AP® Physics 2 - Part 3: Optics and Modern Physics
Preparing for the AP Physics 2 exam requires a deep understanding of many different topics in physics as well as an understanding of the AP exam and the types of questions it asks. This course is Part 3 of our AP Physics 2 series designed to prepare you for the AP exam.
In Part 3, you will be learning about optics and modern physics. You will explore light and how it interacts with different mediums, the atom and some interesting things that go on there, and how nuclear physics is being used today.
As you work through this course, you will find lecture videos taught by expert AP physics teachers, practice multiple choice questions and free response questions that are similar to what you will encounter on the AP exam and tutorial videos that show you step-by-step how to solve problems. By the end of the course, you will be prepared to take on the AP exam!
This course is authorized as an Advanced Placement® (AP®) course by the AP Course Audit. The AP Course Audit was created by the College Board to give schools and students the confidence that all AP courses meet or exceed the same clearly articulated curricular expectations of colleges and universities.
