Explore the concepts of physics while preparing to take the AP Physics 1 exam. AP Physics 1 requires a deep understanding of many different topics in physics as well as an understanding of the AP exam and the types of questions it asks.
The course incorporates scientific practices and aligns to the six key ideas from the new AP Physics Curriculum Framework. .
In Part 3, you will learn about a property of microscopic matter called charge and how it leads to attractive and repulsive forces between subatomic particles. The electric field will be described as a means to explain these forces, as well as how the field inside a metal leads to a flow of charge called current. You will learn about the current and resistance in DC circuits. Finally, the basic properties of waves will be described, and sound waves will be discussed as an example.
As you work through this course, you will find lecture videos taught by expert AP physics teachers and Rice University professors, practice multiple choice questions and free response questions that are similar to what you will encounter on the AP exam and step-by-step tutorial videos to learn how to solve problems. By the end of the course, active participants will be ready to successfully complete the AP exam!
