AP Practice Problems for Thermo

In case you were absent or lost yours, here is the sheet with the two AP Practice Problems for fluids/thermo. 


"AP Physics - Heat-Thermo review problems.doc"

Don't forget, there are also a bunch of review packets on that site for you to use as you prepare for the AP test.  (example "AP Physics - Thermo Review Packet.pdf")

Heat/Fluids/Thermo online labs and AP Practice problems

Got to the following sites and follow instructions.

Change volume, E, and molecules and observe what happens

Run simulation, change variables and observe what happens
Read directions and do all 7 experiments

When done, come up and get the two practice AP Problems which are due next class.
