    My (Scott Secrest) YouTube Video showing how to use Separation of Variables for Air Resistance.
    Another YouTube Video showing how to solve generic separation of variable problems (I use before doing air resistance in Mechanics or RC Circuits in E&M).
    Video walk through of the standard air resistance / terminal velocity situation.
    Velocity dependent forces (student worksheet) - Worked example from past APC exam with annotations, and two problems to be worked by students. From Joe Morin.

    Static Beam Lab: Students predict the tension for a horizontal beam supporting a weight and then for when the beam is at an angle to the horizontal. A force sensor allows them to test their prediction. Below is a picture of the beams in both configurations. - Dan Burns {Static Beam Lab.docx}

    PhET Masses and Springs Hooke's Law Activity
    Students use F=kx to find spring constant without knowing actual x, find length of spring, find unknown mass, then g on Planet X. Good practice for Hooke's Law. - Dan Burns

    AP Physics 1 Work Energy Power Problem Set - Problem set built by Bob Enck, Dan Fullerton and Paul Sedita in an effort to start an AP-1 style problem bank. Feel free to print/use in your classrooms. Please don't re-post the files themselves, but rather only the links to the files, to allow us to quickly and easy update and continue to build upon these problems. Thank you! -- Dan Fullerton (dfullerton@aplusphysics.com). PS - anyone interested in adding on to these problems, we'd love the help!

    Energy & Work Notes:
    Here are my notes from the chapter on Energy and Work. It's basic, but I feel sums up the important definitions in a small package. I always have my students read these notes before we begin the chapter. {Chapter 6 - Work.pdf} Contributed: Mark W. Hossler

    Lab - By Valerie Risk
    Students use their phone flashlight shining through a Dixie cup with a grid of push-pin holes in the bottom, to graph light data that follows a 1/r^2 law. We use it as an intro to Fields. Measure distances from the light source, not from the end of the dixie cup.
