    hi i just registered.i would like to say that this seems to be a great forum.im seventeen and i live in greece.the truth is that i dont know many things about physics.but i want to learn chemistry,physics and advanced mathematics sooo much...i dont think that the school education will answer my questions.for example now we are learning about electric fields and gas laws.i want to learn more(although my friends mock me for that)but i dont know from where to start ive been searching the web for many things like general relativity to academic level chemistry but those things are way to complicated for me to understand.so i would like you to help me if possible.can you suggest me any good websites(for beginners like me) or some good ebooks because i dont know from where to start...
    thank you very much,

    What about buying a book on some of the subjects? For learning physics I would strongly recommend "Physics for Scientists and Engineers" by Serway and Jewett. This is a huge book that will get you started in many areas of physics including relativity, quantum mechanics, optics, electromagnetism etc. For the mathematics I would recommend "Calculus" by Edwards and Penny.

    Both of these books should be on a level understandable to you.

    An excellent choice.

    For an online reference, I recommend: hyperphysics

    Also, Ben Crowell has an excellent set of textbooks that he makes available online for free: http://www.lightandmatter.com/
