The papers of "Magnetism and Sub Atomic Bonding" grew out of basic physics as it advanced from experimental science onto atomic physics, the papers delve into the underbelly of atomic structure to determine why the 'laws' of physics act the way they do.
These tutorial papers introduce the student to the primary physics of magnetism, electricity and vectors. The are aimed at a first year collage level and some knowledge of physics and algebra is required to understand them.
As with all these papers don't be afraid to take your time and dip in and out at random.
The Khan Academy is a not-for-profit internet based teaching aid with the mission of providing a world-class education to anyone, anywhere for free. They are complementing Salman's ever-growing tutoral vidio library with user-paced exercises developed as an open source project allowing the Khan Academy to become the free classroom for the World.
Relevant sections to understand what we are doing - Sections 1 , 2 , 3
