Help Needed -- Physics

Hello Brilliant friends, recently I have come across many level 4 and 5 mechanics and Em problems, from my observation I am unable to solve them because I lack the mathematical and some conceptual understanding. I want any recommendations such as books and lectures, especially Problem Solving Books with detailed solutions.Since Physics Olympiads are coming I wanted to prepare for them. Any help Appreciated!

get these two: Halliday, Resnick & Krane, vol 1, vol 2. One of those which blend math and physics harmoniously.

Okay, and these..., "learning physics through interesting problem solving", that's the motto of these two: HCV1 & HCV2

Start from the basics, The basics of the advanced is bulit by IRODOV, then go for KROTOV, then 200 puzzling problems in physics, past year olympiad papers and if you want to study in depth, make time for Griffiths, purcell, Morrin and of course, FEYNMAN lectures

i totally agree with morin part, david morins classical mechanics is great, but yeah 200 problems are pretty hard, compared to iridov, have you fully finished it @Tushar Gopalka , i am still just digging through it

I too am dragging myself along. Have completed only till 30 questions. You?

Me too big ban of Russian writers. Irodov is still, I think, unmatched in its level of difficulty. But would you suggest it for Olympiad. I 'm just asking, because I find the books has more general problems. Whereas Olympiads are notorious for being tricky. A book that surfaces where the students are more likely to make mistakes, would be more appropriate.

Then try 200 puzzling problems in physics. Its much more notorious than anyone can expect.

Thank you for the recommendations @Tushar Gopalka I will start reading them, do you know if these books require mathematical skills above calculus?

Irodov and Krotov are more mathematically bent.

Soumo Mukherjee - 2 years, 9 months ago

Not required but make sure you have a good hold of calculus, especially integration and differential equations.

@Tushar Gopalka thank you very much

Nope! Calculus is all you need for Irodov.

I think IRODOV and KROTOV are more than enough.

What is the definition of enough?

Hmm.... Don't say u can't solve problems... Just work hard, study hard and don't give up. U av d power to solve problems.If some students can do it... U can also do it.. Just keep practicing nd don't give up.. There is sumtin in. Just bliv in ur self.. '''IT'S IN U'''.

Use resnick halliday for theory and problems if u complete that switch to I R Irodov. Because it is tough.

Try IIT physics by anurag Mishra...best for both concepts and problem solving..

Buy the book "Advanced problems in School physics" Vol-1 and Vol-2 by Cengage Learning. Its an awesome book with questions of a level much higher than Irodov but I am doubtful of its availability in USA

Some advanced problems are in physics olympiad of I.SH. SLOBODETSKI

Conceptual Physics - special edition series - best conceptual book I know. It's how I came to understand the universe. Absolutely underpriced.

Fundamentals of Physics - best operational book I know. It's how I'm learning to solve problems in physics, in my AP Physics C course.

Oh, and by the way, learn Calculus. It is arguably the most beautiful and most useful mathematical subject invented by mankind. If you have some money, I can suggest you possibly the best math lectures in existence on the subject of Calculus.

Good luck.

thanks man, btw what class are you in?

Hello Friend, well i can understand that. i am also preparing for the upcoming Physics Olympiad. For conceptual guidance, i would recommen you to go through the book by Resnik-Halliday. Its the "godbook" for clearing physics concepts. and for Probelm Solving part, first you should solve "Problems In Genreal Physics"" by I.E.Irodov. and after completing that you can go through the book by Krotov. these two are solely for high-level physics problems.

Hope That Helps.

I would recommend that you watch some videos on Youtube , especially channels such as "Khan Academy" , "Dr Physics A" , and websites such as "hyper physics , .........." , and as far as i know A level Mathematics books are very very useful , especially the latest versions ! Wish u nothing but the best !

@Kushal Patankar ok thanks. I didn't know that.

..so that's a book everyone interested in physics must have. Got to recommend it too.
