Can anyone recommend a good introductory physics textbook that doesn't use calculus? I know how to do calculus, it's just that the physics course I'm taking doesn't use it because it's beginner's physics so I'm looking for a textbook along those lines.

>Physics without calculus
Are you in high-school?
What physics course is that (mechanics, electromagnetism, thermodynamics etc.)

It's an introductory physics course in college. I think it's the equivalent to physics 11.

This confuses me. For what kind of social science majors is this course supposed to be?
>>
>>6579845
it should be so easy that you dont need a textbook then
But the course like that at my university suggests
>Physics: 9th Edition, Cutnell & Johnson (Wiley)

At my school there is physics for non-STEM people. It basically has no math and is mostly definitions and explaining things things without math.

So? Algebra/Trig based physics is more or less the same as Calc based with the derivations skipped. You still learn how the solve the same problems the same way so just read a better calculus based book that doesn't assume the reader is retarded.

pic related

of course, later you ought to take a course in calc-based physics

>>6579914
probably a course based on average instead of instantaneous values; I remember a high-school course like that. basic mechanics and basic electrostatics with baaaasic thermodynamics (Q = mc(delta)t being as far as it goes)

It's probably the physics course for premed and false science (geology/biology/cs) majors.

Fundamentals of Physics is a book everyone should read, seriously.

Calculus used in there is pretty basic and it shouldn't be too hard to figure out what's going on.

fuck off
