"The best physics books are the ones kids will actually read." AP Physics 2 Essentials is an easy-to-read companion to the AP Physics 2 curriculum, featuring more than 450 worked-out problems with full solutions. AP Physics 2 Essentials covers all major topics of the AP Physics 2 course, including fluids, thermal physics, electrostatics, circuits, magnetism, optics, and modern physics. AP Physics 2 Essentials is integrated with the APlusPhysics.com website, which includes online question and answer forums, videos, animations, and supplemental problems to help you master the essential concepts of physics. This book is designed to assist physics students in their high school AP Physics courses both as a guide throughout the course as well as a review book to assist in end-of-course exam preparation. Its focus is on providing the bare bones, essential concepts necessary for success in the course in a straightforward and easy-to-read manner, leaving development of in-depth problem solving and lab work to the classroom, where it is most effective. In short, this is not intended as a substitute for a standard textbook or course, but rather as an invaluable supplementary resource. This book includes more than 60 AP-style problems to test your understanding and help prepare you for the AP Physics 2 Exam. Additional supplemental problems are available on the APlusPhysics website.

This second volume covers the mechanics of fluids, the principles of thermodynamics and their applications (without reference to the microscopic structure of systems), and the microscopic interpretation of thermodynamics. It is part of a four-volume textbook, which covers electromagnetism, mechanics, fluids and thermodynamics, and waves and light, is designed to reflect the typical syllabus during the first two years of a calculus-based university physics program. Throughout all four volumes, particular attention is paid to in-depth clarification of conceptual aspects, and to this end the historical roots of the principal concepts are traced. Emphasis is also consistently placed on the experimental basis of the concepts, highlighting the experimental nature of physics. Whenever feasible at the elementary level, concepts relevant to more advanced courses in quantum mechanics and atomic, solid state, nuclear, and particle physics are included. Each chapter begins with an introduction that briefly describes the subjects to be discussed and ends with a summary of the main results. A number of “Questions” are included to help readers check their level of understanding. The textbook offers an ideal resource for physics students, lecturers and, last but not least, all those seeking a deeper understanding of the experimental basics of physics.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Renowned authors William Briggs and Lyle Cochran have built from the ground up a new AP® calculus program that draws on their decades of teaching experience and carries the teacher's voice beyond the classroom. That voice is evident in the lively narrative, the intuitive figures, and the integrated questions that check for comprehension. The result is a master AP® teacher leading AP® students to deeper levels of understanding. The authors appeal to readers' geometric intuition to introduce fundamental concepts and lay the foundation for success on the AB and BC Calculus exams. Briggs/Cochran AP ® Calculus: AP ® Aligned: AP-specific chapter content clearly correlates to the AP Curriculum Framework and prepares students for the AB or BC exam. Geometric Intuition: The authors appeal to students' intuition and geometric instincts to make calculus natural and believable. They introduce new ideas through concrete examples, figures, applications, or analogies. Ground breaking Technology & Interactive Figures: Interactive figures within the eBook enable teachers and students to manipulate figures and bring hard-to-convey concepts to life. A Balanced Approach: The authors purposely teach from examples that provide in depth explanations and build students' conceptual understanding and computational fluency.
