It's hard to give general help on a field as broad as physics. Even when you are overwhelmed in general, it's always best to start specifically somewhere, and build an understanding off of it. To get good help on Brilliant I recommend posting a specific problem or question that you are stuck on.

To receive the best help, pose the question and also express all the work or understanding of the problem or question you have so far. This helps people to identify what you do not understand and give you the exact help you need, as opposed to merely giving you the right answer.

On our weekly problems, do not be shy about entering solution discussions, looking at other people's solutions and asking for help there.
