just an instance of that confusion. But he goes on:And oh--it gets worse still: the poles on a bar magnet are actually labeled for the pole they attract.So, that's clearly wrong.So the pole labeled "N" on a bar magnet actually tries to point to another magnet's north pole (it "seeks" the north pole), so the pole labeled "N" is actually the south pole.Gotta agree thereConfused yet? Yeah, like magnetisim isn't already hard enough to understand.
I also object to the section heading on the bottom of page 29: "Comet What May" -- that's just wrong!
