Sources of information for studying physics and computers


Recommended Posts


When I was a high school student I studied programming at C # and physics at the level of 5 study units.

Today I am an officer in the army (I have another year and a half left) and I am interested in learning a bit of myself, programming and physics (even electricity) on an academic level, both because it interests me and also so that I will have a direction when I am discharged from the army.

My question is where do I get this study material from? I tried to look for books, but found only at the 5 IHL level.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Before I started studying, I used Mario Livio videos for physics (I did not learn at all before), YouTube videos.

He did perfection in physics 1 (classical physics), 2 (electricity) in excellent form.

You will not study here at an academic level, but the explanations are excellent and above the high school level, that is the level of the Technion preparatory program.


Programming books I can recommend a few, depending on the direction you are looking for.

Thank you! 

I noticed that most of the Kahan Academy study is through video clips. Do you also know a written source of study? Ie books, articles, etc.?



You do not need articles but textbooks and exercises.

Look for Berkeley's books on mechanics and electricity and magnetism (university friends, libraries, etc.).

If you are looking for books at an academic level then you can learn from course books (each degree course has a book) according to which the lecturer teaches, usually the lecturer flips through the chapter level in two to three hours, so in any case it is advisable to learn from them.

In general, the argument is that physicists need to know how to take a book and study on their own, that's how they learn the degree, and in the end it starts working.

I will soon be finishing my degree in Physics from Ben-Gurion University. You can enter here:

This is the site of all courses of Physics Department, you can choose a course, for example physics 1 (Mechanics) Enter the information on the course and below under Literature Find a list of recommended books, for example for Physics 1:

  • Main source: An Introduction To Mechanics by Daniel Kleppner, Robert Kolenkow
  • Additional source: Kittel, Mechanics, Berkeley Physics Course, QC 21.B4445
  • Supplementary source: "Thinking Physics", by Lewis Carroll Epstein

Most of the first covers almost everything you need to know, in terms of theory, mathematical developments and intuitive explanations.

Now the least legitimate part of my comment, most of the books can be found on this site:

There is a better site that has just fallen, not sure if it will come back

If it is not legitimate managers are invited to edit my comment :)

post Scriptum.

If you are interested in physics and programming, highly recommend statistical mechanics (requires no prior knowledge of physics 1 and 2), a fascinating field with lots of practical tools and in addition to talking with friends programmers, the mathematics is very similar to the world of Machine Learning. So it can be an interesting motivation.
