Advanced Topics in Physics
What is an LC Circuit?
Anyone taking the AP Physics C E&M exam should watch the following video: After watching the video, try 2011E2. 
Mock AP Testing Schedule
M 4/16  Th 4/26 Here's the schedule: M 4/16  E&M Free Response Questions Mock W 4/18  E&M Multiple Choice Mock W 4/18 11:59pm  Mechanics Review Video due to Google Classroom F 4/20  Mechanics Multiple Choice Mock Th 4/26  Mechanics Free Response Questions Mock For all the days in between, you'll be studying by practicing past AP questions of your choice. If you are taking the actual AP, I highly recommend doing recent tests from AP Central, as the test was changed in 2011. Otherwise, practice any questions that you can find. 
How can you help your fellow students remember mechanics?
2: F 4/13, 4: M 4/16b & T 4/17 Today, you'll first record your mechanics review video. Here's the list of possible topics:
Homework: Mechanics video due Wednesday, April 18th. First mock exam Monday, April 16th  E&M Free response questions! 
How well do you understand additional topics in mechanics?
2: Th 4/12, 4: Th 4/12 Exam on additional topics in mechanics TODAY! Homework: If you're taking the AP Physics C exam(s), start studying! Aim to try to do at least 2 past AP problems. Even if you're not taking AP Physics, you can start studying for your mock AP exams. 
How can you solve problems involving heavy ropes?
2: T 4/10, 4: W 4/11 Today, we'll do some AP Problems that involve the concept of heavy ropes. If you finish these, you may look online (check your Google Classroom "About" page) for more practice problems for your exam next class. Homework: Study for test on velocity dependent forces, gravitation/orbits, and simple harmonic motion on Thursday, April 12th. Finish your lab writeup, which is due Thursday, April 12th, same day as the test. The test includes this material, so it's important that you understand the lab. 
How well do you understand the physical pendulum?
2: M 4/9 lab, 4: T 4/10 lab Today, we'll design an experiment to find the moment of inertia about the center of mass of an odd shaped object. In order to do this, you'll have to understand the motion of a physical pendulum. Once you finish taking data, you'll finish your brief individual writeup of this lab. Do your writeup on paper which you can turn in in hard copy. Your analysis should include a labeled sketch of the setup, at least one free body diagram, sentences about what you did and why, and calculations necessary to find the moment of inertia about the center of mass. YOU MUST DO AT LEAST TWO DIFFERENT TRIALS to verify your calculation of the moment of inertia ABOUT THE CENTER OF MASS. With any time remaining, you can finish any required problems from topics up to this point, or if you've already completed all required problems, you can watch the homework video. Homework: Test on velocity dependent forces, gravitation/orbits, and simple harmonic motion on Thursday, April 12th. Finish your lab writeup, which is due Thursday, April 12th, same day as the test. The test includes this material, so it's important that you understand the lab. Watch the following two videos  they're the same problem with two different methods which are both useful:

How can we characterize simple harmonic motion?
2: M 3/26 lab & Th 3/29, 4: W 3/28 & Th 3/29 Today, watch the following two videos on simple harmonic oscillators with springs and pendulums. Alternatively, learn about simple harmonic oscillators using the available media of your choice  textbook, internet, etc. Small angle approximation: Then, in groups, apply what you know and solve problems with simple harmonic motion: Homework: Make sure you are caught up with the videos in preparation for the lab tomorrow. Also, make sure you've at least done 2009M2 which is the first problem in the Oscillation AP Problems packet. Test on velocity dependent forces, gravitation/orbits, and simple harmonic motion on Thursday, April 12th. 
How well do you understand the coffee filter lab?
2: T 3/27, 4: T 3/27b lab We'll start with some time to finalize your lab writeup, although it should be almost all the way done already. If you're already done, you can work on the velocity depending force AP problems from the previous post. Then, LAB QUIZ Today on the coffee filter lab. Homework: Finish all velocity dependent force problems. 
How do you solve problems with velocitydependent forces?
2: F 3/23, 4: T 3/27a lab Today, you'll use what you've learned to try a few problems with velocitydependent forces: Homework: Coffee Filter LAB QUIZ on Tuesday, March 27th! Watch the following video on simple harmonic motion (SHM): Check out this page for a better understanding of "angular frequency" ω (aka frequency of oscillation) and how it relates to the angular speed ω we already studied in rotation: 
How can we characterize air resistance?
2: T 3/20 lab, 4: Today, we will study "velocity dependent forces." We'll get back into the swing of mechanics by doing a lab where we investigate the concepts of air resistance (drag) and terminal velocity. You'll take advantage of available technology by using motion sensors or by analyzing videos you take and graphing position vs. time and velocity vs. time in LoggerPro. In the end, you'll see how drag force relates to velocity. Homework: Lab in journal due Friday, March 23rd. LAB QUIZ on Friday! Make sure to answer the following questions in your lab writeup in addition to the usual stuff:
