The primary reason of general physics course is to give the student a unified view of physics. this should be done without bringing in too many details, but by analyzing the basic principles, their implications, and their limitations. specifics application will learn in the more specialized course that follow. This book presenting the idea above.
The subject matter has been divided into five parts : mechanics, interaction and fields, waves, quantum physics and statistical physics.
This first part, is compiled in order to set up fundamental principle needed to describe the motions we observe around us.
