I was just wondering what type of calculus is in cal based physics 1? I'm a little rusty at calculus, so I was just curious...
Yes you're right. I first wrote a long reply, then i noticed that he said " cal based physics 1" so I assumed that he meant physics at the level of K&K.I don't think most schools use Kleppner & Kolenkow for "Physics 1".
You'll have to differentiate and integrate polynomials and sines and cosines. Maybe deal with a chain rule. That's it.
"Physics 1" means so many different things. Where I went to school there are five variants of "Physics 1". And that's at one school! You need to see the syallabus, or at least the textbook.
Can anyone help anymore?
Know what a derivative means, know what an integral means, know how to use them. Taking derivative and integrating will be used as tools. Most problem-solving for the first course in the series for Physics (emphasizing Mechanics) for Science & Engineering students will rely on algebra, trigonometry, and vectorsHey guys! Thanks for all the replies.
This is the book:http://www.abebooks.com/97803217530...earson-eText-Standalone-Access-0321753054/plp
I don't have the syllabus yet. It's calculus based physics 1 at a community college.
Here's a description of the course:

Can anyone help anymore? I remember derivatives and chain rule, but I don't remember much of the integrals or limits or stuff like that....
