This book is for an introductory undergraduate study of calculus-based physics. It covers the topic of waves first, because they are a predominant part of modern physical theory. Next, this book will cover the basics of motion. Next, the theory of Special Relativity and Quantum Mechanics are introduced. In the later sections, we cover a number of disjointed topics, including Gravity, Electromagnetism, Fluid dynamics, Thermodynamics, and Nuclear Physics.

Presents the fundamental topics in modern physics to students who have already completed a full year of introductory physics. The concepts of special relativity, quantum physics, atomic and subatomic structure, and solid state physics are presented.
by David J. Raymond
This text developed out of a beginning physics course for students with a strong interest in physics. Starting with waves and relativity, the author develops all of physics in a modern context rather than adding a bit of modern physics at the end.
by Michael Fowler - University of Virginia
This text contains the complete set of lecture notes for an introductory physics course for physics majors. We trace how the new ideas developed and examine the experimental and theoretical paradoxes that forced thinking out of the traditional path.
by Paul Fendley - The University of Virginia
A lot of time in this class will be devoted to physics discovered in he years 1890-1930. In the course of the class, we'll try to really understand the key ideas of quantum mechanics, special relativity, general relativity and cosmology.
