Is anyone doing their bs in physics in Comsats? Can you like tell me which courses I will be having in second semester? And also which books and websites/YouTube should I study from that will be beneficial to me.

Hi, I've moved your thread to the International Study forum

I would advise that most students using this forum are studying in UK universities, so I don't know how many will be able to advise on this specific course at this specific university. For physics (and maths, which goes hand in hand with it) in general though, some may be able to advise more broadly (since a lot of content taught will be common to any physics course), and I'd recommend checking out the Physics and Maths Study Help forums while you're here to that end, as they have a lot of helpful people

For the physics modules I did at uni, I found hyperphysics was a quite convenient first reference point, although it doesn't usually go into great detail. For maths e.g. calculus topics, Paul's Online Math Notes are helpful and go into a little bit more detail comparatively. Those notes will cover most of the maths you'll need in an undergrad physics course at least to some extent (and a lot of it as much as you need, and maybe even a little bit more than that).

The Chicago Undergraduate Physics Bibliography (curiously hosted by Berkeley) is a bibliography compiled by past physics students (at the University of Chicago) of textbooks they've used, with handy notes about which they've found helpful (and which they haven't). A lot of these are quite commonly used in physics courses, so that might also be handy reference. Note the links at the top of the page don't work, you need to scroll through. It also includes texts covering topics that might be more aimed at masters/graduate level students, which may be of interest later in your course.

Thank you so much.^_^ I will definitely check these links out. And if I ever face difficulty in my Physics course, I will be looking forward to your help. I'd be really grateful.
