Course Info:
Text books:
  • Berkeley physics course , vol.1 / Mechanics
  • מכניקה ("ספר ירוק") , האוניברסיטה הפתוחה תרגום של ברקלי
More relevant books
  •  Feynman Lectures on Physics - It is not the best text book (doesn't cover all the necessarily material for our course, and it isn't the best intro text), however, it does give a fresh perspective and is therefore excellent as a secondary source.
  •  מכניקה קלאסית ויחסותית, דוד אגמון - Good text book with emphasis on excellent exercises.
Grade Structure / Requirements:
