AP Physics 2

This class will cover most of the AP Physics 2 materials. Students will learn concepts on fluids, thermodynamics, electricity, and magnetism. Physics helps us understand the everyday interactions of energy and matter in the world around us. There will be simulations and demos to inspire interest in physics and show its applications in real life. Basic understanding of mechanics is required. Optics and modern physics will not be covered in this course.
