Hello. I'm new here, and hopefully I didn't post this in the wrong section. But anyways, my AP Physics class is literally ruining my life. I just can't grasp the concepts, even by reading our textbook. Speaking of my textbook, it doesn't even show an elaborate step-by-step process. It jumps from step-to-step without explaining with detail. Right now, we're covering motion in two dimensions, and it's the most confusing thing ever. (I know, laugh at me because it's supposed to be an easy topic for everyone). Even motion in one dimension was hell for me. My book never explains the why and how part. For example, why and how is the acceleration of gravity 9.8 m/s2? Why does velocity and acceleration affect one another? Why is the base of that projectile-motion triangle vx = v cosθ? Why does that happen? How can that apply to real life scenarios? My textbook never explains these fundamentals, as if the book expects me to know these things beforehand. I'm aware that solving problems repetitively makes you better, but if I can't understand my textbook or even the lectures in class, then I can't jump ahead to the problem-solving. It's a terrible habit of mine to think like a philosopher in a strict math class. It's why I excel in creative/memory-oriented classes, such as English, History, and Art. And I'm not too bad at math; I maintain a 95% in Pre-Calculus, and same with Algebra II last year. So I don't know why physics has to be such a terrible class for me. Maybe I'm just too stupid to comprehend the concepts, or I'm not as genetically advanced as my dad, who's apparently a genius at physics. Oh, I heavily envy those who are doing great in my physics class. Anyways, you can see I let my mind wander off and get off-topic. Hooray for having a right-oriented brain. Are there any websites or books that explains physics through elaborate visuals? Any tips for surviving this 'spawn of the devil' class known as physics?
