Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi, I am preparing for an entrance test for a grad program but I have not taken physics past gr.11. I am wondering how realistic is it for me to learn the below concepts relating to more biophysics in 3 months? is there any books to recommend?
  • - kinetics, kinematics, force,
  • newton's laws, equilibrium,
  • inertia, three point pressure systems,
  • moment of force, centre of gravity and mass,
  • force couples, levers (classification), principles of stability,
  • friction, work, kinetic and potenitial energy
  • Free Body Diagrams
  • Resolution of Forces:
    • - breakdown resultant forces into component forces
    • - derive resultant forces from component forces
    • - solve using trigometric or graphic methods

Yes. This can definitely be done in three months.
For a textbook I would say University physics Vol1 by Young and Freedman but any intro textbook would do fine.You can probably learn all that stuff from online notes or video lectures but a textbook will have problems that you can solve.
