AP Physics - hmwk and work for Feb Break

Today we finished Chp 14 (Heat). Homework is problems #47, 51, and 59.

You should also read Chp 15 (Thermodynamics) and review the examples in the chapter. You can try the homework also (last slide of the notes).

Lecture notes for both chapters are available HERE.

You should also review the file "AP Physics - Solving Problems - Fluids-Thermo.pdf" at the above location (tips on solving problems).

There is also a packet on Thermodynamics ("Thermo Review Packet") at the same web page that you need to read and do the practice problems. The solutions are included so that you can check your work.

Enjoy your break and we'll see you in a week.
