Everything About AP Physics 1

 

Everything About AP Physics 1

With colleges and schools continuing to open slowly and watchfully, students have started picking courses that interest them right away. This apparent energy for choosing courses of interest can be credited to the time which students had to spend away from their ‘other home’ or in light of the way that no one wants to confront the test of ‘being late’ now.

AP Physics 1 is one of the many popular courses that are being opted by students across the world taking AP exams! Let’s understand the pattern of this exam and the key to perfect this exam.

The AP Physics 1 exam consists of two sections Section 1 and Section 2. Section 1 is a multiple-choice section that has 50 questions and you will be given 1 hr 30 mins to complete this section. The multiple-choice section will consist of questions like individual, single questions, questions in sets that refer to the same diagram or data presentation, Multi-select questions (2 options are correct) etc. Section 2 is a Free Response Questions section where you would answer 5 questions in 1 hr 30 mins. 

The Free Response Questions would be:

  1. Experimental Design (1 question): pertains to designing and describing an investigation, analysis of lab data, and observations to identify patterns or explain phenomena
  2. Qualitative/Quantitative Translation (1 question): requires you to express a justification or reasoning quantitatively (using numbers, equations, diagrams, etc.) and qualitatively (in words)
  3. Short Answer (3 questions, 1 requiring a paragraph-length argument)

The weightage of both the sections I and II are the same with respect to marks. This course is different from its AP Physics C counterpart as in this course, math is only limited to basic algebra. While, in AP Physics C, calculus is a must!

Let’s look at the units covered in AP Physics 1 exam:  

 

Kinematics

Dynamics

Circular Motion and Gravitation

Energy

Momentum

Simple Harmonic Motion

Torque and Rotational Motion

Electric Charge and Electric Force

DC Circuits

Mechanical Waves and Sound

The AP Physics 1 exam covers mostly mechanics and only a few Electricity chapters. If you are interested in learning physics and making a good conceptual understanding of physics before opting for the AP physics C course, this course is for you!

At Masterclass Space, we offer a comprehensive AP Physics 1 Preparation course which ranges over 100+ hours and offers live online education and extensive discussion sessions. At MCS, we accept that Physics is fun, it is only that it should be educated in the correct manner!
