## AP Physics 1 Review - Vectors and Kinematics

Introduction - Vector Properties and 1D Kinematics Recall that vectors are any quantity with both a magnitude and direction. Magnitude represents how long the vector is, and is often denoted analytically in an equation by an absolute value symbol, |x|. Indicating both magnitude and direction is usually done by one of two ways: 1)...

## What is an Electric Force?

An electrifying description regarding forces We’ve discussed before what a force was and even gave examples of some on one of my previous posts. Some included gravitational force, centripetal force, and even buoyancy force due to a fluid. But there is also another force that is just as important and that deals with...

## AP Physics 1 Exam Review - Beats

With the release of our new AP Physics 1 content, we decided that it'd probably be best to cover a question from the sample question list we have available. In an earlier post, we discussed the major changes that AP Physics has gone through by being split into two separate subjects. With these new...

## How does Momentum Relate to Force?

Two different concepts are more related than you think You may think that the two concepts are different but they are more closely related than you think. Momentum is defined as the product of an objects mass and its velocity, or ∆p=m∆v. Meaning then that objects with a higher mass and higher...
