“The most efficient physics books are the ones kids will in truth read.”
AP Physics 1 Essentials is an easy-to-read guide to all the AP Physics 1 course, featuring more than 600 worked-out problems with full solutions and deeper understanding questions. AP Physics 1 Essentials covers all major topics included in the AP Physics 1 course, including: kinematics, dynamics, momentum, impulse, gravity, uniform circular motion, rotation, work, energy, power, mechanical waves, sound, electrostatics, and circuits.
AP Physics 1 Essentials is integrated with the APlusPhysics.com website, which includes online question and answer forums, videos, animations, and supplemental problems that can assist you master the essential concepts of physics.
This book is designed to assist physics students in their high school AP Physics courses both as a guide during the course in addition to a review book to assist in end-of-course exam preparation. Its focus is on providing the bare bones, essential concepts necessary for success in the course in a straightforward and easy-to-read manner, leaving development of in-depth problem solving and lab work to the study room, where it is most effective. In short, this isn’t intended as a substitute for a standard textbook or course, but reasonably as an invaluable supplementary resource.
This new 2nd edition includes more than 90 AP-style problems to test your understanding and help prepare you for the AP Physics 1 Exam. Additional supplemental problems are to be had on the APlusPhysics website.
