## ISM AP Physics C 2022

Advanced Placement Physics C Mechanics is a calculus based physics class. It is a college level class designed for students planning to major in Engineering or Science.

The textbook we use is Halliday and Resnick Fundamentals of Physics 10th Edition.

This website will provide lessons and resources to help you be successful in this class. It will be updated frequently, so check back often.

The single most important thing you can do to learn physics is to work problems. Lots and lots of problems. Every evening.

1. Please work and turn in the rolling/sliding sphere problem from 12.05.22!

If you have not already done so, read chapter 11. That's the chapter about rolling motion. A very similar problem is in the problem section of chapter 11. And there is another very similar to this in your revision guide.

Start by drawing a FBD and writing Newton's 2nd Law.

This is a really common problem. Google it, if thinking about it hurts your brain.
