Extra Physics Practice

  1. Dec 20, 2012 #1
    Hi, is there an inexpensive book with some quality pencil & paper physics problems (& solutions) that I can do for practice? Even an older textbook edition would be fine as long as the problems are good quality. I'd really like 40-50 or more problems per physics topic.


    P.S. Please only recommend me books that you've used.

    What level? High school? College/university? With or without calculus?

    Either with or without calculus is fine.

    Classical Physics (Kinematics, Newton, Work/Power/Energy, Rotational Motion, etc.)
    Electric & Magnetic Forces, Fields, Potential
    Waves & Optics
    Atomic/Nuclear Physics

    And if the source continues after these then that's fine -- because I can refer back to the book in advanced topics for added value.

    check your country's copyright rule and go here mirtitles.org all Russian/Soviet era problem books Irodov to Pinsky can be found in PDF. format.

    And if you want 40-50 problems a chapter then Serway Physics is good and for 100 above University Physics, Ginacoli, Resnick Halliday may be the best for Calculus based Physics.
