    I might be able to help you better if you said what your educational background is. Have you taken just one physics course? Usually knowing one thing points you in the dsirection of another.

    Get a copy of Halliday and Resnick's "Fundamentals of Physics" and read it, cover to cover. It's very easy to read, and you'll learn about a year's worth of university-level physics.
