AP Physics C
AP Physics C is a fast-paced, rigorous, college-level course covering 2 semesters of a calculus-based physics class. First Semester is Mechanics, which provides instruction in each of the following content areas: kinematics; Newton’s laws of motion; work, energy and power; systems of particles and linear momentum; circular motion and rotation; and oscillations and gravitation. Second Semester is Electricity and Magnetism, which provides instruction in each of the following content areas: electrostatics; conductors, capacitors and dielectrics; electric circuits; magnetic fields; and electromagnetism. There are two separate AP Exams at the end of the second semester. The first is over Mechanics and the second covers Electricity and Magnetism.
