Physics II AP is a second year Calculus based advanced placement physics course. The Course is designed for future science majors, particularly for students planning to major in engineering or the Natural sciences.

Advanced Placement topics

- Graphing motion
- Calculus notation (the derivative and Integral)
- Vectors and 2 dimensional motion
- Newton's Laws and Forces (with the spring force)
- Work, Energy, and Power (including Potential energy of springs)
- Momentum and the Center of mass
- Rotational motion, Rotational Inertia, and Rotational Energy
- Simple Harmonic Motion
- Universal Gravitation and Keplers Laws
