AP Physics 1 and 2 are two, full-year AP Physics courses, equivalent to the first and second semesters of an introductory, algebra-based college physics course.

Here is the syllabus for AP Physics 1.

  • Kinematics

  • Dynamics: Newton's laws

  • Circular motion and universal law of gravitation

  • Simple harmonic motion: simple pendulum and mass-spring systems

  • Impulse, linear momentum, and conservation of linear momentum: collisions

  • Work, energy, and conservation of energy

  • Rotational motion: torque, rotational kinematics and energy, rotational dynamics, and conservation of angular momentum

  • Electrostatics: electric charge and electric force

  • DC circuits: resistors only

  • Mechanical waves and sound

Here is the syllabus for AP Physics 2.

  • Thermodynamics: laws of thermodynamics, ideal gases, and kinetic theory

  • Fluid statics and dynamics

  • Electrostatics: electric force, electric field and electric potential

  • DC circuits and RC circuits (steady-state only)

  • Magnetism and electromagnetic induction

  • Geometric and physical optics

  • Quantum physics, atomic, and nuclear physics

Here is the syllabus for AP Physics C: Mechanics.

  • Kinematics

  • Newton's laws of motion

  • Work, energy, power

  • Systems of particles, linear momentum

  • Circular motion and rotation

  • Oscillations and gravitation

Here is the syllabus for AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism.

  • Electrostatics

  • Conductors, capacitors, dielectrics

  • Electric circuits

  • Magnetic fields

  • Electromagnetism
