About this course

In this four-part series, we will explore AP Physics 1 concepts and prepare for the AP Physics 1 Exam in an exciting and entirely new way. Increase your skills – and your readiness – for the AP Exam though quality videos, inquiry labs, Hollywood-style Concept Trailers™, Direct Measurement Videos, AP problem-solving sessions and more!

In Part 2: Rotational Motion you will learn how to describe rotational motion with kinematics and how torque alters an object’s state of motion. You will learn about rotational energy and angular momentum, and how their conservation laws affect motion. Gravitational forces between two bodies and the resulting motion will be described, as well as simple harmonic motion. The course will cover these physical concepts through lectures, demonstrations, labs, and problem solving strategies

The enhanced AP Exam Prep PLUS 5 is bundled with the edX Verified Certificate. To get PLUS 5, register for the Verified Certificate. The course instructors will email you with directions for how to receive both the extra exam prep and certificate.
