It recently occurred to me that there is a lot of overlap between the AP Physics 1 and AP Physics C curricula. Therefore, I took some time to look through the 1998 AP Physics C released exam and discovered 35 of the multiple choice problems also cover the AP Physics 1 topics. Therefore, please enjoy my solutions to 35 multiple choice problems which will help you review for the AP Physics 1 exam!
New In-Class Videos
It's been a long time since I posted an in-class video. Recently I changed my approach to Impulse a bit and added a couple of lectures. Here the are:
I mean really...
I've never really understood why people would "dislike" my Flipping Physics videos. I mean really, can you explain to me why someone would "dislike" this video?
Moron the Bad Advice.
Yes, so more on the Bad Advice fix I just posted. My original fix to the video involved a green screen and lots of verbiage explaining why my advice was bad. It was completely done and I was doing my "Last View" before posting and a much better solution occurred to me. Instead of extending the video by almost 80 seconds (never a good idea), the length of the fixed video is exactly the same as the original. I simply removed the "bad advice" audio and replaced it with "good advice". Duh! However, I spent so much time on the part I didn't end up using that I decided to post it. Enjoy.
It has been bothering me for a while that I gave bad advice in one of my videos. A fellow teacher even called me on it in a YouTube comment: "I teach the AP Physics C course, and some past tests instruct you NOT to break down the force components in a f-b diagram. I tell students to always keep weight as mg, and break it down later." A. F. Steindler. I finally decided to make it right, unfortunately that means I had to post an entirely new video and scrap the old one. Thank you for the suggestion Mr. Steindler. It is fixed now.
Yep, I make physics videos in the hope that you can learn physics. If you are a physics teacher, I am very hopeful that you will want to use them to help flip your physics class.
