With the basic elements of mechanics under our belt its time to move on to the mathematical portion. Physics separates itself from other science tracks primarily in that it is greatly conceptual and a smaller bit mathematical. As you will see in the coming videos, physics problems require a great deal of thought and understanding of the situation. Youll find that you may have all the variables you need to solve equation x, but equation x is irrelevant to the situation and therefore will not help. So, always be sure you understand what is going on so you can apply the correct equation and solve for the correct property. With those two introductions out of the way, its time to dive right into motion.
Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space. It is the amount of "stuff" making up an object. Mass is measured in kilograms.
Energy is the ability or capacity to do work. Work is the process of moving an object. Therefore, energy is the ability or capacity to move an object.
Mass-Energy Equivalence states that the mass of an object is really a measure of its energy.
The source of all energy on Earth is the conversion of mass into energy.
Physics is the study of matter and energy. This course will focus on mechanics, fluids, thermal physics, electricity and magnetism, waves and optics, and selected topics in modern physics.
Lecture Slides are screen-captured images of important points in the lecture. Students can download and print out these lecture slide images to do practice problems as well as take notes while watching the lecture.
This book includes a comprehensive review of the key AP Physics C concepts and targeted strategies for acing every section of the exam. Additionally, the book includes two full length practice tests with full answer explanations.
The book offers a complete review of your AP course, strategies to give you the edge on test day, and plenty of practice with AP-style test questions. It includes 2 full length practice exams modeled on the real test, 3 separate plans to fit your study stle, review material updated to the most recent tests, and all the terms and concepts you need to know.
