Where Should I try to learn more about thermodynamics and physics?

  1. Aug 12, 2017 #1
    I am a senior in high school and I want to learn more about thermodynamics and physics in general. Unfortunately, I don't have anything available at my high school.
    I am trying to find online courses but I honestly don't know where to look at because some of the courses I've seen seem too basic and the others too advanced. I've looked at khan academy's website and I find their physics program kind of basic.
    Can you reccomend me any online course?
    Thanks for the help!

    I would suggest to buy a book. I would recommend University Physics with Modern Physics by Young and Freedman. Read the chapter and solve the exercises at the end. If you are stuck, ask questions here or look for videos on that topic. Also I would highly recommend MIT's courses which are online. Especially the courses by Dr Walter Lewin are highly praised. Also to get the conceptual understanding of physics, Richard Feynman's Lectures is a great source
