In 2014, the Physics B exam was split into two one-year courses, Physics 1 and Physics 2. Many students are unable to take this amount of time to gain an understanding of the physics required for college level work in physics, astronomy, or engineering. This course is a unique AP-approved opprotunity for the dedicated student to complete both courses in a single year. The course introduces students to the principles of classical (Physics 1) and modern (Physics 2) physics, including basic concepts of motion, conservation laws, kinematics and dynamics, energy, momentum, thermodynamics, optics, electrical and magnetic fields, light wave mechanics, quantum mechanics, and nuclear energy.
