AP Physics 2: Mon. 11/26 – Fri. 11/30

Welcome back from Thanksgiving Break! We’ll be returning to an AP Physics 1 topic as we review DC circuits before making them more complicated by adding capacitors (of course). Here are your assignments for Monday, November 26th through Friday, November 30th:

  • Mon. 11/26
    • intro to DC circuits
    • HW: read Chapter 18-1 thru 18-3; do Questions #1-14, 18-19
  • Tue. 11/27
    • Lab #2-5: Direct Current Simulations
    • HW: Lab #2-5: Direct Current Simulations (due Thu 11/29)
  • Wed. 11/28
    • finish Lab #2-5 & review book homework from Ch. 18
    • HW: read Chapter 18-4 thru 18-6, 18-8; do Problems #1-11
  • Thu. 11/29
    • energy and power as it relates to direct current
    • HW: do Chapter 18 Problems #12-16, 20-22
    • DUE: Lab #2-5: Direct Current Simulations
  • Fri. 11/30
    • review book problems
    • HW: do Chapter 18 Problems #26-39

We have three weeks to learn DC and RC circuits, including Kirchhoff’s loop rules and the EMF of batteries, before the 1st Semester Exam, so while some of this material is review, make sure you keep up with the assignments so you don’t fall behind. Have a wonderful week!
