free physics textbooks


Ben Crowell of Fullerton College, CA, has made his Light and Matter introductory physics text sequence (for life-science students, with optional calculus) freely available for down­load under the Creative Commons License from http://www.lightandmatter.com. My students are now reading from the Optics text from that set, a topic not treated in our class text. Others in that series include Newtonian Physics, Conservation Laws, Vibrations and Waves, Electricity and Magnetism, and The Modern Revolution in Physics. Crowell also provides instructor's resource materials and two other works based on conservation laws from his site.

The classic and historically important text Practical Physics (1922) by Robert Millikan and Henry Gale is available from the Internet Archive http://www.archive.org/details/practicalphysics00millrich, and was reviewed online by John Denker in PHYS-L at https://carnot.physics.buffalo.edu/archives (search on Gale). Some 1000 freely downloadable electronic texts and out-of-copyright facsimiles of physics texts are now online at http://www.archive.org (search the word physics and select “texts” as media type), including many classics and much dated mate­rial.

走馬看花般scan了幾個題目,不算難明。令人讚嘆的是十分全面,從最基本的牛頓力學,到現代物理的理論也一應俱備。即使不用作指定教材,也是一份很好網上參考本。
