Conceptual Physics

  1. Nov 6, 2008 #1
    Are there any good books or website for conceptual physics? I don't seem to have any problem cranking out problems & for the most part I understand fundamental calculus based physics, but then a few conceptual questions will throw me off here & there... so yeah, are there any good supplements to the textbooks? Again, its just fundamental calculus based physics.

    Paul Hewitt wrote a textbook with that very title. I'd also suggest The Flying Circus of Physics (with answers) by Walker.

    I guess you also might find Halliday Resnick Walker useful for theory. Use Irodov for conceptual problems.

    Feynman's Lectures on Physics are conceptual. XD
