The world of Electricity and Magnetism is accessible only through the concepts of Physics using the tools of Math and Calculus. Physics 1 and 2 are adequate choices for most students who plan to pursue studies in Life Sciences, Pre-Medicine, and some Applied Sciences, as well as other fields not directly related to Science. However, if you are planning to pursue a career in areas such as Physical Sciences, Engineering, Math, or Computational Sciences, the AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism course will put you on the pathway towards accomplishment. Due to the rigor and pace of the content, this course is intended to challenge extremely motivated students who have a strong curiosity about Physics.
It is expected that students will have a command of mathematical skills for basic Differential and Integral Calculus, as these concepts are used throughout the course. This course covers Electrostatics, which includes Charge and Coulomb’s Law, Electric Field and Electric Potential, Gauss’ Law and Fields & Potentials of other Charge Distributions; Conductors, Capacitors & Dielectrics which includes Electrostatics with Conductors, Capacitance and Parallel Plate; Electric Circuits which includes Current, Resistance & Power, Steady State Direct Current Circuits with Battery & Resistors, Capacitors in Circuits and Transients in RC Circuits; Magnetic Fields which includes Force on a Moving Charge, Force on Current carrying Conductors, Fields of long Current-carrying Wires, Biot Savart law and Ampere’s law; and Electromagnetism, which includes Electromagnetic Induction, Faraday’s Law, Lenz’s Law, Inductance, LC & LR circuits, and Maxwell’s Equations.
The proficient online tutors of Growing Stars will engage our students in the analysis of physical situations and problems, interpreting them both mathematically and verbally. Our specialist online tutors of AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism encourage positive collaborative learning, which involves constructive discussion of problem sets and concept questions. This approach enables our students to visualize an equation for a problem, to gain valuable problem-solving skills through the process of analyzing data, and to solve problems with a high degree of complexity, learning to associate given information with a corresponding Physics principle.
