AP Physics B Scope and Sequence Topic: Motion in 1 Dimension; Motion Graphs Approximate Time : 3 weeks 1 st 3 weeks Essential Learning Objective AP Objectives Topics (not in sequential order) Resources (Cutnell/Johnson) I. Kinematics A. Motion in One Dimension 1. Students should understand the general relationships among position, velocity, and acceleration for the motion of a particle along a straight line so that given a graph of one of the kinematic quantities, position, velocity, or acceleration, as a function of time, they can recognize in what time intervals the other two are positive, negative, or zero, and can identify or sketch a graph of each as a function of time. 2. Students should understand the special case of motion with constant acceleration so that they can: a) Write down expressions for velocity and position as a functions of time, and identify or sketch graphs of these quantities. b) Use the equations v = v 0 + at , x = x 0 + v 0 t + at 2 /2, and v 2 - v 0 2 = 2 a ( x - x 0 ) to solve problems involving one-dimensional motion with constant acceleration.

AP Physics B Scope and Sequence Topic: Motion in 2 Dimensions; Newton’s Laws Approximate Time : 3 weeks 2 nd 3 weeks Essential Learning Objective AP Objectives Topics (not in sequential order) Resources (Cutnell/Johnson) I. Kinematics A. Motion in Two Dimensions 1. Students should know how to deal with displacement and velocity vectors so they can: a) Relate velocity, displacement, and time for motion with constant velocity. b) Calculate the component of a vector along a specified axis, or resolve a vector into components along two specified mutually perpendicular axes. c) Add vectors in order to find the net displacement of a particle that undergoes successive straight-line displacements. d) Subtract displacement vectors in order to find the location of one particle relative to another, or calculate the average velocity of a particle. e) Add or subtract velocity vectors in order to calculate the velocity change or average acceleration of a particle, or the velocity of one particle relative to another. 2. Students should understand the motion of projectiles in a uniform gravitational field so they can: a) Write down expressions for the horizontal and vertical components of velocity and position as functions of time, and sketch of identify graphs of these components. b) Use these expressions in analyzing the motion of a projectile that is projected above level ground with a specified initial velocity. II. Newton's Laws of Motion A. Static Equilibrium (First Law) 1. Students should be able to analyze situations in which a particle remains at rest, or moves with constant velocity, under the influence of several forces. B. Dynamics of a Single Body (Second Law) IA, IB Free Body Diagrams Kinematics in 2 Dimensions Newton’s Laws of Motion Projectile Motion Ch 3 – 4 2

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
