Front Cover
Barron's Educational Series, Mar 1, 2002 - Science - 750 pages
1 Review
A comprehensive review of Physics C curriculum topics is followed by a diagnostic test and two Advanced Placement practice exams with answers explained. An introductory section consists of a review of vectors, basic calculus concepts, and strategies for problem solving on the AP exam. Physics C topics reviewed fall under two major headings: Mechanics and Electricity and Magnetism. The Mechanics section covers topics that include Newton's laws, linear momentum and collisions, and universal gravitation. The Electricity and Magnetism section covers Gauss's Law, DC circuits with resistors and batteries, magnetic fields, Ampere's Law, and much more. This brand new Barron's title makes ideal preparation of the AP Examination in Physics C.
