Russian elementary physics books
Brazilian students willing to undertake the ITA/IME exams (for admission to their undergraduate courses) will like know that Editora Vestseller is making available several books from the russian MIR publishers that are out of print or available at a high price elsewhere. I have purchased myself recently a copy of Saraeva‘s book (Portuguese translation) from Vestseller and it arrived in excellent condition, in time, and at a good price. I do not know whether they sell outside Brazil. The ITA/IME exams are demanding for the students and most questions are at the level of or inspired by questions found in russian physics books.
A typical problem in Saraeva (problem 200): will the system below stay in equilibrium?
One should of course work out all the forces acting in the system and not rely on a careless first impression.
