Overview

Preparing for the AP Physics 2 exam requires a deep understanding of many different topics in physics as well as an understanding of the AP exam and the types of questions it asks. This course is Part 1 of our AP Physics 2 series designed to prepare you for the AP exam. 

In Part 1, you will learn about fluids and thermodynamics. You will explore pressure, buoyant forces and concepts that involve conservation of mass and energy. You will also be learning about heat, its transfer and how we have taken advantage of its behavior in different types of technology.

As you work through this course, you will find lecture videos taught by expert AP physics teachers, practice multiple choice questions and free response questions that are similar to what you will encounter on the AP exam and tutorial videos that show you step-by-step how to solve problems. By the end of the course, you will be prepared to take on the AP exam!
