Course Description: This course, along with 3A057X0AP, is structured to match a year-long college level course in Physics and uses algebra, trigonometry and limited calculus skills. Passing the AP Physics C test prepares you to enter a college course of study in engineering or science and is recognized by many colleges for as much as a one year science credit towards a BS degree. Topics include Kinematics, Newton’s Laws, Conservation Laws, Rotational Kinematics, Gravitation, Waves & Oscillations, Electrostatics, Conductors, Dielectrics & Capacitors, Gauss’s Law, Electric Circuits, Magnetism, Electromagnetism, Ampere’s law, Faraday’s Law, Lentz’s Law and Maxwell’s Equations. . The course involves a hands-on lab component where students utilize computer inter-faced sensing equipment to assist them in their investigations of various phenomena. Approximately 30-40 hours of lab work will be completed during the course (A physical science or an advanced laboratory science). Students are required to take the AP Physics C Examinations at the end of the year.
