AP® Physics 2


As the second-semester version of an algebra-based introductory physics course, AP® Physics 2 exam levels up topics beyond classical mechanics. That's right: Shmoop is modern. Shmoop is down with the lingo. We're all about quantum mechanics and special relativity, and we're hip to thermodynamics, electrostatics, circuits, and optics. It's like groundbreaking physicist Louis-Victor-Pierre-Raymond, 7th duc de Broglie once said: "Dude, finding new things is legit the actual best."

Just kidding. He actually wrote, "The actual state of our knowledge is always provisional and…there must be, beyond what is actually known, immense new regions to discover." Less funny, but very wise.
