Physics is the study of the laws of nature. The phenomena
studied range from the subatomic scale to the cosmological
scale. The ultimate test of the validity of any law is
determined by experiment.
The international system (SI) of units is used throughout.
Length is measured in meters (m), mass in kilograms (kg), and
time in seconds (s).
The law of cosines allows the determination of the third
side of a triangle if the other two sides and the angle between
them are known.
The law of sines states that in a triangle the ratio of the
sine of an angle to the length of the opposite side is
A scalar is a quantity that is completely determined by its
magnitude; mass, time, distance, and speed, are scalars. A
vector is specified by a magnitude and a direction.
Displacement, velocity, acceleration, and force, are
Introduction to Physics (Basic Math)
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.
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 full length practice exams modeled on the real test and all the terms and concepts you need to know.
This book includes a review of all the topics tested including vectors, kinematics, fluid mechanics, optics and nuclear physics. Additionally, the book includes two full length tests made complete with descriptive solutions, and quick study tables for Physics B formulas and equations.
