# Physics problems

Does anyone know any good problem solving books for physics? I mean books which don’t directly start with hard questions, but have easy questions which transition to more difficult ones. Maybe that’s too much... just a good problem solving book.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Irodov problems in general physics is always amazing to help you fully understand physics concepts and most importantly apply them. Each section in Irodov starts with easier problems and ends with quite difficult problems.

Krotov's also great. Read HC Verma for concepts. The other extremely important resource is lectures. MIT OCW has a bunch of free lectures on physics and Walter Lewin's Youtube channel has all of his lectures on Classical Mechanics and Electricity and Magnetism.

Just look up the books online, I am 100% sure they are available as a pdf somewhere.

Is HC Verma available as pdf? If you know, pls send link as I can’t find it

If you look up HC Verma physics online, you may find a copy, all though there's a risk of malware lol

Hmm... actually it is rather hard to obtain free, sadly. Either way, it is not what you were looking for since you were looking for a collection of problems. So Irodov is best for you.

For more fun try "Feynman lectures on Physics" (Three volumes) :)

I have those. I am looking for a book with problems in it too
