Which is the best book to clear physics’ basic concepts? Of course the Feynman Lectures on Physics are a great choice, but I’d say it’s too “disperse” of a book to use effectively as a textbook. Basically, he just talks about whatever he feels like talking.
And that’s partly why the lectures are so great to read; nonetheless, you might want a more structured approach for studying different areas of physics. Personally, for basic classical mechanics I feel like recommending “An introduction to classical mechanics” by Kleppner and Kolenkow. It’s a great book, the problems are challenging and the two men never give formulas without justifying them deeply. Moreover, even though the problems don’t have solutions the book is so famous that you could basically google the problem and find the solution without any kind of effort. Beware: it’s by no means an easy book but that’s your best shot at learning basic classical mechanics in a decent way (not at all like the “physics for scientists and engineers” crap).
