AP Physics Equations

A whole crap load of AP Physics equations

Resistance in a wire R = ρ(L/A)
1 ampere 1C/s
Electrical Power (Watt’s Law) P = IV
Electrical Voltage V = IR
Resistance in Series R = R₁ + R₂ + R₃ + ...
Resistance in Parallel 1/R = 1/R₁ + 1/R₂ + 1/R₃ + ...
Single Point Charge E = (kQ)/r²
Electric Potential (some distance from a single point charge) V = (kQ)/r
Parallel Plate Capacitor C = (ε₀)(A)/d
Charge of e⁻ -1.6⋿-19 C
Charge of Proton 1.6⋿-19 C
Electrical Force F = qE
Coulomb’s Law F = k(Q₁Q₂)/r² --> K = 9⋿9 N*m²/C²
Pressure P = P₀ + ρgh
Pressure P(atm) + P = P(gauge)
Volume Flow Rate A₁V₁ = A₂V₂
Bernulis Equation P₁ + ρgy₁ + .5ρV₁² = P₂ + ρgy₂ + .5ρV₂²

Pressure P = F/A
Density D = m/v
Density H₂O 1000 kg/m²
Heat Engine Efficiency e = W/Q(hot) or e = (Q(hot)-Q(cold))/Q(hot) or e(ideal) = T(hot)-T(cold)/T(hot)
1st Law of Thermodynamics ΔU = Q + W
Isothermal gas gas held at constant temperature (PV=nRT
Adiabatic gas no heat flows in or out (ΔU = W)
Isobaric gas constant pressure (Area under curve = work done)
Isochloric gas constant volume (W = 0, ΔU = 0)
Ideal Gas Law PV=nRT
STP (Standard Temp. and Pressure) 1atm (1⋿5 pa) and 298 *K
Kinetic Energy ΔKE = Δ.5mv²

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
