I need some suggestions on classical physics. You can help me with some high school papers or books to get started with.Thanks!
Does that mean with or without a prerequisite of calculus?sahilmm15 said:with some high school papers or books
I am clear with my basics of calculus.FactChecker said:Does that mean with or without a prerequisite of calculus?
I would second this. Explanation are clear and brief. Very good memorable diagrams. The diagrams are meaningful and easy to understand. It is better than the Resnick book.andresB said:Alonso & Finn I and II.
Classical physics is a branch of physics that deals with the study of matter and energy at a macroscopic level, meaning it focuses on objects that are large enough to be seen with the naked eye. It is based on the laws of motion and gravity proposed by Isaac Newton in the 17th century.
Some popular books on introductory classical physics include "Fundamentals of Physics" by David Halliday, Robert Resnick, and Jearl Walker, "Classical Mechanics" by John R. Taylor, and "An Introduction to Mechanics" by Daniel Kleppner and Robert Kolenkow.
Yes, classical physics is still relevant today as it provides the foundation for understanding many concepts in modern physics. While it may not fully explain phenomena at the atomic and subatomic level, it is still applicable to everyday objects and systems.
Having a basic understanding of algebra and trigonometry is helpful in understanding introductory classical physics. However, many introductory books provide explanations and examples that are accessible to readers with varying levels of math proficiency.
Classical physics principles can be applied in many areas of everyday life, such as understanding the motion of objects, designing structures and machines, and predicting the behavior of fluids. For example, understanding the laws of motion can help in designing a bridge that can withstand the forces of wind and traffic.
