Hi everyone , can you find some books for classical physics for begginers pls ? thnx
Daverz said:We'll need more info on your educational background. Do you have calculus?
redon said:Im in first year on high school , i understand math well , so what can you suggest me ?

qspeechc said:Could you actually say what mathematics you know please.
redon said:well arithmetics ,geometry , algebra , that's all :(
hitmeoff said:That should be all you need to get something out of the Conceptual Physics book (probably the Asimov book as well). This is fine, I actually think you will absorb harder books better later on if you get yourself a good basic understanding of how physics works, without having to worry to much about the math.
Once you learn some trigonometry, then "College Physics" by Serway would do you well. The Feynman Lectures also work very well, but I do believe that requires some elementary calculus.[/QUOTE
First thank youu , for the books you suggests me.
Can you tell me what calculus need to learn for study physics ?thank you
Ashuron said:Generally you need all the basics of calculus for some intro physics course in university..
Usually those calculus-based physics textbooks will give some explanations on math needed..
For calculus-bases physics, I have used 2 text:
-Physics for Scientist and Engineers by Serway/Jewett: it got nice problems. but personally I do not like the explanations
-Fundamentals of Physics by HRW: better explanations, sometimes can be a bit wordy
My advice, if you are still in High School, try to get your fundamentals correct, especially math

Books for classical physics beginners typically cover topics such as mechanics, thermodynamics, electricity and magnetism, and optics. Some may also include introductory discussions on quantum mechanics and relativity.
Most books for classical physics beginners assume a basic understanding of algebra and trigonometry. Some may also require knowledge of calculus, particularly for topics such as mechanics and electromagnetism.
Yes, there are many recommended books for self-study in classical physics. Some popular options include "Concepts of Physics" by H.C. Verma, "University Physics" by Young and Freedman, and "Fundamentals of Physics" by Halliday and Resnick.
No, a physics background is not necessary. However, a basic understanding of scientific principles and mathematical concepts is helpful in understanding the material.
Some books on classical physics may touch on advanced topics, but they are primarily intended for beginners and may not provide in-depth coverage of advanced concepts. It is recommended to use specialized books for more advanced topics in classical physics.
