Review Guide and Problems for Introductory Physics I is a
collection of problems that have been given as quiz questions, hour exam
question, final exam questions, or homework in various physics classes
of years past.
The content that they cover corresponds to that covered in
Introductory Physics I, an online textbook also found on this
website. It is basically introductory Newtonian Mechanics plus
applications of mechanics to fluids, gravitation, oscillations and
At Duke the course numbers they embrace (support) include 41, 53 and
61. At other schools the numbering will be different and the usefulness
of the problems will need to be determined by looking them (and the
associated textbook) over.
These problems are made openly and freely available to all students
or instructors of physics at Duke or elsewhere subject to the conditions
in the Open Publication License contained in the document itself.
Basically this prohibits reselling any portion of the document for a
profit (without arranging to give me some) and has a suggestion for how
truly ethical students or instructors can make a small contribution to
my physical well-being if the spirit so moves them.
