I'm a graduating senior in high school. I want to study chemical engineering. I have taken all AP courses throughout my HS career had have done well (except in history). I just finished linear algebra, and I'll be taking diff eq over the summer. But the case with me is that I'm a hardcore asian physics GEEK just wanting to burst out of my shell. On the outside, I'm a laid back young adult with Major senioritis. I used to be super great about my homework and agenda, but now... I mean I just don't work. In fact, I have a unit history test to make up tomorrow (today), it's 12:06 AM, I have barely read a single chapter, and yet I'm writing this thread... anyways you get the idea First of all, I'm looking for the passion that I once had for physics. That passion left me when I took AP physics my sophomore year. The teacher made it hell. For me, I like to see physics in a way that's applicable to real life rather than just math equations. My curiosity still brings me to look up physics theories and stuff, but those seem like they were pulled out of a hat... Anyways, I'm looking for inspiration. I want to LOve physics again... I have to because I'm certainly not going into English or something. Any suggestions on books I can read? personal stories? etc etc. Also, I'll be auditing a physics course over the summer. It'll be over the stuff in AP Physics Mechanics C, on which I got a 5, but I forgot pretty much all of it. Thanks for reading. Please leave a helpful response.
