AP Physics 1 and C

Department: Science
Teachers: Gerry Cacnio '86
Open to: Seniors
Length: 2 Semesters

Prerequisite: high achievement in science, math and recommendation of science department. AP Physics 1 and C are introductory, college level courses in the scientific study of Physics. Students will explore the concepts of motion, inertia, conservation of energy, conservation of linear and angular momentum, simple harmonic motion, and Newton’s laws of gravitation, electric fields, electric circuits, and magnetic fields. Lab activities include the determination of the acceleration due to gravity, the study of linear and angular momentum, collisions in one dimension, and simple harmonic motion, and electric circuit analysis. For AP Physics C, students must be concurrently enrolled in either Calculus, AP Calculus AB, or AP Calculus BC. For AP Physics 1, students must be concurrently enrolled in at least pre-calculus. Students are admitted to the course only with the permission of the instructor.
