Books for introductory mechanics
Hi everyone,
Basically I'm studying high school physics and I need some advice on which books to purchase, ideally I would prefer to know which books are good to learn the theory and which are good to practice plenty of quite complicated exercises. The syllabus covers Vectors and scalars, moments, kinematics, newton's laws of motion, energy and power, everything in 2D and there is barely any vector calculations (apart from calculating a resultant vector). Obviosuly if you know any really good books for each of the different topics I would be very interested aswell. Here is the syllabus in a bit more detail:
Scalars and vectors
Moments
 Applying the principle of moments to different problems
 Couples
 Stable and unstable equilibrium
 Tilting and topling
Kinematics
 Interpreting Displacementtime and velocitytime graphs.
 Motion along a straight line at constant acceleration.
 Acceleration due to gravity.
 Projectile motion.
Newton's laws of motion
 Applying Newton's 3 laws of motion to pulley problems, strings under tension and objects sliding down a slope.
Energy and Power.
 Kinetic and potential energy, power and measuring efficiency
Many thanks!!
