This course covers kinematics, dynamics, rotational motion, gravity, oscillations, waves, optics, thermal physics, electrical forces, electrical potential, DC circuits, magnetic forces, atomic physics, and nuclear physics. Students are also introduced to the topics of special relativity and general relativity. This course uses all household items for labs. Students will measure their vertical pitching speed, measure the coefficient of kinetic friction, experiment with ping-pong pendulums, study adiabatic compression and expansion, and much more.
This softcover textbook is one part of a two-book set. You will also need the Solutions and Tests Manual to complete the course.
This advanced physics course can be taken after successfully completing a college-preparatory physics course. Students taking this course should also have successfully completed pre-calculus.
