I'm studying 2nd year and I'm self studying some of the concepts in the physics,so I would be grateful if someone suggests me a book for the concept understanding
Give detailed information about you, your background, your goals, your preference in books, your current struggles, etc.
Thanks for ur responseProvided you have the math background, Kleppner and Kolenkow may be a great place to learn mechanics. The book is very well written, but the problem sets are extremely hard. I had finished Calculus 2 and was taking Linear Algebra, when I first started learning mechanics. So I had the necessary mathematics needed to learn from this book.
Another option, that is easier then Kleppner and Kolenkow, but is also a good book is the physics series by Alonso and Finn. The series consist of three books and the name of the series is called: Fundamental University Physics. The books are expensive, the third volume is near 800 dollars. Unless you can find these books for cheap I wouldn't bother. Although, I believe they are the best for learning physics.
There is hope. The indian market has reprints of these 3 books. I am not sure about the quality, and if the material was exactly reprinted, so buy with caution. Maybe someone who has seen the reprints for the indian market can clue in. Everything is derived. It does assume a student knows there calculus thoroughly.
I know Exactly what you are going through. I will suggest a book from India which is VERY good for your purpose.I'm studying 2nd college in India,I'm studying science.
In our country, for further science courses to study, we have to excel in several entrance exams.
I was not knowing the last year that the topics for the entrance exams would be from both 1st and the 2nd year.
I'm not thorough with my 1st year's topics in all the subjects (physics,chemistry,maths and biology).
So to prepare (self study rather). I need books for the understanding of concepts,
In my physics course book of the 1st year,I have to topics or chapters like Newtonian mechanics,waves,thermodynamics etc.
