Are there any introductory physics texts (ie. principles of physics) out there that just flat-out EXTENSIVELY use calculus?
I have a copy of the first edition of "Physics - The Nature of Things" by Lea and Burke. I'm pretty happy with the way it is written and presented.
I'm just curious to know if there are any undergraduate introductory physics texts out there that are written with the prior assumption that the student already has a working grasp of calculus.
Thanks in advance.

An Introduction to Mechanics by Kleppner and Kolenkow....that book has a lot of Calculus in it...and its used by MIT's honor's freshman physics class I believe. Seriously though, that book has some nice problems which really force you to think, and go way beyond the plug and chug found in many other physics texts. I'd highly recommend An Introduction to Mechanics...though I would recommend that you have a pretty decent grasp on Calculus when you start using it.
