Homework Help: Looking for a good source for problem sets

  1. Dec 20, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    i'm feeling that i didn't quite catch the whole concept of inertial forces very well , and i'm looking for an additional source for mechanics problems .
    so far i have been learning and solving problems for "an introduction to mechanics" by danniel kleppner , which is btw is an awsome book , but i need some more.
    i have stumbled this particular question:
    A river flows from the north to the south in the northern hemisphere at the latitude http://physweb.bgu.ac.il/cgi-bin/mimetex.cgi?%20%5Ctheta. The flow velocity is mimetex.gif and the river width is mimetex.gif . What is the difference of the water level at the western and eastern coasts ? (Hint: the ratio between the height difference and the width of the river is equal to the ratio between accelerations in the corresponding directions.)

    i don't need any help to solve it, but roughly this is the level of the questions i am looking for.
    so if anyone could point me to the source of this problem , i will be very grateful :)
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
