About AP
The college board Advanced Placement examination allows student to study/learn college material while in high school and at the same time , AP scores provide advantage in college admission and give credits to students
The AP curriculum for each of the various subjects is created for the College Board by a panel of experts and collegelevel educators in that field of study. For a high school course to have the AP designation, the course must be audited by the College Board to ascertain that it satisfies the AP curriculum
AP courses for Physics
There are four courses in Physics
1) AP physics 1:
This is a yearlong AP course designed by the College Board to replace AP Physics B in the 2014 – 2015 school year. AP Physics 1 and AP Physics 2 will teach the same general curriculum as AP Physics B, but instead split the course into two and cover more information, specifically rotational mechanics.
This is a algebra based curriculum course. It is said to cover the material of a first semester university undergraduate physics course offered at a typical American university.
Course
Kinematics
Dynamics: Newton’s laws
Circular motion and universal law of gravitation
Simple harmonic motion: simple pendulum and massspring 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
2) AP Physics 2
It is an algebrabased, introductory collegelevel physics course that explores topics such as fluid statics and dynamics; thermodynamics with kinetic theory; PV diagrams and probability; electrostatics; electrical circuits with capacitors; magnetic fields; electromagnetism; physical and geometric optics; and quantum, atomic, and nuclear physics. Through inquirybased learning, students will develop scientific critical thinking and reasoning skills
Course
Thermodynamics: laws of thermodynamics, ideal gases, and kinetic theory
Fluid statics and dynamics
Electrostatics: electric force, electric field and electric potential
DC circuits and RC circuits (steadystate only)
Magnetism and electromagnetic induction
Geometric and physical optics
Quantum physics, atomic, and nuclear physics
3) AP Physics C: Mechanics
it is a onesemester, calculusbased, collegelevel physics course, especially appropriate for students planning to specialize or major in physical science or engineering. The course explores topics such as Kinematics, Work energy,Newton’s laws of motion , Gravtitation,Systems of particles, linear momentum and Circular motion and rotation Introductory differential and integral calculus is used throughout the course.
