Learn AP Physics - AP Physics B

See our Terms of Service for more info on how your privacy is protected. You'll receive a new AP Physics-style multiple-choice problem delivered to your email inbox each weekday. Click on the link in the email to see the solution. This non-calculus, college-level physics curriculum includes Newtonian mechanics, thermodynamics, waves, sound, optics, electricity, magnetism, atomic physics, nuclear physics, and relativity. While there are distinct advantages to learning--either in a classroom or online--with a real physics teacher, there are a number of online references that can help supplement your instruction.

Archive (Appropriate for Grades 6-12): MythBusters Live MythBusters Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage shared their experiences as they make experimentation come alive through this dynamic presentation about science behind the exhibit.


The interactive exhibit, created by Discovery Communications and Exhibits Development Group (EDG), in partnership with the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, helps inspire learning beyond the walls of the classroom. Scientists, engineers, and mathematicians drive innovation that will fuel our future. This live event will spark the natural curiosity of budding scientists by showing students just how fun science can be and how it’s helped Adam and Jamie follow their passion to ultimately find success.

HyperPhysics. Physics Flash Animations. We have been increasingly using Flash animations for illustrating Physics content.

Physics Flash Animations

This page provides access to those animations which may be of general interest. The animations will appear in a separate window. The animations are sorted by category, and the file size of each animation is included in the listing. Also included is the minimum version of the Flash player that is required; the player is available free from The categories are: In addition, I have prepared a small tutorial in using Flash to do Physics animations. LInks to versions of these animations in other languages, other links, and license information appear towards the bottom of this page. The Animations There are 99 animations listed below.

Other Languages and Links These animations have been translated into Catalan, Spanish and Basque: En aquest enllaç podeu trobar la versió al català de les animacions Flash de Física. Many animations have been translated into Greek by Vangelis Koltsakis. The Physics Classroom Topics. 1-D Kinematics The motion of objects in one-dimension are described using word, diagrams, numbers, graphs, and equations.

The Physics Classroom Topics

Newton's Laws Newton's three laws of motion are explained and their application to the analysis of the motion of objects in one dimension is discussed. Vectors - Motion and Forces in Two Dimensions Vector principles and operations are introduced and combined with kinematic principles and Newton's laws to describe, explain and analyze the motion of objects in two dimensions.
