AP Physics 1 (662)

AP Physics is designed as an introductory college-level physics course. Through inquiry-based learning, students will develop critical thinking and reasoning skills, as they explore the following topics: Kinematics, Dynamics (Newton’s Laws), Circular motion and the universal law of gravitation, Simple harmonic motion (simple pendulum and mass-spring systems), Impulse, linear momentum, and conservation of linear momentum (collisions), Work, energy, and conservation of energy, Rotational motion (torque, rotational kinematics and energy, rotational dynamics, and conservation of angular momentum), Electrostatics (electric charge and electric force), DC circuits (resistors only), Mechanical waves and sound. (Students are expected to take the AP exam in May.)
