General Physics with Calculus is built around Jeffrey W. Schnick's online physics text, Calculus-Based Physics. The book is descried as an introductory physics textbook designed for use in the two-semester introductory physics course typically taken by science and engineering students.

Our intention here to provide easy access to solid, calculus-based general physics for serious students of the subject.

If you find you are having difficulty following the presentations with this level of mathematics, you should switch to Free-Ed.Net's companion course, College Physics Algebra Version.

Or if you need help with the calculus, you should check out our courses in calculus and differential equations.
