How can I learn some basic physics?

  1. May 23, 2013 #1
    I'm 15 (going to be 16) and will be going into my junior year of high school.
    I will be taking Pre-cal and Chem 2, but I would like to learn a little bit of physics during this summer.
    Do you guys have any suggestions or should I wait until I get done with pre-cal?
    I would just like to know where to start.

    Welcome to the PF.

    This is a fun and interesting book that should be useful for you to read:

    "Thinking Physics" by Epstein: https://www.amazon.com/Thinking-Phy...d=1369326076&sr=1-1&keywords=thinking+physics

    It's inexpensive and available at a number of bookstores, or through Amazon.com. :smile:
