Chapter 5.Selected Exercises5
  1. The four lectures in Feynman's Tips on Physics were given by Feynman in 1961 for the same introductory physics course as those in The Feynman Lectures on Physics. The online edition of these four lectures was prepared from a PDF of the Second Edition of Feynman's Tips on Physics provided by our publisher Basic Books. We are greatly indebted to Natallia Piatrenka for her help in preparing the figures, and to Michael Godfrey for proofreading.
  2. Substantially similar to Sands' article Capturing the Wisdom of Feynman, published in Physics Today on April 1, 2005.
  3. From Richard Feynman's Oral History Interview, Session IV, made by Charles Weiner in Altadena, California on June 28, 1966, published by The Niels Bohr Library & Archives, American Institute of Physics. (After clicking the link search for "Feynman Lectures".)
  4. From Robert Leighton's Oral History Interview (pages 65-76), made by Heidi Aspaturian in Pasadena, California on October 8, 1986, published by the Caltech Archives, California Institute of Technology.
  5. The 80 simple physics exercises in this chapter (plus another 900, more advanced) are included in the book Exercises for The Feynman Lectures on Physics, 2014, Basic Books. A few of them can be found among the exercises in our /info section, and many more in the Homework and Tests of the FLP Original Course Handouts.
