Abstract. The authors estimate the error of best polynomial approximation in $L^p$-weighted spaces with weights having zeros inside $[-1,1],$ using a suitable modulus of smoothness. The Jackson and Stechkin inequalities are given. Moreover some estimates of the derivatives of the polynomials of best approximation are proved.
