AP Physics B is a national algebra/trigonometry based course in physics. The syllabus for this course is equivalent to introductory physics courses for university students. The emphasis is on understanding the concepts and skills using laboratory investigation and formulae to solve problems. Laboratory work is an integral part of this course. In this course students will investigate kinematics, Newton’s laws, torque, rotational motion and angular momentum, gravitation, circular motion, work, energy, power, linear momentum, mechanical waves and sound, and electric circuits. This course is designed for college bound students interested in pursuing a science related field. Dual credit may be available. Students will be qualified to sit for the AP Physics 1 examination.
