Study Notes

Equations for AP Physics 1 Exam

• Velocity (v) is calculated using the equation V = Δx / Δt or v = d / t, indicating displacement over time.

• Acceleration (a) is determined by a = Δv / Δt or a = d / t, defining the change in velocity over time.

• Displacement (d) can be calculated with the equation d = ½(Vf + Vo)Δt, which uses average velocity over a time interval.

• The force of gravity in the parallel direction is given by Fg|| = mg sin θ, relating gravitational force and angular displacement.

• The perpendicular gravitational force is described by Fg⊥ = mg cos θ, which is crucial for calculating the normal force on inclined planes.

• Mechanical energy conservation is represented as MEo = MEf, stating that the original mechanical energy equals final mechanical energy when no work is done by applied forces or friction.

• Work due to friction can be calculated using Wf = ΔME, indicating a change in mechanical energy when no applied forces are acting.

• Net work done is equal to the change in kinetic energy, represented by Wnet = ΔKE, which is always applicable.

• Power (P) can be expressed as P = ΔE / Δt or P = W / Δt or P = Fv cos(θ) / Δt, illustrating energy usage or work done over time.

• Conservation of linear momentum is described by ΣPo = ΣPf, applicable when net force on a system equals zero, such as during collisions.

• Angular velocity (ω) is described by ω = Δθ / Δt, measuring change in radians over time.

• Angular acceleration (α) is defined as α = Δω / Δt, analogous to linear acceleration in its relationship with change over time.

• The relationship for angular velocities is given by ωf² = ωo² + 2αθ, akin to the linear motion equations, useful for rotational dynamics.

• Angular displacement can be found using Δθ = ½(ωf + ωo)Δt, similar to calculating linear displacement with initial and final velocities.

• Tangential velocity (Vf) in circular motion is determined by Vf = rω, linking radius and angular velocity (must be in radians).

• The center of mass velocity (Vcm) is Vcm = rω, valid for rolling objects where there is no slipping.

• For objects in circular motion, the total force is expressed as ΣF = mac, relating the sum of forces to mass and centripetal acceleration.

• Moment of inertia (I) is given by I = Σmr², calculating an object’s resistance to angular acceleration based on its mass distribution.

• Conservation of angular momentum is represented by ΣLo = ΣLf, emphasizing that the total angular momentum remains constant if net external torque equals zero.

• Beat frequency (Fbeat) is calculated as Fbeat = |F1 - F2| and occurs when two similar frequency sounds combine, creating audible beats.

• Electric charge (q) is calculated using q = ne, where n represents the excess number of charges, and e is the elementary charge.

• The electric potential difference (Δv) is determined by Δv = ΔPEelectric / q, relating change in electric potential energy to the charge involved.
