AP Physics Thermodynamics Wrapup
Here are your basic equations for thermodynamics. Theres a bunch of them.
l l0T
This is the equation for the change in length of an object as a function of
temperature. The is the coefficient of linear expansion, l0 is the
AP Physics Electric Current Wrapup
What equations will I have to play with that deal with electricity and magnetism? Asks the
concerned AP Physics student.
Why, you will have these. Responds the kindly Physics Kahuna.

V
This is the definition of capac
AP Physics Charge Wrap up
Quite a few complicated equations for you to play with in this unit. Here them babies is:
F
1 q1q2
4 0 r 2
This is good old Coulombs law. You use it to calculate the force exerted
by two charges on each other. The
1
term is basic
AP Physics Kinematic Wrap Up
So what do you need to know about this motion in two -dimension stuff to get a good score on the
old AP Physics Test?
First off, here are the equations that youll have to work with:
v vo at

AP Physics Newtons Laws Wrapup
There arent a lot of equations in this section of the old curriculum that youll have on
your equation sheet. Just two.
Here they are:
F FNet ma
Ffric N
The first one is simply the second law. The second equation is a genera
AP Physics Energy and Springs
Another major potential energy area that physics is enamored of is the spring. Now
youve seen springs before and know what they do. You squeeze a spring, i.e., compress
it, and it wants to get back to its original length. It
AP Physics Momentum AP Wrapup
There are two, and only two, equations that you get to play with:
p mv
This is the equation for momentum.
J F t p
This is the equation for impulse. The equation sheet uses, fo r some reason, the
symbol J for impulse (the Phys
AP Physics Torque Wrapup
We got one really fine equation. Here it is:
rF sin
This is, of course, the good old torque equation. Recall that if the applied force is perpendicular
to the lever arm (r), then the torque equation becomes: rF
Heres the stuff th
AP Physics Waves Wrapup
There are four equations that you get to play with. You must recognize them, right? Here they are:
v f
T
This baby relates wavelength and frequency to the velocity of the
wave. Very important equation, not only now, but later on as
AP Physics Fluids Wrap Up
Here are the equations that you get to play around with:
p p0 gh
This is the equation for the pressure of something as a function of depth in a fluid.
You would use it to figure out the pressure acting at a depth of 25.0 m in a l
AP Physics Quantum Wrap Up
Not too many equations in this unit. Just a few. Here they be:
E hf pc
This is the equation for the energy of a photon. The hf part has to do with Plancks
constant and frequency. The other part, the pc bit, shows that the energy
