Physics I Tutor is a set of books and videos designed to help you get through first semester physics. Covering most of the topics found in college or AP Physics it's like having a "dummies" book complete with videos and without all the fluff. Material includes cut to the chase explanations of concepts plus lots of solved problems, both in the text and in video. Solved problems show step-by-step solutions to help you learn physics.


Physics I Tutor makes physics as easy to learn as it possibly can be using a teach-by-example approach. Note that calculus based physics is used when appropriate. Topics covered in the books include:

  • Kinemetics and one dimensional motion
  • Speed, velocity, and acceleration
  • Free Fall Motion
  • Vectors
  • Projectile Motion
  • Newtons 3 laws
  • Sliding incline plane problems
  • Friction
  • Work, energy, and Power
  • Conservation of Energy
  • Momentum and Impulse
  • Angular Motion
  • Centripetal Acceleration
  • Torque, Moment of Inertia
  • Oscillatory Motion
  • Waves and Wave motion
  • Sound Waves
  • Gravity
  • Inelastic and elastic Collisions
  • Heat and temperature
  • Basic heat transfer
  • Thermal length changes
  • First law of thermodynamics
  • Basic kinetics of gases
  • Second Law of Thermodynamics
  • Entropy

    Each chapter includes solved examples plus there are video tutorials:

  • Solving kinematics problems
  • Solving Freefall problems
  • Doing Newton's Laws
  • Friction Problems
  • Projectile Motion
  • Oscillations

    More videos to be added in updates.


  • View and print PDF copies of chapters or read on computer
  • Easy navigation between topics
  • Built in resizeable video viewer


  • students taking physics
  • AP Students
  • Parents looking to help their kids
  • Adults looking for self study to learn physics

    Overcome your fear of physics by having someone show you exactly how to solve physics problems. Note this app does solve physics problems using basic calculus.
