Main Question or Discussion Point
Hi everyone , can you find some books for classical physics for begginers pls ? thnx
Im in first year on high school , i understand math well , so what can you suggest me ?We'll need more info on your educational background. Do you have calculus?

Could you actually say what mathematics you know please.Im in first year on high school , i understand math well , so what can you suggest me ?
thnx you :)How about Conceptual Physics by Hewitt?
thank you Darverz
well arithmetics ,geometry , algebra , thats all :(Could you actually say what mathematics you know please.
That should be all you need to get something out of the Conceptual Physics book (probably the Asimov book as well). This is fine, I actually think you will absorb harder books better later on if you get yourself a good basic understanding of how physics works, without having to worry to much about the math.well arithmetics ,geometry , algebra , thats all :(

Once you learn some trigonometry, then "College Physics" by Serway would do you well. The Feynman Lectures also work very well, but I do believe that requires some elementary calculus.[/QUOTE
First thank youu , for the books you suggests me.
Can you tell me what calculus need to learn for study physics ?thank you
Thank you , i will tryGenerally you need all the basics of calculus for some intro physics course in university..
Usually those calculus-based physics textbooks will give some explanations on math needed..
For calculus-bases physics, I have used 2 text:
-Physics for Scientist and Engineers by Serway/Jewett: it got nice problems. but personally I do not like the explanations
-Fundamentals of Physics by HRW: better explanations, sometimes can be a bit wordy
My advice, if you are still in High School, try to get your fundamentals correct, especially math
