Physics 12

Credits: 4

Physics 12 focuses on the details of motion and electrical fields.  Credit in Physics 11 is required before enrolling in Physics 12.  A strong background in Pre-Calculus 11 is highly recommended.  A scientific calculator with two-line display is required equipment; graphing calculators are permitted but not required.

Topics include understanding the motion of objects in two dimensions, the effects of forces on motion, momentum and energy.  Teachers can select between additional units on electrical fields or electromagnetism, and between force equilibrium or circular motion and gravitation.
