AP Physics 1 Learning Objectives:
- Discover vectors and learn mathematical formulas for determining different types of vectors.
- Examine kinematics and define such terms as object position, speed, velocity, distance, and acceleration.
- Inspect how Sir Isaac Newton developed his laws for gravity, motion, mass, and force.
- Study the differences between work energy, kinetic energy, and mechanical energy.
- Read about the laws of momentum to better understand collisions and the momentum conservation principle.
- Explore centripetal force in relation to gravitational force, friction, and tension.
- Analyze the formula for simple harmonic motion (SHM) and test the formula to determine velocity, time displacements, oscillations, and acceleration.
- Interpret figures for rotational motion by identifying such factors as inertia, mass, speed, and kinetic energy.
- Review how protons, atoms, and electrons repel or attract one another in an electrical field.
- Determine how vibrations cause waves that produce different types of sounds.
