Week of January 27, 2020

This Week in AP Physics
We will continue to explore thermal physics by looking at methods of energy transfer, the kinetic theory of an ideal gas, and (just barely by the very end of the week) the laws of thermodynamics. Expect some tremendously great problems and a couple of nights of homework problems. Labs (and most likely the unit test) will be the week of February 3. That’s lit!

This Week in Physics
We will finish assignment 3 from unit 4 and do a short experiment on the law of conservation of mechanical energy followed by a quiz over unit 4 goal set 3. When assigned please take notes on video 4 from unit 4. We will do assignment 4 and will then take the unit 4 test, most likely by the end of the week. Yay! Links to all relevant materials may be found on our unit 4 webpage.
