Calculus Online Calculus Based Physics Textbook

  1. Jan 17, 2015 #1
    First post here, so apologies if there is a similar thread. None came up on my first search. I am looking for a free online calculus based physics textbook suitable for introductory physics.

    Thanks in advance.

    Simple Nature is probably the best available. All of Ben Crowell's free books are pretty good.

    Do you mind me asking why it should be online? I assume you are looking for something free but you can find an excellent older text for just a few bucks. Much easier to read. Here's one:


    For $5-6 you can't really go wrong. Much easier to read and, in my opinion, much better than new books.

    I can't afford the number of books that would be needed.
